Chicago (CHI) to Buffalo (BUF)

Whaa?! A trip to Buffalo! You will definitely need a ticket to Buffalo then. Well, unless you'd rather walk. And although we agree walking is great exercise, you probably want to get there before the year ends. Luckily, you found us. We can get you a fabulous deal on your ticket from CHI to BUF.

How do I get the best price on my flight fromChicago to Buffalo?

We've been in the game a long time, which means getting that great deal on a Buffalo flight is easy-peasy. You can pocket that extra cash for more than just getting from point A to point B with a little know-how.

What is the best day of the week to book a flight?

With the right attitude and flexibility, you can fly for less. Below are the cheapest days to fly:

  • Tuesday and Wednesday—You know how most stores are not crowded midweek? Same thing here. So, get on while the getting is good.
  • Thursday and Saturday—Get a head start on that Friday crowd. This also works on your return flight. Shorten your vacay by a day and increase your savings.
  • Monday through Thursday—If you're flying internationally, deals are often available when departing these days.

What's the Saturday night stay rule?

If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to CHI can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less elastic schedules, so that means savings for you. Of course, we don't want to twist your rubber arm or anything.

Why travel during the off-peak season?

It's all about going to a place when its weather is at its best. For example, Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are big hits in the summer. Popular Spring Break destinations are New Orleans, California, and Florida. Winter is prime for Mexico and the Caribbean because of its warm weather, as well as ski and snowboard destinations like the Colorado Rockies. In the autumn, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and New England draw visitors. If you can plan your trip around these peak seasons, you'll not only save money, but you'll typically avoid the crowds. Win-win in our books.

If the price is right, pick it!

Airline carriers change their rates seemingly by the minute. If you see the price you like, then pick it! You're not the only vacation-hungry person longing for a great price on a flight from Chicago to Buffalo. You could lose your opportunity to get the flight and the time you like.
