What is the cheapest day to fly?

Going with the flow can pay dividends when it comes to getting an affordable flight. Tuesday and Wednesday typically have the best rates. Next in line are Thursday and, surprisingly, Saturday. Most people like to come back from their trip on Sunday so you can save by leaving a day earlier.

What's the Saturday night stay rule?

Staying the weekend at your destination, like Columbus, usually means a less-expensive ticket since most people fly during this time. We are all for that!

What are shoulder seasons?

Off-peak and shoulder seasons are when most vacationers aren't going to certain locations. So when it's cold, most people head to warmer climates like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like our feathered friends. But during the summer, you'll find that Europe is really popular. You may not get the ideal weather, but you'll typically get better prices and avoid the crowds.
