How do you get the best deal on a ticket from HOU to WAS?
We've been doing this for a long time, so we know a few ways to find the best deal on your flight to Washington. You'll make spending less look so very good with a little know-how.
What is the cheapest day to fly?
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. Most people opt to depart at the beginning or end of the week.
- Thursday and Saturday—Get a head start on that Friday crowd. This also works on your return flight. Shorten your holiday 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?
Staying the weekend at your destination, like Washington, usually means a less-expensive return ticket since most people fly during this time. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.
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 in the summer, you'll find that Europe is where it's at. You can usually save on your flight when you fly when everyone else isn't.
If the price is right, pick it!
Airline carriers change their rates often. If a price you want pops up, then grab it. There are a lot of others that are waiting a great deal on a flight from Houston to Washington. You could lose your chance to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
