How do you get the best deal on a flight from Los Angeles to Washington?

Hotwire has been doing this for years, which means getting that great deal on a Washington flight is easy-peasy. You'll make spending less look so very good with a few simple steps.

Which days of the week are cheapest 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. 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 holiday by a day and increase your savings.
  • Monday through Thursday—If you're flying internationally, deals are often available when departing these days.

Why are flights cheaper if you stay over the weekend?

If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to QLA can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less flexible itineraries, so that means savings for you. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.

What are shoulder seasons?

Shoulder or off-peak seasons are when most vacationers aren't traveling to certain locations. So when it is chilly, most people head off to warmer places like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like our feathered friends. But during the summer months, you'll find that Europe is really popular. You can usually save on your flight when you avoid flying during the peak seasons.

If the price is right, pick it!

Airline carriers change their rates seemingly by the minute. If you see the price you like, then grab it! Unsurprisingly, you're not the only vacation-hungry person seeking an amazing price on a flight from Los Angeles to Washington.
