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:

Why travel during the off-peak season?

Have good weather, will travel. Summertime is when Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are at their most popular. During spring, New Orleans, Florida, and California open their arms to tourists. Feeling the bitter cold? Well, the Caribbean Islands and Mexico can warm you up. Unless you're a ski bum -- then places like Colorado will be your winter wonderland. Who doesn't love some good fall foliage? The Pacific Northwest, Northern California, and New England are popular this time of the year. Flying during less popular periods can mean extra money in your wallet -- yes, please!
