You're on the perfect page to score an awesome deal on your next flight from New Orleans.

How do I get the best price on my flight from MSY to HOU?

Hotwire has been doing this for years, so we know a couple ways to snag the best deal on your flight to Houston. You'll make spending less look so very good 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. 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 vacay by a day and increase your savings.
  • Monday through Thursday—If you're flying internationally, deals are often available when departing these days.

Can staying the weekend get me a cheaper ticket?

Spending the weekend at your destination, like Houston, usually means a less-expensive return ticket since most people fly during this time. We're all for that!

What are shoulder seasons?

There's good reason that many people travel during certain times of the year -- they want to enjoy incredible weather. Summertime is when Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are at their most popular. During spring, New Orleans, Florida, and California open their arms to tourists. Winter is prime for Mexico and the Caribbean because of its warm weather, as well as ski and snowboard destinations like the Colorado Rockies. Who doesn't love that harvest of autumn colors? 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!

Is that the lowest price?

Airline carriers change their rates frequently. If a price you like pops up, then get it! Unsurprisingly, you're not the only person seeking a great price on a flight from New Orleans to Houston. You might lose your chance to get the flight and the times you need.

Are there any other ways to save on my flight to Houston?
