How do you get the best deal on a flight from NYC to QLA?

Hotwire has been doing this for years, so we know a few ways to get the best rate on your flight to Los Angeles. 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?

It pays to be a weekday warrior. Tuesday and Wednesday typically have the best rates. Next, Thursday and, surprisingly, Saturday. Most 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?

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

Why travel during the off-peak season?

It's all about going to a place when its weather is at its best. Summertime is when Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are at their most popular. Popular Spring Break destinations are New Orleans, California, and Florida. 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. During fall, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and New England draw visitors. Flying during the off-peak seasons to certain locations can mean extra money in your wallet -- yes, please!

Is that the lowest price?

Airline carriers change their rates by the hour sometimes. If you see the price you like, then pick it. Unsurprisingly, you're not the only vacation-hungry person waiting an amazing rate on a flight from New York to Los Angeles. You could lose your opportunity to get the flight and the schedule you want.
