How do I get the best price on my flight from SJC to MEX?

We've been doing this for years, which means getting that great deal on a Mexico City flight is easy-peasy. You'll make spending less look so very good with a few simple tips and tricks.

What is the cheapest day to fly?

It pays to be a weekday warrior. Those middle children of the work week, Tuesday and Wednesday, typically have the best rates. Next in line are Thursday and, surprisingly, Saturday. Most people like to fly 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 SJC can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less elastic schedules, so that means more savings for you. Of course, we don't want to twist your rubber arm or anything.

Can you save while traveling during the off-peak season?

Have good weather, will travel. For example, Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are big hits in the summer. 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 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!

Is that the lowest price?

Airlines change their rates frequently. If a price you like pops up, then pick it! Unsurprisingly, you're not the only vacation-hungry person seeking a terrific bargain on a flight from San Francisco to Mexico City. You could miss out on your opportunity to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
