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

What's the Saturday night stay rule?

Staying the weekend at your destination, like Tahoe City, usually means lower airfare since most people fly during this time. Of course, we don't want to twist your rubber arm or anything.

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

Off-peak and shoulder seasons are when most people aren't going to certain locations. So when it is cold, most people head to warmer climates like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like our feathered friends. But in the summer months, you'll find that Europe is where it's at. You can usually save on your flight when you avoid flying during the peak seasons.
