How can you get a great rate on tickets from WAS to MSY?

Hotwire has been in the game a long time, so we know a few ways to snag the best price on your flight to New Orleans. You'll make spending less look so very good with a little know-how.

Which days of the week are cheapest to fly?

Going with the flow can pay dividends when it comes to getting an affordable flight. 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 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 WAS can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less elastic itineraries, so that means 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. Popular Spring Break destinations are New Orleans, California, and Florida. 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!
