Washington (WAS) to San Francisco (SJC)

And although we agree walking is great exercise, you probably want to get there before the year ends. Fortunately, you found us. We can get you an amazing rate on your next flight from WAS to SJC.

How do I get the best price on my ticket from WAS to SJC?

We've been doing this for a long time, which means getting that great deal on a San Francisco flight is easy-peasy. You'll make spending less look so very good with a little know-how.

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?

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 flexible 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?

Shoulder or off-peak seasons are when most people aren't going to certain locations. So when it is chilly, most people head off to warmer places like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like our feathered friends. But in the summer, you'll find that Europe is where it's at. If you want lower airfare and avoid the crowds, travel when everyone else isn't.

Is that the lowest price?

You're not the only flier waiting a stellar price on a ticket from Washington to San Francisco. You may miss out on your opportunity to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
