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

Which days of the week are cheapest 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. So, get on while the getting is good.
  • Thursday and Saturday—Get a head start on that Friday crowd. This also works on your return flight. Shorten your vacay by a day and increase your savings.
  • Monday through Thursday—If you're flying internationally, deals are often available when departing these days.

Why are flights cheaper if you stay over the weekend?

If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to SAC 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. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.

What are shoulder seasons?

It's all about going to a place when its weather is at its best. For example, Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are big hits in the summer. 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. Who doesn't love some good fall foliage? The Pacific Northwest, Northern California, and New England are popular this time of the year. If you can plan your trip around these peak seasons, you'll not only save money, but you'll typically avoid the crowds. Win-win in our books.
