How do you get the best deal on a flight from Sacramento to New Orleans?

We've been doing this for years, so we know a few ways to find the best price on your flight to New Orleans. You'll make spending less look so very good with a little know-how.

What is the best day of the week to book a flight?

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 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 itineraries, so that means savings for you. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.

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

It's all about going to a place when its weather is at its best. Summertime is when Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are at their most popular. 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. During autumn, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and New England draw visitors. Flying during less popular periods can mean extra money in your wallet -- yes, please!
