Which days of the week are cheapest to fly?

Why travel during the off-peak season?

Off-peak and shoulder seasons are when most vacationers aren't flying to certain locations. So when it is cold, 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 gets busy. You can usually save on your ticket when you fly when everyone else isn't.
