How do I get the best price on my ticket fromFresno to Chicago?
We've been in the game a long time, which means getting that great deal on a Chicago flight is easy-peasy. You'll make spending less look so very good with a few simple tips and tricks.
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. 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 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 FAT 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.
What are shoulder seasons?
Off-peak and shoulder seasons are when most vacationers aren't traveling to certain locations. So when it is cold, most people head 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. You may not get the ideal weather, but you'll usually get better prices and be there when it is not flocked by out of towners.
If the price is right, pick it!
Airline carriers change their rates by the hour sometimes. If you see the price you like, then grab it! You're not the only one waiting an awesome bargain on a flight from Fresno to Chicago. You could miss out on your chance to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
