Holiday Travel Booking Tips

Are you looking to find an affordable airfare for the Christmas holidays? It’s all about finding the best day ahead of time to book your flight.


The latest data from Google suggests that ticket prices tend to be lowest 71 days before departure.


Last year, the lowest prices were 22 days before departure.


So the target date for getting the best fares is October 12th, if you want to fly on the Friday before Christmas, and October 15th if you want to fly on December 25th itself.

Lower fares also happen if you extend your return until after January 4th.
