Holiday Travel: When to Fly?

Some airlines are starting to offer sales ahead of the holiday season. When booking your tickets, you might wonder which days to book your trip for in order to save the most cash.

Travelzoo has crunched the numbers and has determined that if you need to fly, you’ll have the best luck on these dates:

For Thanksgiving:
Wednesday, November 17th or Thursday, November 18th
Sunday, November 21st
Thursday, November 25th (Thanksgiving Day) or Friday November 26th (Black Friday)
Wednesday, December 1st or Thursday, December 2nd

Hint: Want to duck out of that crazy holiday party early? “Sorry mom, airfare is cheaper if I leave as soon as Thanksgiving dinner is over” is always a good one.

For Christmas:
Tuesday, December 14th
Saturday, December 25th (Christmas Day)
Tuesday, December 28th
Tuesday, January 4th or Wednesday, January 5th

Hint: If your company is one of those lucky ones that shuts down over the gap between Christmas and New Year’s, consider padding it with some vacation time and spend some extra time with your family, or away from them if that’s how you roll.

There's so much world out there and I hope you'll find that it's worth seeing and that vacation doesn't have to be out of reach to you.
