  • Christmas tickets???

    I have been looking at tickets to go a yard around Christmas. Obviously they are not cheap. A young coworker from Jamaica keeps saying the prices will be better in September. I know that in Oct & Nov they will be out of reach.

    Any thoughts or advice?

    Cheapest Days to Fly and Best Time to Buy Airline Tickets
    Rick Seaney•July 5, 2011


    Shopping for air travel can be both confusing and frustrating — airline ticket prices change frequently (with seemingly no particular rhyme or reason).

    Let’s face it — your time is too valuable to be laboring over a computer screen for hours searching for a great deal — our company mission is to take the mystery out of shopping for cheap flights, so let’s get started.

    We have boiled down hundreds of our tips from a decade of airfare research specifically to educate fliers on how to make the best ticket purchasing decisions for each and every trip (checkout the video and the air travel insider tips below):

    Cheapest Day to Fly – Wednesday

    We did an in-depth study of our proprietary historical airfare database (world’s largest) and pinpointed the cheapest day to fly is Wednesday for domestic travel (gory details at the link).

    Wednesday is one of the three cheapest days, the others are Tuesday and Saturday (Friday and Sunday the most expensive days to travel). The cheapest day to travel internationally are a bit different — we are working on this research and it should be up shortly.

    The cheapest time to fly is typically the first flight out in the morning – yes, that means you have to get up at 4am. Next best times are flights during/after lunch and flights at the dinner hour (of course the absolute cheapest time to fly is on those limited routes with red eyes).

    Best Time to Buy Airline Tickets – Tuesday 3pm Eastern

    Another of our studies shows that the best time to buy airline tickets and shop for travel (domestically) is Tuesday at 3pm Eastern – yes shopping on Tuesday is the the best time to buy airline tickets, but be careful as most of these discounted airfare are pulled on Thursdays, so your probably paying too much if buying on the weekends.

      I bought mine last month. I usually buy it in the August time frame but over the last few years I have seen the earlier the better. I need to go look and see if it has gone up from what I paid last month.

        It went up $20 per person from yesterday. CRAP!

        I would like to buy tickets next week. But if they go up again I may be out of luck.

              Did you find it to be a lot cheaper in June than August?
