The Best Time to Book Flights
If You’re Traveling to a Popular Location in the High Season
Disney World during summer break. Aspen during ski season. Anywhere warm during the winter. When you’re trying to go somewhere
at a popular time, buy tickets well in advance.
When to buy: One to three months in advance—preferably three.
Bonus tip: Prices will be lowest if you avoid the usual Friday to Sunday weekend cycle. If you’re going for a weekend, try using the “weekend trip” option under the “flexible trip” search on most web resources like Kayak. This lets you define weekend however you want, whether Friday to Sunday or Saturday to Monday, so you can find the cheapest options.
