Consider flying out early in the week to save on your airfare. Orbitz data from 2019 shows that Tuesday is the cheapest day to depart, followed by Monday. Saturday showed the highest average ticket prices likely because many travelers prefer to start their vacation on a weekend.
We won't keep you guessing, according to Orbitz data the cheapest month to fly is February. Perfect for those who need a weekend getaway, or just a fresh start to the new year. Be aware that the most expensive time to fly isn't the height of summer, as most people assume, but the festive month of December.
To really save big on your next vacation, think outside the box. Select two different airlines or fare types for your return trip and you'll generally get a much better deal. Those who tried this on Orbitz in 2019 saved over 50% on their airfares. Get mixing and matching today!
