3   Save nearly $80 (or more) flying cheaper days


On U.S. domestic flights, the cheapest days to fly are usually Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, and the cheapest for international flights typically tend to be midweek dates (Note: these are estimates and are subject to change). For domestic travel, the most expensive flights are usually Friday and Sunday.  For international travel, weekends and Sundays are higher.

Moral: You may save more or less depending on the route and other variables.



4    Save $120 (or more) by flying from cheaper airports

Save on airfare by comparing airports in the same area. The cheapest airfares may come from a different airport in the same area; for example, LAX serving greater Los Angeles and the smaller Burbank airport. You can find cheaper fares by sometimes using an alternate airport if you have that option.


5    Save $300 (or more) by adding a stop to the flight

There is value in convenience, and also savings if you are flexible. Flights that fly non-stop are typically going to be more than a flight that has a stop. Popular routes are non-stop and airlines know this, and we pay more. If you can endure the inconvenience of a longer travel day, you might save a lot of money.  Ask your travel team agent to find the right flight for you by calling 1-800-788-0829.
