How to Find a Cheap Flight - Top Tips

How to Find a Cheap Flight

Airlines generally release tickets 11 months in advance. Start researching once you know you are taking a trip and continue to check them at least once per week.
Air fares fluctuate constantly. You can’t predict as supply and demand are out of our control (just like the stock market).
Have a price YOU are comfortable paying. You can play the game of watching and waiting forever, which can reward you, but it can also frustrate and cost you.
Be ready to act as soon as the price you are happy with is available. You’ll be satisfied and won’t have regrets.

When is the Best Time to Buy Your Ticket?

There really is no hard and fast rule. However, there are some general trends to be aware of.
Be mindful of when you are traveling. Peak season and holiday weekends will have the most demand for flights, so expect higher prices.
You can, however, stack the odds in your favour by buying your flight ticket at a certain time.
A study by 7skiesholidays.com, who analyzed 560 million flight searches, found an optimal time to buy was on average 7 weeks in advance (for domestic flights). Others have suggested a sweet spot of between 3-7 weeks in advance. The WORST time was within 14 days of flying, or too far in advance, more than 5 months.
For international flights, Cheap Air found the sweet spot is 11-12 weeks prior to departure.
As for which day of the week to buy on, they suggest no particular day was better than the other and buying on a Tuesday and Wednesday was somewhat of an urban legend.
If you want some price guidance, consider an airfare prediction tool such as Bing’s Farecast.

What Day is Best to Fly?

It might not matter when you buy your tickets, but cheaper flights can be found depending on the day you choose to fly.
The consensus is that it’s best to FLY OUT on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday. These are typical off-peak days usually meaning lower fares and less passengers. You also have a better chance of grabbing frequent flyer seats. Fridays and Sundays are usually the most expensive days to fly.

Be Flexible with Your Dates

The best tactic to save money on flights is to be FLEXIBLE with your travel dates. Give yourself the best chance by searching a couple of days, or even weeks, either side of your preferred departure date.
If you are locked into exact dates, it will be more challenging to get a better deal.

Adjust Your Times for Flying

Flying at unpopular hours, such as the red-eye or early in the AM instead of late morning through afternoon, increases your chance of getting cheaper tickets.

Consider Round Trip Tickets

Even if you are only flying one way, sometimes they are so expensive that the round trip ticket is actually cheaper. Just forfeit the return leg portion. We have done this from Sydney to LA. Crazy, but it happens.
