The Best Day And Time To Buy Your Airline Tickets

I was watching 📺 television a while ago and a short segment on {Travel Specials} appeared. The segment was on when the Best Day and Time to …

✈ Buy Airline Tickets ✈

is, in order to secure the lowest prices. One of our local high profile professional travel agents at home here in 🍁 Canada, was talking about this subject.

It appears that not only is there a {📅 Best Day} to buy your tickets, but also a {⏰ Best Time} of day as well. It made me realize that a lot of people may not be aware of this, so I thought I would pass the information on to you. After doing some more research on this subject, I did discover that …

Yes, there are {Good and Bad} days to book your plane tickets.

Choosing the right day can save you a lot of 💰 money. First, have a look at this short but informative 📹 video from one of my favorite travel experts, on ways to save on travel.

I already knew that flying on a certain weekday, is definitely cheaper than other days of the week. But did you know that weekends also can be cheaper? ❓

There’s a great reduction in 💼 Business travel on weekends, so airlines will tend to lower their prices to fill those 💺 seats.

Tuesday Is Still A Good Day To Buy Airline Tickets

This is especially true, if you are booking a domestic flight, or travel within the same country in which you are living in.

Travel experts say that not only is; 📅 Tuesday the best day to book your tickets, but right after midnight as well.

From what we just learned from the video above from a leading travel expert, is that for the absolute {best time} for cheap 🎫 tickets, you should …

☎ Call at 12:01 Wednesday Morning!

Call Just After Midnight On Tuesday Evening

Airline Tickets
❓ Why should I call after midnight you ask ❓

Well, 💺 seat selection is usually plentiful early in the week and therefore, prices should be at their lowest.

Should you choose to book your tickets 💻 online, try to book your flight at least 3 weeks before the date of departure. Also, expert suggest you ☎ call the airlines, rather than book online. 

Airlines do not always post what is actually available at that time. Hmmm … Every time I’ve called the airlines directly, they keep telling me; what I see online is what they are seeing as well! 🤨

A great way to keep informed is by subscribing to your favorite airlines 📧 email newsletters, or airline watchdogs as I do.

Stay Informed With Airlines Newsletters

Subscribing to newsletters of your choice can be very helpful and can save you a lot of money, when booking any form of travel. Of course, it’s great if you are flexible with your travel days.

Many of the major airlines will generally post prices for individual days before and after your selected travel date. This often gives you more choices for specific flight times and substantial price savings as well.

Simply by choosing a different travel date!

Take a look at a couple of your favorite airlines on their website. I am sure you’ll soon discover that Tuesday and Wednesday travel can be cheaper than other days of the week.

Doing further research of websites and airlines, you can get cheaper flights on {Saturdays} as well, at specific times. There are other factors as well, that will help you receive reduced airfares. Some of these include;

✔ Departure times;
✔ Direct flights, with one or more stops.

Below, is another article published online, regarding the best day to book flights.

Don’t Book Flights On Friday

Booking Air Travel


Air Travel Data collected has revealed that weekends, offered some best deals for flights.

I’m sure most of us and especially those who love to travel, have certainly noticed prices have increased dramatically, now that international travel has opened up once again.

Fuel prices, staff shortages and with airlines now reducing the number of flights, has created less opportunities for travelers to fill cheaper seats. Last minute cancellations, overbooking and other annoying disruptions within the airline industry, have made finding air travel bargains all the more difficult at this time.

It seems that you need to book your reservations as early as possible now, in order to secure the best possible price for your flight. As the article concludes;

“When you find a bargain, don’t wait – book it!”

Book Red Eye Flights For Cheaper Airline Fares

Airline Tickets

❓ Are you willing to take a dreaded “red eye” flight ❓

Then you should expect to get cheaper fares when booking tickets. Although it’s not all that pleasant staying up all night. This may be an option for you when booking a flight, to help save money.

In many cases however, as we experienced on our international flight to; Vietnam from Canada a few seasons back, you really don’t have a choice when to fly to certain destinations anyway.

I found this quote from a (wholesale airline ticket business) online. This business has always offered consistent and reliable travel information. They also confirm that; 📆 {Tuesday}, really is a good day to book your airline tickets.

“When should I buy my airline ticket?”❓

Based on years of complex analysis, FareCompare has the answer;

Book At 3 pm On Tuesdays – For Domestic Travel

“Generally, the cheapest time to buy airfare is 📅 four to six weeks before your departure date, and that’s because airlines have no real incentive to offer discounts before that.”

My wife and I booked our dream vacation to 🦒 Tanzania & 🏖 Zanzibar in Africa that departed in September 2023. We booked these international flights more than 6 months in advance and reservations were filling fast at that time.

We were flexible on our dates and did save a huge amount of money, in comparison to other available days.
