If you’re planning on traveling for the holidays, your deadline to book the airfare is fast approaching. You might be waiting for better deals but flight tracking website, Hopper, says the lowest prices for your destination are probably available right now.
If you’re flying somewhere for Thanksgiving, you should purchase flight tickets by Halloween. Domestic fares are expected to spike by $100 after that. If you book last minute, you can expect to pay an average of $500 for a domestic round trip. Wondering when to fly? Hopper says the cheapest time to depart on domestic flights before Thanksgiving Day is Monday, Nov. 22.
Traveling for Christmas will be more expensive. Hopper recommends booking your Christmas travel no later than Thanksgiving. After that, prices are expected to go up throughout the month of December. Booking last minute will really cost you: prices in the final week before Christmas are expected to average $510. Wondering when to fly? Tuesday, Dec. 21 is the cheapest day to depart on domestic flights before Christmas Eve.
