What is the best day to buy airline tickets?
The best time to book your plane tickets is no longer on a Tuesday
- The cheapest day to buy airline tickets is now on Sundays rather than Tuesdays.
- To save even more money, book your flight on a Sunday that’s at least three weeks in advance of your trip.
Do flight prices go down?
When in doubt, booking earlier is safer. If you wait, fares could go up or down, and usually fares go up by more than they go down (read: going down $50 vs. going up by $300). Only bide your time if your flight isn’t too full and you know the price is a lot higher than it should be.
