No matter where you go, airfare represents a big chunk of your travel budget. Here’s how to find the best deals on fall flights.
Avoid High Season
Travelling in fall already gives you an advantage in flight prices, because it is not high season for travel. Shoulder season, between high and low in September through October, and low season November through March (excluding holidays like Christmas).
Travel Midweek and at Off Times for Lower Prices
Many people have to wait until the weekend to travel, and the airlines know this, and hike prices accordingly. Early morning and late evening flights are the last to book up because the timings of the flight are less desirable.
