We all usually book our tickets a week before travelling. But did you know there’s a time when you should buy your tickets to get less airfare. Yes!
The best time to buy a ticket is 54 days before you travel. According to a study by cheapair.com, it crunched 921 million airfares from 2.9 million trips. It found that the price of a fight typically changes every 4.5 days. And prices go up and down by as much as $33.
The study also said that it doesn’t really matter which day of the week you buy your tickets, the prices generally shift by less than $2 day by day. You’ll pay less if you fly Tuesdays and Wednesdays., whereas Sunday is the most expensive day to fly where you will pay about $73 more than the usual.
