Best Day to book your flight
Book on Sundays: Sunday is, on average, the cheapest day to book your flight. The average ticket price on a Sunday is 25% lower than on any other day of the week. For international flights, the savings potential is almost 10%. So next time you’re planning to fly, it might be worth it to take some time out of your weekend to purchase your plane tickets.
Make sure to book early! Book at least 30 days before departure to save on average 20%. Even more savings can be had if you book 3 months in advance.
