Travel Tip #61 – Buy On Tuesday
The price of airline tickets can vary greatly day by day during the week and there are some helpful tips and tricks to make sure you get the best deal. Buying a ticket on a Tuesday, no matter the day of the week you travel, can save you a good chuck of change. Since major airlines post their deals on Monday, it forces their smaller competitors to lower their tickets by Tuesday morning helping us all to save some money.
It is also much cheaper to fly during the week instead of the weekends so if you can extend that business trip until Monday or you can’t stand your mother in law one more day and have to fly home on a Thursday, you might be able to save money in the long run.
TIP: Make sure to double check your airlines checked baggage fee as these days some even charge up to $50US for only one bag. A ticket might look like a great deal until you factor in the extra charge to bring your clothes with you!
