For Cheapest Vacation Flights, Don’t Fly on Weekends

cheap vacation flights weekends

This is becoming a standard restriction for new airfare sales – the cheap flights advertised are available only during certain weekdays or on Saturdays. And this is true just about any time you purchase airfare.

The reason? Airlines know that everyone wants to stretch out their vacation time by flying weekend to weekend – and they make you pay for that convenience.

Generally, the worst days to fly are Friday and/or Sunday (as my editor found out to her sorrow). Here’s a tip: if you must fly one of those days, try to make the other date a Tuesday or Wednesday, and you’ll at least net some savings.
