Best Time of Day to Book Flights!

Ever wondered if you were really getting the best deal by using some of the online travel site to book your flight?

Just a short tip with this blog post, but it can be valuable!

The best times to book flights online are at 2PM, 4:30PM, and midnight. Why? Those are the most common times that the best deals will be uploaded to the travel sites.

What days should you look for flights? While there is always some debate about this, the consensus is that Wednesday is the best, followed by Tuesday. At all costs, avoid booking flights on the weekends! The demand increases (that's when many others also are booking their flights) and they will be charging more!

If you can, also schedule your departure for Saturday morning rather than Friday night. The airport will be much less crowder, the odds of cancellation are much smaller, and even if you do, you don't have to wait until the next day to get onto another flight.
