Want to travel this year and score great deals but don’t know when to book?????I don’t blame you!
Especially knowing the average economy fare ticket changes a total of 61 times before a trip!????But there’s hope, CheapAir.com has released its annual airfare study so that you know the when it is best to book flights in 2019.????CheapAir.com recommends to those who have flight preferences, such as a certain flight time or seat, to book between 10 to 6 and a half months in advance.
Prices will be around $50 more expensive than when they hit their most affordable point.????For those looking to get some peace of mind surrounding a big airfare purchase, its best to book 6 and half months to four months prior to the trip.
You’’ll likely pay just about $20 more than flights in the Prime Booking Window, but that’s a cheap price for your peace of mind.????Now for the win!
Data shows that the lowest airfares tend to pop up about 4 months to 3 weeks in advance of your travel dates.????If you book 3 to 2 weeks in advance you are “pushing your luck” but you could get lucky.????Booking 13 to 7 days before is what CheapAir.com calls “playing with fire”, you’ll almost always pay more than Prime Booking Window buyers, but pay less than those in the quote “Hail Mary” category.????Those are 6 to 0 days in advance people, who will probably pay around $220 more than if they had bought a flight during the Prime Booking Window.????
To them we say, ouch and bon voyage!??
