More people are planning to travel for the holidays this year, now that they’re vaccinated. So when’s the best time to book your flight? The travel app “Hopper” uses an algorithm that looks at travel trends and prices from other years. And it found that today is the best day to buy your tickets. This week is a good time to book flights in general, especially for Christmas. But tickets might be slightly more expensive by Friday than they are today.
If you’re not ready to book yet, they say prices probably won’t skyrocket until late October. Once we hit November, prices for flights around US Thanksgiving will spike 40%. And the same thing happens in the last few weeks before Christmas. Flights for Christmas are expected to be 10% more expensive than they were in 2019. Flights on Christmas Eve tend to be cheaper than other days. But Tuesday the 21st is also good.
