Timing Is Everything
When booking flights for holiday travel, it's always best to book at least 14 days in advance to get the best price. Mathias Friess of Webjet.com recommends purchasing flights on Wednesdays. "Historically, flights are cheaper on a Wednesday because throughout the beginning of the week, the airlines are competing to have the lowest fares," he said. "By Wednesday, they've hit their rock bottom and begin to increase prices again."
