    What is the best time to shop for Flights?

    In relation to flight dates, there are two approaches. If you want the lowest generally-available fare, shop more than two weeks before flight date, and further ahead (4 weeks or more) for holidays.

    If you want to risk paying a lot, but maybe saving a lot, then wait until the last minute. For example, JetBlue sends out a special deals email once a month, and if the deals are going where you want to go, you can save a lot.

    It also helps to avoid the very peak days - for example, if you can take off the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, fly out Tuesday night. And if you can include a Saturday away, you will save some money, as airlines figure weekday travel is likely to be on a corporate account, and charge more.

    Look for flights that is few weeks or months ahead of the planned date. I usually get the cheapest I book ahead of time and hunt for seat sales. And avoid holidays!
