- Fly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays – As Noemi pointed out in her comment there are days when airlines as a general rule how to save money on car repairs offer cheaper fares. Tuesdays and Wednesdays happen to be those days except when holidays happen to fall on those days or right before/after those days. Mondays and Fridays are usually the most expensive days to fly since airlines are taking advantage of the fact that people of course want to make the most of the weekend and thus leave late Friday and need to go back to work by Monday morning and thus arrive by early Monday.
- Book a flight
to a different airport– If you are going some place during a holiday that is really popular among tourists do not be surprised to find it virtually impossible to find cheap tickets. What you can do is look for flight to airports located in adjacent towns/cities. You will need to travel by road a bit longer to get to your final destination but it’ll be worth the amount you save on your airfare. In the meantime, if you have no real plan, you can even start you vacation by touring that nearby town!
- Buy roundtrip tickets – Although you won’t save much on round trip tickets (there aren’t discounts for roundtrip tickets unless you chance upon a promo) you can still save on time and energy by booking a flight on the same airline.
