The Best Time to Get Airline Tickets for Summer Holidays

It’s time to start thinking about Summer Vacation! Will you be booking a trip for any of these summer holidays?

Memorial Day: Expedia Travel Analysts’ suggest buying this month or in April. Last year’s average ticket prices for flights were around $400, driven primarily by the high demand for travel last minute (tickets sold more than 24 days in advance of departure were, on average, below $400.

Fourth of July: It’s generally “more difficult” to find great deals on flights for this holiday. The 2012 average ticket prices for the 4th were around $422 per ticket. They say to plan ahead 5 to 6 weeks out. Start looking at ticket prices in early May.

Labor Day: This holiday generally has lower demand because people have already gone on their summer vacations by then. So it’s easier to find a deal. Average ticket prices hovered around $371 in 2012. Again, aim to book five -to-six weeks out.
