  • Make sure you know the whereabouts of your boarding pass and passport. You don’t want to hold up the line when you’re asked to produce them.
  • Remove your shoes, belt and jewellery before approaching the security checkpoint. Items like these are not permitted in the body scanner.
  • Electronics such as tablets, laptops and phones are always put through the X-ray machine separately. Make sure they’re easily accessible.
  • Traveling with a new perfume or cologne? As long as it’s no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear resealable plastic bag, you can keep it with you in your carry-on luggage.
  • Loosen your shoelaces as you approach the body scanner. Depending on the sort of shoes you’re wearing, security may tell you to remove them.
  • Scissors and multi-tools are not allowed on board the plane. Tuck them away in your checked luggage to avoid them being confiscated at the airport security checkpoint.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.
