Frequent travelers may already know this, but earlier in the week can be the cheapest time to fly. In 2019, flights departing on a Tuesday were generally the cheapest of the week, whereas you may pay a premium for weekend flights when demand is usually high. On average, tickets were most expensive for Saturday departures, so if you need to fly out on a weekend, you might look for deals ahead of time.

However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 1-2 weeks prior to their travel dates.
We'll let you in on a secret...You can save big on flights if you mix and match your airlines and fare types. In fact, travelers who booked flights on Travelocity in 2019 saved nearly 50% when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.
