Cheapest Airline Tickets on Weekends

90H-300x200According to a study from Texas A&M University (whoop!), the best time to buy a plane ticket is on the weekends. Tuesdays have long been thought to be the best day – you can find literally hundreds of reports online that say Tuesday. Experts and researchers at Texas A&M say, “we couldn’t find any systematic analysis to back that up.” Instead, the report says the weekend is the best time for the best prices.

It’s the best time to book airline tickets because airlines are more likely to discount fares on Saturday and Sunday. -Texas A&M University study

The report also takes a look at business and pleasure travel – the airlines count on business travelers booking flights on weekdays and raise the prices during that time period. People who travel for pleasure tend to book those tickets on the weekend and are looking for deals. Planning a trip? Check the prices this weekend.
