Hello everybody, the holiday periods has arrived again and for those that are making some travel plans to visit family and friends for Thanksgiving, according to experts this is the right time to book that flight and get up to 30 percent if booking this weekend.

 

2017 seems to be a record year for holiday travel and that means there will be high demands for airlines seats says Skyler Mckinley with AAA.

 

Mckinley says, “The new rule for buying for these peak travel periods is 60 to 70 days which means right about now is the best time to book the best deal for your Thanksgiving.”

 

A normal way to save extra money is looking for a smaller airport close to your destination for cheaper deals says McKinley.

 

For all major airline and airport there are smaller ones nearby that have different options of flights to select from. At times it comes out not being the exact flight you looking for but shop around for airports and certainly shop around for airlines.

 

Another thing to consider is traveling on Monday and Thursdays of Thanksgiving week will save you money compared to flying Wednesday.

 

The most efficient way to save money is to fly in on Thanksgiving and fly out on Thanksgiving. You will be saving 30 percent, but no one wants to do that, right? Mckinley says. So, generally speaking, the rule of thumb is definitely to avoid the Sunday after Thanksgiving. That’s the busiest travel day of the entire period and at the same time going to be the most expensive.

 

Just in case you are not ready to purchase the tickets yet for one reason or the other, experts say you have until Halloween to get it together.

 

During the period of the week of Halloween, or after that prices really begin to spike up dramatically, but, again, day after prices are going to be going up, says Mckinley.

 

Waiting much is not advisable because if you wait until early November to book your flight, it will cost you about a dollar per each day you wait.

 

Mckinley finally quotes, “people we know are going to be traveling this holiday period, so in order to make sure you book that ticket at the price you really want you need to book now because there’s just not going to be a last minute , or Oh we’ve got an extra seat, because everybody’s traveling.”
