Choosing the right time to book a cheap flight Plane tickets cost may change in a matter of minutes as they are influenced by many different factors, such as the cost of fuel, supply, and demand. In this brief period of time, the flight pricing can be modified and previous prices can rocket or decrease dramatically. As a rule of thumb, the best way to get a cheap flight has always been to anticipate the booking as much as possible so you can increase your options based on flight availability. This is also valid when booking your accommodation so you should always consider purchasing both your flight and hotel as soon as you can in order to get the cheapest fares. Be smart and save that money for any other type of onsite activity. In case you are flexible and can choose any date for your holidays, it is also important to avoid public holidays and school vacations as prices tend to be much more expensive on these dates. Another useful flight pattern to remark is that weekend flights (Fri. to Sun.) are usually more expensive than weekday flights.
According to our flight pricing data, there is another interesting fact related to cheap last-minute plane tickets. Although, generally, the more in advance the better, in some particular cases you can get a better deal the further you travel. If we analyze price against distance, in last-minute long-haul flights there is much better value for money. This means that you don't need to be reluctant to embrace your impulsive side, sometimes booking a spontaneous last-minute flight somewhere distant may result in a cheaper flight than if you'd booked the same journey well in advance.
