January Is A Great Month To Buy An Airline Ticket

January 14, 2019

Perhaps one of your bucket list items for 2019 is to travel more.  The good news is right now is probably the cheapest time of the year to buy airplane tickets. According to historic flight data, the best time to book flights for domestic trips is 2-3 weeks in advance, and the best time to book international journeys is 5-6 months in advance. In general, the cheapest month to book those plane tickets is January, followed by February and August. But the time your book a flight can save you money too!  According to the travel site Skyscanner, which gathered all this historical data, you should avoid booking flights between 7-10pm. Set an alarm early as they say booking a flight at 5am has the highest potential for flight savings! While tradition says to purchase tickets on a Tuesday, Skyscanner says that if you book on a Sunday you will potentially save the most for both domestic and international flights. Getting up at 5am on a Sunday sounds pretty brutal, but it might be worth it.
