Hello again Health777,

To obtain the lowest fares, you should make your reservations way in
advance, fly on a Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday and consider an
airport in a surrounding area.

Make your reservation early.

?Many discount fares require that you make a reservation 7, 14 or 21
days in advance, depending on the fare. The best international fares
often require a reservation 30 days in advance. Making a reservation
as soon as you know your travel dates increases your chances of
finding a great fare.? ? ?Airlines sell only a limited number of seats
at the lowest fares. When those seats sell out, the price goes up!?


Flying on a weekday usually costs less.

?Flights departing on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday usually offer
the lowest fares. Fares are sometimes (but not always) higher on
Monday and Friday than on other weekdays. Saturday flights
occasionally have discount fares, but as a rule it's more expensive to
fly on a weekend than a weekday.?
 

Consider an airport in the surrounding area.

?You may enjoy significant savings if you are willing to fly into
nearby airports. For example, when traveling to Los Angeles (LAX), you
may want to consider flying into the Burbank (BUR), Orange County
(SNA) or Ontario (ONT) airports.?
 

Try an earlier or later travel date.

?To get the lowest roundtrip fare, the same fare must be available on
both the departing and return flights you select. If the fare is sold
out on either of these, the price you end up with will be much higher.
If possible, consider flying on another date.?
