Mastering the best periods to buy airline tickets could be your solution to paying less for flights. The tips below will guide your search for cheap flights and the best times to fly.

  • Shop early; airlines start offering cheaper seats about 4 months before departure (5 months for international flights).
  • Keep checking constantly; prices change up to 3times daily with the cheapest fares usually found at midnight and in the early morning.
  • Save on 150% flight fare increase when you book at least a month early and pay with Pay Small Small.
  • Sign up for e-mail newsletters on Wakanow.com; this will keep you informed of whenever there is a flight promo so you can book immediately before it becomes unavailable.
  • Sunday is usually the most expensive time to fly. Book cheap flights within the week for the best fares.
  • Book holiday tickets as soon as you see them. These are usually limited so dilly-dallying might cost you that dream vacation.
  • Prices rise quickly on the week of departure and you can pay as much as 40% more if you book on your departure date.
  • More discount ticket sales are offered early in the week.
  • Don’t aim for the least expensive seats on the plane as this might be quickly snatched up by other passengers if you don’t pay immediately. Go for below the average seats and you will usually win.
