The best time to buy a flight is coming up.
August 23 is the date when flights are said to drop by 15 to 23 percent, according to an article on Fox News.
“Go ahead and start shopping now, just make sure your travel itinerary begins on Aug. 23 or later,” writes Rick Seaney. “What will that get you? An average price drop from 15 to 20 percent depending on where you’re traveling from and where you’re going. Some could see more savings, some less, but nearly everyone will see something a little easier on the wallet.”
The reason for the price decline? When the kids go back to school, demand for flights drops sharply, and, if you are willing to wait a little longer for your trip—say into October—you will enjoy even more savings.
This particular savings period is good through mid to late October when many prices dip a little more.
