With inflation at an all-time high, many people are looking for new innovative ways to reduce their spending this holiday season. With airlines noting that the high demand will lead prices for tickets to rise, many are looking to book their tickets as swiftly as possible to save some money. If you want to increase your savings during this holiday season then the best thing you can do is focus on the tip below.

Flexible travel dates

Being able to choose your travel dates based on the dates that have the best prices is guaranteed to help you save some money. In general Weekend days tend to be more expensive to fly, as many people try to maximize the holiday days they have available.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, for Thanksgiving, the busiest flight dates are Tuesday and Wednesday. This is because last-minute travelers who don’t have many days off work will choose those days to fly to their homes. Other popular dates around Thanksgiving include Thursday and Friday, the week before the holiday.

Naturally, the Sunday after Thanksgiving is also an incredibly busy travel date as many people will choose it to get to their homes as late as possible after the holiday.

Flying on the actual day of a holiday can also lead to decreased spending. According to NerdWallet, a nonstop one-way flight from New York to Paris on December 22 or 23, can range from $868 to $910. Those same flights can cost around $482 to $563 if taken on December 24 or 25.

This is why flying with flexible dates can allow you to choose these cheaper flights and save a lot of money on traveling.
