How can you get a great rate on tickets from Boston to Washington?
Hotwire has been doing this for years, so we know a couple ways to snag the best price on your flight to Washington. You'll make spending less look so very good with a little know-how.
What is the best day of the week to book a flight?
Going with the flow can pay dividends when it comes to getting an affordable flight. Our dear friends, Tuesday and Wednesday, typically have the best rates. Next in line are Thursday and, surprisingly, Saturday. Most like to come back on Sunday so you can save by leaving a day earlier.
Can staying the weekend get me a cheaper ticket?
If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to BOS can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less flexible itineraries, so that means more savings for you. Of course, we don't want to twist your rubber arm or anything.
Can you save while traveling during the off-peak season?
Shoulder or off-peak seasons are when most people aren't traveling to certain locations. So when it's chilly, most people head off to warmer places like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like the birds (they had it figured out). But during the summer months, you'll find that Europe is where it's at. You may not get the ideal weather, but you'll typically get better rates and avoid the mobs of tourist.
Is that the lowest price?
Unsurprisingly, you're not the only person searching for a terrific rate on a flight from Boston to Washington. You may miss out on your opportunity to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
