Are you flying to Chicago for a much-needed vacation or is it about time for you to have a family reunion? Or maybe you're traveling for work? Hey, anything that gets you away from that desk is a win in our books. You're on the perfect page to snatch a killer deal on your next flight from Columbus. Whether you are an expert at navigating the friendly skies or you're new to the jet-setting scene, read on to see how to book a too-good-to-be-true flight.

How do you get the best deal on a flight from CMH to CHI?

We've been doing this for a long time, so we know a few ways to snag the best rate on your flight to Chicago. You'll make spending less look so very good with a little know-how.

Which days of the week are cheapest to fly?

With the right attitude and flexibility, you can fly for less. Below are the cheapest days to fly:

  • Tuesday and Wednesday—You know how most stores are not crowded midweek? Same thing here. Most people opt to depart at the beginning or end of the week.
  • Thursday and Saturday—Get a head start on that Friday crowd. This also works on your return flight. Shorten your vacay by a day and increase your savings.
  • Monday through Thursday—If you're flying internationally, deals are often available when departing these days.

Why are flights cheaper if you stay over the weekend?

If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to CMH 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. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.

Can you save while traveling during the off-peak season?

Off-peak and shoulder seasons are when most people aren't flying to certain locations. So when it is cold, most people head to warmer places like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like the birds (they had it figured out). But in the summer, you'll find that Europe is really popular. You may not get the ideal weather, but you'll usually get better prices and avoid the crowds.

If the price is right, pick it!

Unsurprisingly, you're not the only flier longing for a great deal on a flight from Columbus to Chicago. You might miss out on your chance to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
