What is the cheapest day to fly?
It pays to be a weekday warrior. Tuesday and Wednesday typically have the best rates. Next in line are Thursday and, surprisingly, Saturday. Most like to come back from their trip on Sunday so you can save by leaving a day earlier.
Why are flights cheaper if you stay over the weekend?

What are shoulder seasons?
Off-peak and shoulder seasons are when most vacationers aren't traveling to certain locations. So when it is chilly, most people head to warmer climates like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like the birds (they had it figured out). But during the summer, you'll find that Europe is where it's at. You may not get the ideal weather, but you'll generally get better prices and be there when it is not flocked by out of towners.
