How do I get the best price on my flight from PHX to CHI?
We've been doing this for a long time, so we know a few ways to snag the best price on your flight to Chicago. You can pocket that extra cash for more than just getting from point A to point B with a few simple steps.
What is the best day of the week to book a flight?
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 holiday 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?
Staying the weekend at your destination, like Chicago, usually means lower airfare since most people fly during this time. Of course, we don't want to twist your rubber arm or anything.
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 months, you'll find that Europe is where it's at. If you want lower airfare and avoid the crowds, travel when everyone else isn't.
If the price is right, pick it!
Airlines change their rates often. If a price you love pops up, then book it. There are a lot of others that are searching for an amazing price on a flight from Phoenix to Chicago. You could miss your opportunity to get the carrier and the schedule you need.
