How do you get the best deal on a flight from SJC to WAS?
We've been doing this for a long time, which means getting that great deal on a Washington flight is easy-peasy. You can pocket that extra cash for more than just getting from point A to point B with a little know-how.
What is the cheapest day to fly?
Going with the flow can pay dividends when it comes to getting an affordable flight. Tuesday and Wednesday typically have the best rates. Next in line are Thursday and, surprisingly, Saturday. Most like to fly back on Sunday so you can save by leaving a day earlier.
What's the Saturday night stay rule?
Spending the weekend at your destination, like Washington, usually means lower airfare since most people fly during this time. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.
Why travel during the off-peak season?
There's good reason that many people travel during certain times of the year -- they want to enjoy incredible weather. For example, Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are big hits in the summer. During spring, New Orleans, Florida, and California open their arms to tourists. Winter is prime for Mexico and the Caribbean because of its warm weather, as well as ski and snowboard destinations like the Colorado Rockies. Who doesn't love that harvest of autumn colors? The Pacific Northwest, Northern California, and New England are popular this time of the year. If you can plan your trip around these peak seasons, you'll not only save money, but you'll typically avoid the crowds. Win-win in our books.
Is that the lowest price?
Unsurprisingly, you're not the only traveler seeking a good bargain on a flight from San Francisco to Washington. You might miss your chance to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
