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.

Spending the weekend at your destination, like Raleigh, usually means a less-expensive ticket since most people fly during this time. We are all for that!
What are shoulder seasons?
Have good weather, will travel. Summertime is when Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are at their most popular. 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. Flying during less popular periods can mean extra money in your wallet -- yes, please!
