How can you get a great rate on tickets from DSM to FLL?
We've been doing this for years, which means getting that great deal on a Fort Lauderdale flight is easy-peasy. You'll make spending less look so very good with a few simple tips and tricks.
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 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 DSM can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less elastic schedules, so that means more savings for you. We're all for that!
Can you save while traveling during the off-peak season?
Off-peak and shoulder seasons are when most vacationers aren't going to certain locations. So when it's cold, most people head off 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 really popular. If you want lower airfare and avoid the crowds, travel when everyone else isn't.
Jump on that great rate
Airline carriers change their rates seemingly by the minute. If a price you want pops up, then grab it! You're not the only flier waiting a good price on a ticket from Des Moines to Fort Lauderdale. You might miss your opportunity to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
