Richmond (RIC) to Detroit (DTT)

What did you say?! A trip to Detroit! You will definitely need a ticket to Detroit then. Well, unless you'd rather walk. And although we agree walking is great exercise, you probably want to get there before the end of the year. Fortunately, you found us. Hotwire can get you a great rate on your next flight from RIC to DTT.

How do you get the best deal on a ticket from Richmond to Detroit?

We've been doing this for a long time, which means getting that great deal on a Detroit 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 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.

Can staying the weekend get me a cheaper ticket?

If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to RIC can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less flexible itineraries, so that means more savings for you. We are all for that!

What are shoulder seasons?

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

If the price is right, pick it!

Unsurprisingly, you're not the only person looking for a stellar bargain on a flight from Richmond to Detroit. You could miss your chance to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
