How do you get the best deal on a flight from SJC to DTT?

Hotwire has been doing this for a long time, which means getting that great deal on a Detroit flight is easy-peasy. You'll make spending less look so very good with a few simple steps.

Which days of the week are cheapest to fly?

It pays to be a weekday warrior. Those middle children of the work week, Tuesday and Wednesday, typically have the best rates. Next, Thursday and, surprisingly, Saturday. Most people like to fly back from their trip on Sunday so you can save by leaving a day earlier.

What's the Saturday night stay rule?

If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to SJC 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. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.

What are shoulder seasons?

Shoulder or off-peak seasons are when most vacationers aren't traveling to certain locations. So when it is chilly, most people head off to warmer places like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like our feathered friends. But in 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.

Is that the lowest price?

Airlines change their rates often. If a price you love pops up, then get it! There are a lot of other people that are searching for a great price on a ticket from Oakland to Detroit. You may miss your chance to get the flight and the times you want.
