How can you get a great rate on tickets from Oakland to Los Angeles?

Hotwire has been doing this for a long time, which means getting that great deal on a Los Angeles flight is easy-peasy. You can pocket that extra cash for more than just getting from point A to point B with a few simple tips and tricks.

What is the cheapest day 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.
  • 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 SJC can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less elastic itineraries, so that means more savings for you. Of course, we don't want to twist your rubber arm or anything.

What are shoulder seasons?

It's all about going to a place when its weather is at its best. For example, Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are big hits in the summer. Florida, New Orleans, and Southern California are the most popular in springtime. Winter is prime for Mexico and the Caribbean because of its warm weather, as well as ski and snowboard destinations like the Colorado Rockies. During fall, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and New England draw visitors. 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.

If the price is right, pick it!

Airlines change their rates by the hour sometimes. If a price you love pops up, then grab it! Unsurprisingly, you're not the only traveler longing for a stellar deal on a flight from Oakland to Los Angeles. You might lose your opportunity to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
