What are the cheapest days to fly?

Here’s an insider tip: Sunday is typically the cheapest day to fly! Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights departing on a Sunday generally had the lowest average price, closely followed by flights on a Monday. You might want to think twice about flying on a Saturday too; generally, our data showed that it had the highest average ticket price.

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Guess what? Boring old Wednesday really is the best day to score the cheapest plane tickets. Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights purchased on a Wednesday had the lowest airfares on average. Booking your plane ticket on a Sunday also seems to score pretty good deals. However, airfares purchased on a Saturday generally have a higher than average ticket value, so you might want to prepare your budget if you’re booking on a weekend.

What is the cheapest month to fly?

When comparing airfares booked through Wotif in 2019, our data shows October is one of the cheapest months to fly. On the other hand, the December holiday period can be one of the most expensive times to travel, with the highest average ticket price, so it’s best to get in early during peak periods.

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing 1-3 weeks prior to travel.

How can I save money on flights?

Looking for clever ways to save on your next trip? Try mixing and matching airlines and fare types. Our data tells us, travellers who booked flights on Wotif in 2019 saved close to 55% off their airfare, when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.
