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.

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.

                                          Warm, clean room. Had everything you need in it. Only thing was you could hear the people next door to you having showers, but it’s an older motor lodge.
