How to Book Inexpensive Flights for the Holidays

During the busy holiday season, over 2 million people are flying every day! Thanksgiving and Christmas 2020 are going to undoubtedly be a little more hectic than usual this year, however, you can ease some of your holiday woes by reading this article on how to find cheap flights.

We have got the tips and tricks you need to save yourself time and money on holiday travel. Let’s take a look!


Let’s be real...No one wants to travel on the actual holiday! That being said, flexibility on the date of travel that includes the actual holiday could end up saving you money in the long run.

Furthermore, you should be flexible in terms of what time you are going to depart/arrive. Catching the red-eye flight, while not an ideal time, could save you an arm and leg during the holidays.

Alternative Airports

While the convenience of flying into a major airport/city cannot be overlooked, at the end of the day the smaller airports can save you a lot of money. Look for airlines that fly into smaller regional airports that surround the city you are flying into.

Ask your friends and family to embrace the holiday spirit and pick you up rather than taking a cab or renting a car to save money. Generally, you should be able to find a regional airport within 25 miles of most major cities.

Booking flights during the holidays

Be Mindful of Bag Fees

You might find that you have scored a great deal on a flight, however, the fees can add up quickly. During holiday travel you will be more likely to travel with a little extra luggage. Bag fees can quickly surpass the price of a budget ticket.

Keep that in mind when you are comparing prices for plane tickets. In the end, a carrier that provides free checked bags might have a more expensive ticket initially, however, the overall cost will be less than that of the budget airline with astronomical bag fees.

How to Find Cheap Flights This Holiday Season

With Thanksgiving 2020 quickly approaching you should be mindful of these tips as you book your holiday flights. Working with a travel agent is a great way to de-stress and save money during the holidays.

So don't spend another second of your efforts by booking your own vacation. Reduce the hassle and spend more time connecting with loved ones by giving As You Wish Luxury Travel a call to custom design your next travel experience.
