Best Time to Buy Plane Tickets

The Best Time to Buy Your Airline Tickets

I don't know about you, but when I know I'm going on a trip, I check several travel sites multiple times a day, almost to a point of obsessiveness. And when I finally find a ticket with a great price, I practically glow with a sense of achievement. After my purchase, I still keep going back to travel sites just to see how much the prices rise, and every time I see them become more expensive, I quietly congratulate myself on my savvy purchase.

For those of you who have the same compulsion, check out these tips from the Wall Street Journal on when to buy tickets.

  • Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best time to buy tickets
  • Discounted sale campaigns are usually launched on Monday night and end by Thursday or Friday
  • Rick Seaney, an expert who has studied fare prices for three years, says that 3 p.m. EST on Tuesday is the best time to buy
  • Weekends are the most expensive times to buy tickets
