Sing it with me and Bing Crosby — you’ll be home for Christmas (and Thanksgiving). Whether you’re headed back to the town you grew up in, or taking an exotic vacation, don’t get ripped off by airlines. Even this close to the holidays, there are ways to nab inexpensive flights to get you where you want to go.
“Airfares in general are down this year,” Cheapflights.com editor Melisse Hinkle told USA Today . “And, while the Sunday after Thanksgiving is still in high demand, travel seems to be spreading out more across the holiday week and weekend.”
Choose your dates wisely. CheapAir found the best days to fly for Thanksgiving were Nov. 23-24 and Nov. 26-27, while the worst were Nov. 25 and Nov. 29. For Christmas and New Years, try Dec. 22-25 or Dec. 29-Jan. 1, avoiding Dec. 18-20 and Jan. 2-3.
Skip the nonstop. If you can afford a brief layover, it may help you afford your ticket. Check this site for a ranking of the best airports to kill time in (for the record: London’s Heathrow, San Francisco International and Vancouver International are all good).
