Travelers should act fast to book cheap holiday airfare

Experts say this week is the best time to buy tickets for the holiday season


For those traveling this Thanksgiving and want to save a little extra money, travel experts say you better act fast. According to Orbitz Holiday Insider, Tuesday, October 6th is the best day to book a flight at the lowest price.

They stress that the more customers wait to book, the higher prices will go for round trip and one way fares.

If travelers just cannot seem to make those reservations by Tuesday, experts say they should book at least by Thursday, October 8th.

And if customers need a ticket for the Christmas holiday instead, Orbitz says the best day to book is Friday, October 9th.

The organization bases its projections on past holidays, and says travelers are already in line to find cheaper flights after fare has lowered nine percent from last year.
