SALT LAKE CITY — Airfare can be the most expensive part of traveling, but there are ways to bring that cost down.
People can set up daily or weekly alerts so they'll know when prices drop so they can get the best deals on tickets, Jessica Casano-Antonellis, spokesperson for Kayak, told Fox Business.
But that's just one way to get an inexpensive flight. Buying a ticket shortly before your trip is another way to go, according to the article. "Up until 28 days prior to your trip, ticket prices are pretty much the same," Sarah Keeling, director of public relations at Expedia, told Fox Business. Prices tend to be lowest 18 to 28 days before the trip.
Domestic airfares are usually lowest about 21 days before the vacation begins, Casano-Antonellis told Fox Business. These prices were approximately 8 percent less than average fares available six months before the departure date, according to Kayak. The average price jumps 5 percent two weeks before departure and 30 percent with just one week left.
