The Cheapest Day to Buy Airline Tickets



Are you in desperate need of a holiday, but your bank account disagrees with you? Fear not, travelling is no longer strictly for the rich and famous, you can undeniably reach your ultimate destination on a budget. Here are some tips to help you discover the cheapest way to booking your next holiday.

Best day to book your flight

Truthfully, there is no definitive day of the week that tickets will be cheaper, however what we do know for sure is that you should avoid purchasing flights on a Friday and Sunday. Various articles on the internet claim that Tuesday is the best day for cheaper deals, although there is no concrete evidence for this, there are studies that say that buying during the beginning of the week is the cheapest.

Time and date

A significant attribute to the price of flights is not usually about what day you book the tickets, but the date and time you book to fly out. Like our first point, weekends are the most expensive days to fly in and out. Try your best and book on weekday, and choose flights that are either in the early morning or overnight flights. People tend to not want these times, so the airlines makes them cheaper to fill up seats.

Avoid peak season

If you can avoid it, do not fly during peak season. Airlines know that people will pay extra dollars to see their family during the holiday season and school holiday periods.

The earlier, the better

Don’t wait until the last minute to buy your ticket, the later you leave it the more expensive it will be. The best time to book an international flight is approximately 20 weeks before you plan to fly out, and for domestic it is six weeks before your date of departure. Also, by booking earlier, your bank account can also recover a little faster as well.

Connecting flights

If you don’t have the money but you have the time, opt for connecting flights. Obviously non-stop flights are more convenient, but there are package deals which reduce the prices up to 50% if you do find a connecting flight. Always do you research and compare direct flights with connecting flights, only you will know if a cheaper price is worth the wait.

It's very close to the airport, the shuttle service worked beautifully, and it was reasonably priced. However, above all I was impressed by the friendliness of every employee I met working there.



Have been a customer on Park on King about 4 times now. Always impressed by their service and going above and beyond to make you feel like you're in safe hands.



The team was on time and informative and knew exactly where to be for for our return transfers. Made it very easy especially with 2 young children.
