Ways to Save on Thanksgiving Flights

  1. Don’t Procrastinate: Prices rise by $4 a day leading up to Thanksgiving. The longer you wait, the more you will pay.
  2. Compare airfares: Always compare airline ticket prices. If you only go to a favorite airline site to get your airfare you risk paying too much (maybe, way too much) because no airline always has the cheapest flights.
  3. Add a stop to the route: A connecting flight is often significantly cheaper than a non-stop flight. This isn’t always true but often enough that you should always compares prices for different routes.
  4. Use a carry-on: This is free on most airlines but even more important, a bag that travels with you is a bag that cannot get lost. You’ll also get out of that crowded airport earlier. Check the FareCompare Baggage Fee Chart for a comprehensive list of fees. 

If you’re flexible or don’t want to fly during the Thanksgiving rush, these dates are super cheap.
