FareCompare Best Time to Buy Thanksgiving Airfare Tracker

Thanksgiving 2010 is November 25, 2010, and the days before and after Thanksgiving are among the busiest travel days in the United States. Unlike past years where procrastinators were rewarded with last minute airfare discounts from carriers desperate to fill airplanes, this year’s prices are trending 17%-18% higher than 2009 in many cities.

As FareCompare CEO Rick Seaney states, “Everyone who didn’t take their Thanksgiving trips last year are flying this year.” Tools like the FareCompare Thanksgiving Flight Finder make it easy to shop by day and price.

FareCompare is going one step further to take the guesswork out of price predictions with our handy Best Time to Buy Thanksgiving Airfare Tracker.
