Airfares lowest for Tues & Wed flights
April 13 (TravelAndy): Airfares tend to be lowest for flights that depart on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, say experts of Airfarewatchdog, Cheapair and Expedia.
However, it is important to remember that this is not an exact science and these assumptions are only based on trends.
In a “comprehensive review of air travel data” brought out by travel giant Expedia, it says for short-haul trips, travelers can save up to 25 per cent by departing on Saturday and returning on Tuesday as compared to departing on Sunday and returning on Monday.
For long-haul flights, Expedia says, leaving on a Thursday and returning on Monday can prove 20 per cent cheaper than departing on Friday and returning on Saturday.
