Those planning to travel for Thanksgiving this fall have only a few days left to find deals on their flights.
The Hopper — a travel app that shows users the best time to buy a ticket — recommends that travelers book a Thanksgiving flight in mid-September.
Hopper economist Addit Damodaran said, “For a Thanksgiving trip at the latest, read a Halloween book.” “After Halloween, three weeks before Thanksgiving, airfares really start to rise.”
Hopper predicts that Thanksgiving flight fares will increase by at least 40% in early November.
Experts also say this week is a good time to look for Christmas flights. Hopper says travelers must book a Christmas flight by Halloween or at least four weeks before departure.
Hopper also expects airfares for leisure travelers to be more affordable this fall compared to summer highs.
“Domestic airfares are expected to fall by about 10% from an average round trip of $ 290 this summer to an average round trip of $ 260 in the fall,” said Damodaran.
There are other options to choose from. In the early days of the pandemic, many low-cost carriers added destinations to their list, including airports near the beach and popular outdoor destinations.
