Research from Google Flights reveals that the optimal days to snag budget-friendly airline tickets are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

During these days, prices can dip as much as 17% compared to weekend rates, particularly for domestic flights.

James Byers, Google Flights’ product director, recommends booking several weeks ahead to capitalize on these savings.

Securing tickets at least a month prior to departure is a savvy move, given the surge in prices closer to flight dates.

Low-cost carriers make the deal more attractive with substantial discounts for early bookings, tailoring fares based on demand and lead time before takeoff, catering seamlessly to travelers’ needs.
