After a number of studies on travel and tourism, for the best time to book a flight, a new study gives a scientific solution to this major query.
CheapAir , an airfare search engine has come up with a study on the best waiting windows to book flight tickets. They analysed data which was collected from over 4 million airplane voyages last year. Researchers tracked the ticket prices from 320 days prior to the flight date up until the day before and they calculated the exact day each fare hit the lowest rate.
It was found that for domestic trips, tickets must be booked around 54 days prior to the departure date. CheapAir says to look for the ‘prime booking window’, within 104 and 29 days before the departure date for the best deals.
