New Travel Hacks Can Get DIA’s Best Vacation Flight Deals

DENVER (KDVR) – New shared travel tips could help you save hundreds of dollars on your vacation flights from Denver International Airport this season.

Airline ticket prices are increasing almost every day as we get closer to the holidays.

The good news: Travel experts have told problem solvers they still see great, even last-minute fares for travel over Thanksgiving right now out of DIA.

But analysts say vacation travel this year is going to look a lot more like 2019, which is why you should buy your tickets ASAP.

Some new tips include booking your Thanksgiving flights before Halloween. After Halloween, travel experts say domestic fares will increase and cost around $ 400 round trip.

Right now, they cost around $ 100 less, depending on which travel service you use.

When you look at Christmas, analysts at ScottsCheapFlights.com say the flights will be even busier and more expensive.

Fortunately, there are a few tips for saving money:

“If we’re talking about the Christmas holidays, if you travel on those peak dates like December 22, December 23, you’re going to pay a little more, no matter what. That said, if you’re willing to be a little more flexible by traveling earlier or on Christmas Day, you’ll get a better deal. We saw a $ 137 non-stop round trip [flight] from Denver to Montana to see Yellowstone, ”Willis Orlando said with ScottsCheapFlights.com.

If you’re looking to travel overseas for vacation, you’ll find some cheap deals right now, including a Denver-Cancun roundtrip flight over Thanksgiving for $ 220 round trip.

The best day to book a flight is now Sunday rather than Friday, according to a new report from Expedia.

By booking on a Sunday, research shows travelers can save around 5% on domestic flights.

Some experts suggest that instead of booking a certain day or time, try traveling on a certain day and time instead.

“Traveling on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday will be significantly cheaper 99 times out of 100 than traveling on a Monday or Friday. Business travelers don’t travel on these days, which means the prices are lower, ”Orlando explained.
