Online travel agency CheapAir said it has published the 2014 Summer Cheap Flights Index, a guide for travelers who want the very best fares for summer vacation.
CheapAir said it is analyzing over 11,000 flights per day or over 900,000 flights over the summer to give travelers cheap flight intel that can´t be found anywhere else on the web.
This year´s index reveals that the lowest average fares can be found on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are predictably the most expensive. For weeklong trips, travelers can save an average of USD77 per ticket if they travel on Tuesdays instead of Sundays. For travelers considering a trip in August, June was the best time to book.
As for Labor Day, people should avoid flying on Friday, August 29 and Monday, September 1. If possible, depart on Wednesday, August 27 and stay until Tuesday or Wednesday. Overall, the sooner travelers book, the better their odds of getting a good deal.
Headquartered in Calabasas, CA, CheapAir is powered by a team of 50 travel enthusiasts who use cutting edge technology and superior customer service to radically simplify the way people shop for travel deals.
