With Labor Day just around the corner, Travelocity has put together a list of the best times to book cheap flights for that weekend. Travelocity took a look at the data from the past five years and compiled and analyzed the data. They found that the most affordable time to book travel for Labor Day weekend is five weeks in advance of travel, which means July 27-29. The average cost of a flight booked in this window was $339.
The most expensive time to book a flight for Labor Day weekend has traditionally been the weekend before the long weekend, between August 31 and September 2, at an average price of $416. The Travelocity data also shows that if travellers book a package including airfare and hotel accommodations, then they can save as much as $525. However, when it comes down to it, as Courtney Scott, senior editor for Travelocity, says, the sooner you book, the more you will save.
