How To Save On Airline Ticket Price Increases For Spring and Summer 2012
Last year saw nine air fare price increases. Last summer many airfares rose from $30 to $60 on average from the previous summer. This year you can expect surcharges of about 10% for airline tickets during Spring break. For the Summer there will be increases of $10 to $20 on long hauls.
How you can do to save on Spring and Summer travel: Search out the best day to shop for airline tickets and the least expensive days to fly. Sign up for airfare alerts on the Internet with companies like FareCompare, Kayak,, Bing Travel Predictor.. But, be prepared to act on these alerts ahead of time because they may not last long.
Here are a few ideas to save on airfare for spring travel:
• Plan not to fly in late March. Flying during the first week of March compared to the week of March 22 will save travelers about $60 on airfare. The week of March 22 can be particularly expensive.
• Try flying on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to save. A seven-night booking of Tuesday to Tuesday or Wednesday to Wednesday trip can save 20 percent compared to traveling on a Friday or weekend.
• Use airfare alerts and predictions. Airfares change all day long.. The Bing Travel Price Predictor is a helpful tool that predicts whether to buy airfare now or wait. Smart travelers should sign up for airfare alerts and monitor predictions for their trips before booking to help save on airfare costs.
• Look for destinations and hot spots where accommodation rates have been discounted. Many domestic hotels have cut their rates which helps offset the increases in airfares. Many top hotels have reduced rates by 15% or more in the last few years. Find savings in Las Vegas of 27% and San Diego 24% plus savings in Orland, Maui, & Puerto Vallarta.
