Who said flights aren’t cheap during the holiday season? While prices undoubtedly run high during the last few months of the year, travelers looking for inexpensive flights can luck out if they book their flight for Christmas day.
According to online travel company Hipmunk, travelers can save $100 or more on flights that are booked for December 25th. Additionally, due to Christmas Day being a holiday, it is the least busy day for departure during the holidays. Only 1% of all bookings are scheduled on Christmas Day.
Many travelers that wait until November or even December to book their flights are often expecting to shell out several hundred dollars just to make it home for the holidays. Others that haven’t purchased their tickets earlier are prepared to spend the rest of the year curled up at home. However, there is still time for some last minute travel plans.
Using Kayak’s Explore tool, travelers can find the most inexpensive tickets for Christmas Day travel. Ready to take a holiday adventure departing on Christmas? Check out the following holiday deals:
