Yes, the time and day can affect your flight cost and it’s a known fact! I’m a backpacker from New Zealand and my partner is from the other side of the world, United Kingdom, so that means I HAVE to search for the absolute cheapest flight otherwise I would be broke for the rest of my life. I wrote this article a year ago but now I have added a few more points and tricks I have learnt that will help you book a really, REALLY cheap flight which is great if you are backpacking around the world!
According to multiple sources the best time to book your flight is about 7 weeks before takeoff. A lot of air travelers believe in waiting for a last-minute deal. According to new research, you should NEVER book your ticket within the final two weeks before the flight... a mistake that 36 percent of CheapAir users made when planning their trips.
