Much like getting President’s Day off, you shouldn’t count on any of this. But Hopper predicts these price drops with 95% accuracy, so it’s probably the safest bet you’ll make all month. If you’d like to monitor these flights, you can download the Hopper app, enter your desired travel dates and destinations, and the crack team there will alert you as soon as prices begin to drop. Or you can distract yourself from your February doldrums by obsessively checking flight prices to get yourself excited. We won’t judge.
Really, February should be cause for excitement. It’s a time to celebrate the possibilities of the year ahead, book a trip somewhere awesome, and let life take you where it may. Sure, we might get robbed of a holiday and have to wait 90 minutes for a table at Chili’s on the 14th, but no month is perfect. Just remember someone or something life changing could be right around the corner. Or, possibly, in Jacksonville.
