Mid-December through the first week of January is the most expensive time to fly all year -- yes, even more expensive than around Thanksgiving. The trouble is, it’s also precisely the time of year when you’ve already committed to flying home to see your grandma, or you’re feeling guilty about not flying home to keep said grandma company, or you need a warm-weather break that conveniently doubles up as an excuse not to see said grandma. Any way you look at it, it’s all the more important to get a good deal on flights at Christmas and New Year’s.
But don’t panic. We know you didn’t ask, but we talked to the folks at some of our go-to sites for cheap-ass flights, like Hopper and Hipmunk, nonetheless. And guess what, they came up with heaps of fun options for you. Round-trip airfare to somewhere warm (or cold!) for $100? Happy Holidays!
