Unless you’re Drake, ILoveMakonnen, or you work in the service industry, Tuesdays don't mean a helluva lot to you. It's just another crappy day that's not Friday. But if you care about saving money on flights, well, Tuesday is your new favorite day.
According to a recent Expedia report, the average flight ticket costs $561 when you purchase on a Tuesday, the cheapest day to buy. On Fridays, for example, tickets cost $571. And if you buy three weeks in advance, you'll save the most money with tickets costing just $515 on Tuesday, or $522 on Friday. The booking site analyzed fares for all domestic and international flights originating in the US to determine its figures.
Although you won’t save a huge amount of cash by booking on a Tuesday, you'll still save a little over 5%, or approx. $28 off the average ticket price. Avoid booking on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays, as they're the worst in terms of pricing. Apparently, everyone wants to get away for the weekend -- or as soon as they get back into the office on Monday.
