How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Fridays tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2019. Purchasing your airfares on a Monday or Tuesday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Saturday. Our data shows, the start of the weekend has the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals on a weekend.

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, but earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Tuesday are the cheapest of the week. Since weekend flights tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise which is why on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2019 were most expensive for Saturday departures.

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 1-2 weeks prior to their travel dates.

How can I save money on airline tickets?

We'll let you in on a secret...You can save big on flights if you mix and match your airlines and fare types. In fact, travellers who booked flights on Travelocity.ca in 2019 saved close to 55% when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.

Great flight day experience

Jun 24, 2018

I wish I knew the name of the lady who helped me retrieve my wallet that I left on the plane. She was exceptional!! She went out of her way to get it back to me. She made my day, I think she was the assistant manger on shift for United on June 22nd in Toronto Pearson airport. Thank you again so much!! Not to mention how beautiful she was! Sorry I had to add that. I would have never got my wallet back if it wasn’t for her, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

I didn't have most of the items that were mentioned as possible things I might have liked (free checked bag, tasty food, etc.) I would have liked my flight even more if I had had those things!! I was happy to have friendly, helpful staff members, however.
