Planning to take a much-needed vacation this summer?Fly out on a Tuesday and you'll save a chunk of cash.
Passengers who schedule flights that depart on summer Tuesdays will pay an average of $77, or 17%, less for a ticket than they would if they fly out on a Sunday, the most expensive day of the week to fly, according to a survey by Cheapair.com.
The booking site compared fares for 900,000 round-trip flights scheduled between June and September and found that the average fare for a Tuesday was $367. That compares with $444 on Sundays, $412 on Fridays and $402 on Saturdays. Wednesdays were also cheap at an average of $368.
It's also much better to book in advance. The scheduling sweet spot is a window of one to three months before your trip, with booking 54 days in advance yielding the lowest prices, Cheapair found.
