(NBC News) For travelers that are looking to make Thanksgiving dinner this year, and have to fly to get there, the best day to book a flight at the lowest price is Tuesday, October 6th.
“This early week in October is when prices are dipping the most before they head back up as we get close to the holidays,” said Jeanenne Tornatore, Senior Editor at Orbitz.com
According to the annual Orbitz Holiday Insider Survey, the entire week of October 5th is the best opportunity to get the best bargains for all holiday flights.
“Book your holiday airfare sooner than later because once you hit mid-October, you’re only going to see those prices continue to rise,” said Tornatore.
Orbitz bases its projections on past holidays and says travelers are already in line to find cheaper flights with airfares 9% lower than last year.
