The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is officially the busiest and best day to buy an airline ticket all year. According to flight tracker Hopper, today will be the day when sales spike by six times the normal volume. Cheap flights will be everywhere!
This is due to the post holiday sales slump that’s about it hit. Basically, it’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday rolled into one, but for flights. The catch? The sales activity starts at 6:30 AM eastern time and starts to peak around 9:30 the same morning. So you’ll have to be active early and often.
Our best advice is to set up alerts now. Check Expedia, Kayak, and Momondo for the best deals and keep an eye on Twitter (Secret Flying and Error Fares). Below are some of the best deals right now. They’ll change throughout the day and we’ll be here to update them!
