If you miss that window, make sure you purchase your ticked at least 21 days in advance. Contratry to traditional thought, airline flights do not get cheaper as you get closer to takeoff.
  3. Buy your tickets in the morning, Insiders tell U.S. News and World Report that “airlines only post a limited number of seats at a reduced fare at night.” Those fares are typically gone as the day goes along.
  4. Tuesdays at 3 PM Eastern time is the best day and time to buy your tickets according to farecompare.com
