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.
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.
