Sure you do! Well, she's back and this time she's helping us fly for cheap!!!
The folks over at Cheapair.com are using math to try and make the world better! They just crunched a bunch of data and figured out precisely when you should and when you shouldn't buy commercial airline tickets!
Spoiler Alert: DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST SECOND!
"For most domestic trips, we found a similar pattern. The worst time to book your trip was the last minute. No big shocker there. The day before was the single worst day, two days before was the second worst, etc. etc. all the way up to 13 days in advance. Our data completely debunks the myth that if you wait until the last minute, there will be big price reductions to take advantage of, as airlines dump empty seats. That simply doesn’t happen, and buying a flight with less than two weeks advance purchase is the last strategy we would recommend."
And there you go!
It has been well over 110 years since the Wright Brothers discovered flight — it's about time someone published comprehensive guide on how to fly places on the cheap!
