Of course actual savings varies based on your destination. So it’s always a good idea to track your desired dates and flights if you’re not finding decent prices.

  • The Hopper app will notify you when prices drop
  • Google Flights will send you email updates on airfare prices for your desired dates

To get even cheaper fares, be flexible. Coming back on the Monday or Tuesday after Thanksgiving will typically save money. Also be willing to fly less popular times like early morning or late at night.
