Travel Tuesday Part 1
In the first part of my five part of traveling tips I’m going to share when the best time is to purchase flights. Believe it or not there is a certain day and even time when flight are the most affordable. For many years I’ve always used Southwest Airlines as my go to for flights because they always have appeared to be the most affordable (I hate the word cheap), however that was until I discovered Kayak.

So when is the best time to purchase your airfare? Resources say that Tuesdays at 3:00 pm, six weeks before your flight is when tickets are the absolute cheapest…eek I said cheap! BEWARE, the weekend is the absolute worst time to purchase airfare. Rates can be anywhere from $75- $150 MORE! With that being said, its also important to do your research.
With Kayak I’ve gotten pretty lucky with $100 round trip flights to Denver, and a round trip flight to Miami for $285. However, I think the fact that I’m located in Las Vegas has an advantage on the rates I pay for flights. Anyways, if you haven’t heard of you use Kayak, I highly recommend giving it a try.
