You may not have known it yet, but the day of your reservation can have a decisive influence on the price of your plane ticket. According to a study by the flight comparator Liligo and “Air Indemnité”, Thursday would appear to be IDEAL day to book your ticket. For example, on a Paris-Barcelona trip, experience has shown that by booking a Thursday rather than a Tuesday, you could save up to 39%.

What is the best day to fly?
As it is better to be careful not to book on Friday evening or on weekends, avoid taking your flight on these same days under penalty of unwelcome surcharges. Besides, and although departures are cheaper on weekdays, there is indeed a day to be wary of: Tuesday. And for good reason, it is the day most prone to air disruptions that can cause many delays and cancellations. If you want to be sure you pay a good price, and avoid the crowds at the airport, the best day to leave is Wednesday before 8am. The start of the day is less prone to delays or cancellations.
How long should you book your ticket in advance to pay less?
This is a thorny question! If you are recommended on average to anticipate the booking of your plane tickets 2 to 6 months before your departure. You still need to be able to read between the lines. If the destination is far away, book at least 6 months in advance to hope to find an affordable flight. For flights to Europe, however, buying your tickets 4 to 6 months in advance will allow you to get the best prices. Finally, cLast minute vacations and good deals rarely go well together, but if you persist, choose a season when tourist crowds are lower.
