If you’re planning a trip for the New Year, you may want to consider flying back home on a Monday rather than a Sunday.
Google recently took a look at historical pricing for airfare and determined that travelling on a Monday can often be up to 31 per cent cheaper than travelling on Sunday from many destinations. So, rather than taking a long weekend that starts on Friday, you might be better served to shift your 3-day weekend trip to Saturday-Monday instead.
You can also save some cash by looking at surrounding airports. While you might think a big airport will offer the best deals, sometimes choosing to fly out of a smaller local airport can save you a bundle. According to Google, flight prices can sometimes drop 57%.
