2014 Holiday Cheap flight fare predictions and flight fare buying strategy
Christmas holiday flights best dates to depart and return:
December 24 and December 25 are usually cheaper dates to depart
December 31st or January 6th are good dates to find cheaper return flight after Christmas holidays
If you couldn’t depart Dec 24th or 25th for obvious reasons, try to depart on or before December 18th and try to return on 31st or wait until Jan 6th or later.
Last year performance – from reviewing over 3000 holiday flight deals
Last Thanksgiving and December 2013 time, we published over 3000 cheap flight fares from all major airlines. You could review them in our archive or expired deals section. These deals and their dates of publishing, purchase by date, travel dates, etc will give you a sense of historic trends and what to expect this year.
During these periods, from November 24th through December 8th, most airlines released big thanksgiving deals. These deals included flight fares that went as low as $40, but required tickets be purchased by Nov 25th for flights traveling around Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year holiday season.
Look through our expired deals posts (remember, they are expired from past year) and it will give you an idea of what you could expect to see this year. This is only our prediction and based on what we have seen in the past several years. Also, remember that each airline has specific destinations that they release deals for. For example, last year, we saw that Virgin Airlines kept releasing lot of deals around Los Angeles to Las Vegas for around $66.
We hope to publish such massive flight deals even this year. So stay tuned.
We wish you a safe holiday season!
