Three tips to finding affordable flights on Delta!

Although it’s the shortest month of the year, February seems to draaaagggggg on. Anyone else agree?! So, why not take a break from your same old routine and change up the scenery a bit?

Maybe some family members are overdue for a visit, or there’s a corner of the world you’ve never seen. Regardless of your ambitions, #Delta makes it easy to travel anywhere you could dream of - even on a budget!

Here are three tips to finding affordable flights:

Use the right sites The first trick to finding affordable flights is to use the right websites. Google Flights, Skyscanner and Momondo are great resources to help you scan thousands of flights to ensure you’re getting the lowest price possible! You can decide which Delta fare is best for you, and you’ll be redirected to their site to book your flight.

Book at the right time It’s a misconception that booking flights as early as possible will save you the most money. [Delta agents suggest] that you should aim to purchase tickets 6 - 12 weeks before your anticipated departure date. This avoids last-minute pricing spikes but is close enough that tickets start to reflect discount costs.

Know the cheapest days to fly Friday’s are the most popular day to fly and therefore, are the most expensive day for tickets. Try booking a flight that leaves on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday for the best rates. Also, if you’re willing to leave super early or take on a redeye flight, you’ll save a few bucks!

Any other tips for affordable flying?! Comment below! :)

Bon Voyage!
