Want a cheap flight? Travel on a Tuesday
Which?!?!?!?! have been at it again, looking for people to bother and money to save. Mercifully, they're focusing on the latter and have found that, should you want cheap flights, you'd better book them for departure on a Tuesday.
Their research reveals that Tuesday is the cheapest day of the week to book your flight out of the UK because, on average, flights on other days are £28 more expensive.
Sunday is the most expensive day to return home, on average, being 45% more expensive than Thursdays. So fly back on a Thursday. In addition to that, fly at specific times of the day. 86% of British Airways cheapest flights were before 7.30am. Returning home, BA's cheapest inbound flights were in the evening.
Richard Lloyd, Which!!!! executive director, said: "With household budgets squeezed, holidaymakers will want to make sure they are getting a good deal on their flights."
"We found that people can save a significant sum of money if they shop around and can be flexible, changing the day or time they choose to travel."
