If you have not already booked your flights to visit family over Thanksgiving or Christmas, now is the time to book your holiday travel, writes BMTN's guest travel bloggers Twice The Baggage.

According to CheapAir.com, late September is the prime time to book the least expensive flight domestically over the holiday season.

Cheapair analyzed pricing data and trends over the past few years and has crunched the numbers.

While April 8th was the cheapest day to book holiday travel, ticket prices dip into late September, right after being at their height at the end of August.

After the drop in late September, the prices are expected to swell back up in the start of October and well into the month.

Twice The Baggage: Is it worth paying $100 for Global Entry?

Getting the best price is easy

Don’t have exact travel dates. Be flexible with your date ranges. Often times you will be able to get a steal of a deal departing in the middle of the week or early in the morning.

Twice The Baggage recommends using Google Flights to find the least expensive fares. You will have the ability to filter almost everything down to your liking: airline, fare class, baggage, time of day etc. Google will do the rest for you in finding the cheapest fare.

Don’t waver in your decision. If you see a cheap flight that you are willing to pay for, book it!

With so many eyeballs trying to book flights over the holidays, dynamic pricing will be constantly fluctuating. So, you might end up paying a couple of dollars more, but it is better to know that you have something booked rather than waiting and hoping.
