Although remote work has risen over the years, the average cost of flights has remained relatively consistent since 2019. Savvy travelers know that the cheapest days of the week to fly are Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as they are typically the lowest demand. Although, if midweek flights are not an option, it may be best to travel on Saturdays as its the third cheapest day of the week to fly. Finally, these rules don’t apply to holidays, as demand spikes as people travel to visit their families.
- The additional flexibility that is associated with no more five-day in-office workweeks allows travelers to select less expensive days to travel.
- The cheapest days of the week to travel are still Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
- Holidays remain an exception to every pattern, but remote workers can work around this due to their flexible schedule.
