Sweet ‘16: Lower Airline Fares Predicted PDF Print E-mail

According to latest reports, because of dropping gas prices and other factors, travel costs in 2016 could be the lowest in years. So, now that you’re a seasoned citizen, with more time to hit the road, consider several important savings tips.

By booking inclusive vacations that combine air fare and hotel reservations, savings could be up to 25% cheaper than booking separately. Also, if you’re available to fly at any time, the lowest-priced airfares are those booked from one to two months in advance. And tickets for Wednesday night/red eye flights are the cheapest.

Of course, when making your travel plans, keep checking daily, sometimes hourly, for online deals that make the savings even more bountiful.
