Haven’t booked your Christmas or New Year’s travel yet? Don’t despair: There may still be bargains to be found.

Our friends at, whose data science team analyzes trends to predict the best times to book and fly, tell us that flying on the Monday before Christmas, December 21, can save you up to 30 percent compared with flying later that week. (It’s also possible to save big by departing on Christmas Eve and either returning Christmas Day or on or after January 5.)

New Year’s travelers can save up to 25 percent by flying on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day.

TALK TO US! Have you found airfare savings by being flexible with your departure/arrival dates this holiday season?
