  • Jun 4 The least expensive day to travel this month is the first Tuesday. We recommend shopping early. June is popular with families and competition for the best fares will be fierce!
  • Jun 12 Every Tuesday and Wednesday in June offers the best flight prices of the month. If you fly any Wednesday in June, you can save $87 on average than flying on Sunday.
  • Jun 20 The first official day of summer.
  • Jun 30 The most expensive day to fly this month (and the 2nd most expensive flight day this summer) is the last Sunday of the month. With July 4 landing mid-week this year, we'll be seeing some holiday travel this Sunday. Keep that in mind!
