2016 Summer Cheap Flights

Best days to fly for Summer Vacation

While a lot of travel sites focus on the July 4th and Labor Day holidays, there’s really no such thing as a one-size-fits-all summer vacation. This year we’re bringing you the data to help you narrow your air travel dates, whether you’re planning a family vacation in June just after the kids get out of school, a more traditional July 4th getaway or an off-peak vacay in more wallet-friendly September. Historically, you can score the best deals in August and September, and this year is on track for similar late-summer value. Check out our calendar to discover the dates best fitting your needs.
