3. Book Early & Wisely
If you’re traveling around the holidays and you’re procrastinating about booking your tickets—you’re costing yourself money. The longer you wait, the more expensive your tickets will be. If you’re flexible about when you travel this winter, the first two weeks of December tend to be cheaper than the rest of the month.

4. Avoid Peak Travel Days & Times
If you simply must get wherever you’re going during the holiday rush, the experts say to book your flights early in the day. When you’re the first to fly in the morning, you’ll be less likely to experience back-ups and delays at the airport. If you can, you really should avoid traveling the days before or after Thanksgiving and Christmas.
