Choosing the day of the week to book your summer vacation flights can affect your budget. As summer approaches, the excitement of your upcoming vacation becomes more and more palpable.

Before you start planning your summer vacation, you need to listen to expert advice. The rsvplive article explains how to book cheap tickets.

Fly in the middle of the week to save money

Research shows that choosing the right day to book a flight can save you significant amounts of money. Tuesday is usually considered the best day to buy tickets, but for domestic flights, it is better to consider the period from Monday to Wednesday. For international flights, you should pay attention to Wednesday and Thursday, as these are the days when you can most often find the best deals, which can save up to 20%.

Book additional services in advance

Some expenses that may seem insignificant can be the most costly when planning your summer vacation. For example, the cost of airport parking can increase significantly if you don't book in advance, especially if you plan to stay for a long time. The same applies to luggage: checking it in at the airport can be much more expensive than pre-clearing it.

The right price is at the end of the season

Prices tend to rise as the departure date approaches, so it is recommended to book tickets six months in advance, especially if you are planning an international flight. In the summer, ticket prices are likely to peak in June and drop in August, making the last weeks of August the most attractive time to book.

Compare prices and reviews on websites

Once you've found affordable places to stay abroad, it's important to remember that quality and relaxation don't necessarily depend on price. Do your research by reading reviews carefully and comparing prices, as cheaper hotels can often have just as good recommendations as more expensive options. When choosing hotel deals, be sure to check what is included in the price.

For example, an all-inclusive system may not be as beneficial as it seems at first glance if not all services are included in the package. Therefore, it is important to carefully study the conditions to avoid disappointment.

Take food with you to the airport

Even small changes can save you a lot of money. The prices of food and drinks at the airport or on board an airplane can be significantly overpriced. Therefore, instead of spending large sums on snacks on the road, it is recommended to bring snacks and drinks with you to save money for more pleasant expenses during your vacation.

Take out travel insurance immediately after booking to get a better price

The best time to buy travel insurance is right after you book your vacation. Although the price of insurance is not subject to significant changes over time, its terms and conditions may change. Purchasing insurance right after booking gives you more flexibility of choice, including the option to "Cancel for any reason", which can be an important advantage if your plans change suddenly.

Additionally, your policy cancellation benefits kick in from the moment the insurance takes effect, giving you protection both before and during your vacation.
