Cheaper Air Fares Soon
If you are planning a trip within or from North America, air fares will be cheaper if you can postpone it until August 23 or later. That is the date when lower fall fares take effect, and savings can be substantial. At least, that is what the Website Fare Compare http://www.farecompare.com says.
Of course, the fares will rise around popular holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you must travel during that time, you will usually pay less and have to contend with fewer fellow travellers if you can wait until the actual holiday and fly then--for example, on Thanksgiving itself instead of the previous day.
This advice applies to flights within North America or from North America to Europe or Asia. I try to avoid flying around the holidays myself, but for some people that is not an option.
It may not have much to do with budget travel, but I have posted a number of travel stories on Wattpad http://www.wattpad.com under my own name, and would appreciate your reads and comments. There are stories from before I started doing this blog, so you can learn about Russia in the time of the USSR, Berlin shortly after the fall of the Wall, and other nostalgia. Thanks for reading.
