Experts recommend you start booking your vacation trip now

When is the best time to book flights?

For domestic flights, it is better to remember to buy your plane ticket at least three weeks in advance to avoid higher prices.

Travel expert Cynika Drake, president of Lavish Lifestyles Concierge, told The Sun Sundays and Tuesdays are the best days to book a flight.

She said: “Before you book your flight, clear your cookies as websites use it to gauge your interest and from there inflate the price, especially if you have searched this site several times for a flight or hotel. “

“Also, to prevent tracking, view airline and hotel websites in private browsing mode. “

If you are traveling abroad, there are always deals with prices around 35% lower than in 2019. Drake recommends booking at least four months in advance.

When is the best time to book train tickets?

Train fares, and even bus fares, do not differ in the same way as air fares.

Train tickets are usually sold in price brackets, with the cheapest rates being first. The earlier you buy, the cheaper it will be.

If you have the flexibility, you can usually find midweek sales.

Ms. Drake said you can make an Amtrak reservation up to 11 months in advance.

The more reservations they have for a given date, the more expensive the ticket becomes due to demand.

What can I expect on the roads?

Prices at the pump do not prevent people from refueling and getting to their destination.

According to AAA, the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded is $ 3.38, $ 1.22 more than in 2020.

“More people are traveling this year than last year and many are splurging to make up for the year when they did nothing,” Ms. Drake said.

The most expensive gas in the United States is found in California with an average price for unleaded at $ 4.54 per gallon.
