Is there such a thing as the best time of the week to purchase a plane ticket? You’ll be amazed to know that there really is. All these years of my traveling experience, I always thought that it was good enough that my ticket is purchased way months in advance before my scheduled departure.
Midnight of Tuesdays is the best time, in case you want to know. This is so because airlines normally release travel deals and offers on Fridays, so travelers search for bargains at that time. For people that are willing to deal with uncertainty and gamble, they can then wait until travel offer expires, which is normally on Tuesdays. Furthermore, un-purchased fares or unpaid tickets that are booked flood the airline computer systems at midnight Tuesdays.
The absolute best time to strike is that 1 hour window from midnight until 1 a.m. Wednesday morning(in the city where the airline is based) .
So for travel junkies like me, start planning for that trip. Just be ready to spend that midnight in front of your PC.
