The holidays are (finally) over. And now you have a long winter to look forward to. Since you’ve stopped spending all your hard earned money buying gifts for others, it’s time to think of yourself and your needs. And January can be the best time to book a vacation and treat yourself to an escape.
Data has shown that January is the best time to book affordable flights. Especially with the first two weeks of January offering great deals on flights taken in the first six months of the year. By March, domestic flights can raise 13 percent and international flights can raise by 56 percent.
Planning ahead can be your friend when you are looking to plan your vacation. If you own a timeshare and already know your travel dates, you can greatly benefit financially by booking your flights in January. Additionally, you can utilize websites like Airfarewatchdog and Google Flights that will let you know if you should book right away or wait based on travel trends for that specific route.
If you’re looking to actually take a trip in January, it is historically the most cost-effective month for travelers. You can find deals during the “post holiday slump” starting on January 4th and ending February 15th, when prices tend to go up.
