Cheap Flights & Ticket Deals: It’s A Matter Of Timing, Says New Report

Major airlines are offering end-of-summer deals and cheap flights earlier than many travelers might think.  The airlines’ calendar ends the summer season as early as August 22 this year, according to experienced bargain-hunting travelers.

The news folks at ABC News report that waiting until August 23 or 24 before shopping for flights can save bundles of dollars. The discounted airfares include both domestic and international flights.

Another bonus reward for waiting past August 23 might be to avoid the current security procedures in place now. The TSA has announced some changes to these practices will soon be happening.  For more information, visit http://www.farecompare.com/news/new-airport-security-2011/ .

After August 23, many airlines mark the beginning of the fall travel season.  This is when airfares are reduced and sometimes the reductions are major.  The travel and airfare discount sites such as TravelZoo, Hotwire, and Expedia, to name a few, feature travel deals and cheap flights, especially if the dates for the travel period can be flexible.

The airlines are experts in their customers’ traveling habits and although not all airfares of the fall are bargains, summer is a peak season for the U.S. airlines when big profits are realized.  In late August, that profitability fizzles out; hence bargain basement deals are featured until holiday travel resumes.

I'm a regular person who is passionate about writing... any kind of writing. I used to write short stories as a child. That brought me to a 35 year career as a business writer and instructional designer and developer as well as a developer of user guides, manuals, and instructional classroom aids for corporate trainees. Upon retirement, I tackled the first item on my bucket list -- to write a novel. It took many months of thought, planning, outlining, and ultimately sitting at the keyboard for months but finally, I did write my novel. So now I'm a regular person and retiree who has reinvented herself as a published author of fiction! I love researching everything and anything to satisfy many facets of my very curious personality, so it was only natural that I advance that love of research into reporting on the happenings of the day, weeks and months as to what's new on the shopping lists of merchandise buyers for fashion, and technology. Why not add to that, entertainment and the most layered and complex world of music. I love it all! I hope you'll love some of it :()
