Get the best fare for holiday travel

According to the Orbitz Holiday Fare Trends Calendar booking holiday flights on Oct. 8 fetches the best fares and the most choice.

Best day for booking New Year’s Eve travel according to the travel website is Oct. 14.

But don’t fret if you’ve missed the date.

Orbitz advises that holiday season flights booked before the 28 of October will bring lower fares than bookings in November or December.

You’ll pay the most, according to the calendar, if you wait ‘til Dec. 16th to purchase Christmas flights and you’re advised to avoid most days after Dec. 11 for booking New Year’s Eve travel.
