When Is the Best Time to Buy Airfare?

Researchers in the Department of Economics at Texas A&M University studied a historical archive of airline ticket purchases and found the best deals are on the weekend.

Newswise— While folk wisdom has its place, the “folks” may not be so wise when it comes to shopping for airline tickets, say researchers at Texas A&M University.
“There’s been this industry folk wisdom that says Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best days to purchase airline tickets,” says Steven Puller, an associate professor of economics at Texas A&M who specializes in industrial organization. “But we couldn’t find any systematic analysis to back that up.”
Rather, he says, the weekend is the best time to book airline tickets because airlines are more likely to discount fares on Saturday and Sunday.

A Multi-Generational Vacation for the Whole Family

Thinking of the perfect place for a Christmas gathering? Why not Aruba?

Aruba Bound
Ten years ago, 3 generations of our family living in 3 separate parts of the country, began spending Christmas and New Year's together on either cruises or in Aruba on a land vacation. We started our holiday vacations when my grandmother was a young 90 years old and our dd was 8 years old and my nieces and nephew were 10, 12 and 15.

For us, up this year is the Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort.
