MIAMI, Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Skyscanner, the global travel search engine, continues to help travelers uncover the best time to book for fall travel and is forecasting a downward trend in domestic airline ticket prices for the last two weeks of September. After analyzing 2016 flight pricing data, Skyscanner reports show that travelers can anticipate saving a potential savings of 22 percent if they book domestic airline tickets before the end of this month. As October rolls in, airfare prices are predicted to increase and then plateau through to the middle of December, with the last two weeks of 2017 seeing an 8 percent jump in ticket prices.
"This moment of price savings in domestic air travel makes it a great time to plan a getaway for the Fall season, or to purchase your tickets for the holidays," said Randi Wolfson, Head of Communications for the Americas, Skyscanner. "With a heavy travel season upon us, uncovering this window of opportunity will help travelers save as they head into a traditionally expensive time of year."
Skyscanner makes it easy for travelers to take advantage of this pricing trend, with its Daily Flight Deals tools, which highlights the best cost-saving flights around the country, as well as for international destinations. Skyscanner Flight deals identified through this tool often reach up over 50 percent in savings.
