When's the best time and day of the week to book a holiday, hotel, flights and airport parking?
Once you’ve decided when and where you want to go, most people focus on booking it as quickly as possible and might not have thought that the day and time you make your booking can have a big impact on prices.
In fact, you can save a lot of money by carefully choosing when you book.
Let’s take a look at Google search data between 15/10/19 and 22/10/19.
The bars represent the amount of interest/searches for each day of the week. Sunday appears to be the most popular day for people to research what they’re going to book.
But surprisingly, Sunday isn’t when people do the majority of their bookings. It’s Monday. Because Monday is such a popular day, there’s a lot of competition in the market and that’s when you’re likely to get the best price.
The colours of the bars on the chart below indicate the best days to book, with Mondays and Tuesdays being the ones you should aim for.
As well as the day you book, prices are also affected by the time you book. So when’s the best time?
If you live in the UK, you’ll find that prices are best in the morning before the USA wakes up and with extra demand, drives prices up.
You can save a decent amount of cash on hotels, flights, airport parking and holidays by carefully planning when you buy.
