The single most important part of a trip is planning it. That’s why Pacifico Airport Valet parking compiled a few tips on booking your flight or hotel. You will get some ideas on the best time to book, where to book, and how to get a good deal.

Best Time to Book a Flight or Hotel

AVOID PEAK HOURS (AND HIGHER PRICES)

As it turns out most people book flights and hotel rooms during their free time including lunch time and weekends. Many airlines and hotels will increase their prices during lunch time and weekends. To get a better deal, try booking in the morning and on weekdays.

DESTINATION FACTORS (WHERE YOU WANT TO GO)

If your destination is popular during a specific the time period (like Hawaii or the Bahamas during the winter), be sure you book your flight and hotel room early. Don’t be afraid to book a flight at least a month in advance. Feel free to book your hotel room even earlier than that. You will find that most places allow you to cancel without a fee if you find a better hotel closer to your trip date.

BOOK ON A SPECIFIC NIGHT (LIKE A WEEKNIGHT)

Airlines usually increase their airfares over the weekend and decrease them beginning Monday. That means that by Tuesday night most flights have reached their lowest prices. Take advantage of this and book your flight on a Tuesday night. Hotels are different, Sunday night is generally the best night to book since it’s the end of the weekend (a hotel’s peak time).

Where to Book

Anymore it’s easy to use the Internet to find a good flight or hotel room. Consider skipping the travel agent and surf and bookmark the travel sites.

USE TRAVEL SITES

There are multiple travel websites (like Expedia or Orbitz) that let you compare airfares and hotel prices side-by-side so you can choose the best deal for your trip. Some even feature package offers, so spend some time looking around.

KEEP THE AIRPORT CLOSE

When you’re booking a hotel room, check out the places closest to the airport – they are often the most affordable.

How to Get a Good Deal

Everyone loves getting a discount of some type and getting a good/great deal. Try following these suggestions to save money:

WHEN BOOKING YOUR FLIGHT:

Whenever possible fly “unwanted” flights: Many people don’t like flying late at night (AKA the Redeye) or early in the morning. You can save money by scheduling a late or early flight, assuming it works with your schedule.

Fly on a Wednesday: Wednesday is the cheapest day of the week to fly, followed by Tuesday and Saturday.

WHEN BOOKING YOUR HOTEL:

Always ask for a discount: Sometimes hotels have rooms they want to get rid of and will lower their rate if you politely ask for a discount. The worst thing that can happen is they say no.

    I have always had a positive experience with their drivers and office staff. I also use the additional "drive away" from the terminal service. They load your bags and away you drive! Worth the extra $13 especially after a long flight!read more

    Fantastic experience. Quick check in and ride to the airport, and when we called on return, we were told it would be around a 20 minute wait (which was fine as our flight arrive early) but the driver arrived in about 10 minutes. I highly recommend them, as we have used them before.read more

    Everyone was super friendly and shared all the information I needed. It ended up being cheaper to use this short-term parking service than taking a taxi to and from the airport on either side of my trip. They brought back my car in perfect condition and right on time as expected. I highly recommend them!read more
