When to buy air tickets..

We all wonder what will be the optimal time to buy an air ticket. It typically is a couple of weeks beforehand, but if you have already missed that, there is this new website http://www.farecast.com which helps.

The site gives a graph of fares for your destination across a few months, and gives you recommendations on whether they are expected to rise or fall. They recently added a lot of cities (were only seattle previously), and chances are you will find your city there.

A really useful "web 2.0" website which is not about social networking :).


  1. Yeah :-) This website started with Boston and Seattle. It's out of USC and U of Wash in Seattle. They have some 6 billion records to predict. And they are also trying to come up with Hotel fares prediction.

    www.farecompare.com is good too, not as sharp as the one you have cited.

    Use farecast along with kayak.com and jetblue and southwest, and you have the cheapest fare on the web
