What factors impact the cost of airline tickets?
Many factors can impact airline tickets including destination, fuel costs, date of travel, etc, however, the number one factor is “timing”. When you buy your ticket is very, very important. Although last minute specials can often yield a good price, don’t count on it. Try to buy your ticket at least 3 weeks before your expected departure date and compare prices at alternative airports close to your departure and destination city. For instance, if you are going to Disney World, check out both Tampa and Orlando for your arrival location.
