7 On Your Side

Airfare deals pop up for Memorial Day getaway

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Hotel prices may be going up, but you might get a deal on your flight if you're planning a Memorial Day getaway.

According to a survey by Travelocity, you'll pay an average of $341 for a domestic flight, including taxes -- that is a 2 percent dip from last year.

Low demand for seats is pushing airlines to lower costs. But the closer we get to the date, the prices will go up.

This is especially true if you are traveling to New York City. According to Travelocity that's the number one destination for Memorial Day getaways the third year in a row.
