Holiday airfares see sharp increase

Monday, November 08, 2010

Increased demand and fewer seats are sending prices up sharply this year.

FareCompare.com reports domestic fares are up an average of 17-percent for holiday season travel. Some routes have soared nearly 60-percent.

Priceline.com found the national average for Thanksgiving is $383. Christmas travel was even higher, averaging around $444.

Travel agents say the best way to cut down on your ticket price is to avoid flying on the most popular days, such as the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
