Booking Your Thanksgiving Travel

Are you planning on traveling for Thanksgiving? Did you already buy your tickets? This article on Yahoo! says that the best time to purchase airfare for Thanksgiving is the weeks leading up to Labor Day. Saying that "Thanksgiving airfares were at their most expensive in July and August".

If any of you have traveled during this time you know that it is one of the busiest times to travel (at least here in the states). 

Adam Goldstein, Hipmunk’s CEO, told Yahoo! Travel, “Historically, fares go up 35 percent a month from now, then up an additional 10 percent in another month, then 15 percent more another month from that.”

Here is a break down of how costs will rise for travelers looking to book their tickets.
$373 from now until September 1
$502 for a ticket booked from September 23 to 29
$539 from October 21 to 27
$592 from November 11 to November 17

When I was in college I would always book my flight home for thanksgiving as soon as I could because usually, in a college town, flights fill up really fast!

This year will be our first (since we've been married) Thanksgiving where we stay home. Our first we went to Key West, then the Big Island and then Kauai. Would have loved to go somewhere but we bought a house instead. 

Do you and your family have any special travel plans for Thanksgiving this year?
