Travel Tuesdays? Not So Much.

A few months ago, I learned that the best time to search for low cost airfare is on a Tuesday, specifically at 3pm EST.  Of course, as is often the case, because I want to look for fares at 3pm EST every Tuesday, I always forget to look for fares at 3pm every Tuesday.  Well, yesterday I remembered.  And I searched.

And searched.

And searched.

I used Kayak, I checked out actual airline websites, I stalked travel discount sites on Twitter and Facebook and in my inbox.  And do you know what?  I found nothing.

The ‘cheapest’ trans-Atlantic fare for travel in July was over $1200.  Anywhere Caribbean–over $400.  California?  Around $600.  Seriously?  We flew to London last summer for $695.

Oh–and remember that fare to Phoenix I found last week for $117?  It is three times that now.  Damn.  I will not hesitate again.  Ever.
