I know the kids just started back to school, but the Holidays are quickly approaching. I saw someone post over the weekend that there are less than four months until Christmas! This year has flown by and in the blink of an eye we will be pulling the turkey out of the oven on Thanksgiving. 

Google is trying to help those who travel for the Holidays save money by giving consumers a heads up on the best time to buy flights. They've crunched the data to give you the best time to book your holiday flights. 

If you are looking for flights for Thanksgiving, you need to start looking now into the beginning of September before prices increase. Buy early is the rule, as flights increase in price 75 days in advance of departure and again at 35 days before. 

Also, try not to travel home on the weekene after Thanksgiving. Extending your trip into Tuesday or Wednesday can save you significant bucks. Also consider flying the day of Thanksgiving because these flights also tend to be a bit cheaper. This is a great option for those flying somewhere not too far away. You can save money and be there in time for Turkey and all the fixin's! 

Where will you be traveling this Holiday season?
