According to Travelocity, prices will be higher this year. The travel website predicts the average round-trip domestic airfare, including tax, will be $415. That would be a near seven percent increase from last year.
Travelocity said that $415 is the price to beat this year and should be used as a gauge in shopping for airfare. The website offered these tips for holiday travel:
-Book between Oct. 8 through Nov. 9.
-Be flexible on travel dates.
-Search alternate airports
-Take the first flight of the day.
-Pack smart and light.
