Cheap Flights in January FAQs

Will I find cheap flights in January?

January can be a great time to find cheap flights. That said, the price you’ll pay depends on your destination and where you’re traveling from. Popular ski towns and winter sun spots can be pricier than places enjoying their off-peak season. If you wait until the second week of January, when the New Year crowds have left, you can find great January flight deals. Prices and availability are subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
