This year, that day is August 23. According to FareCompare, this 鈥渕agic date鈥 is different every year, but it鈥檚 always toward the end of August. Why? Because that鈥檚 when kids go back to school, so there are less people flying; airlines respond by lowering their rates to get more people traveling.

Of course, it鈥檚 important to shop around to get the most savings, as not all airlines have the same deals going on. However, overall, fares can drop during this time up to 15 to 20 percent. But be warned, travelers! You鈥檒l want to jump on this quick, because after the *magical day*, you鈥檒l have to wait until subsequent price drops: mid-to-late October, the first two weeks in November and after the first week of January through mid-to-late March, according to the website.

The magical day falls on a Tuesday this year 鈥 which also happens to usually be the cheapest day to fly 鈥 so make sure to take off work and plan that end-of-summer vacation of your dreams ASAP!
