You can go to a site like which lets you type in different dates for your proposed trip. You can try out different times of day, different days of the week, and even different months of the year to see what’s cheaper.

By going to France in March instead of June, we saved nearly $2,000 on our 4 tickets combined. It’s true that the weather wasn’t as nice there in March. But we also didn’t have to deal with as long lines for attractions, since there weren’t too many other tourists around.

We were lucky that our children had a vacation from school at that time, so they only missed 3 days of school. We told their teachers in advance and the only downside was that they had to bring homework on the trip.
