Looking to get away? The cheapest time to fly is almost here!

The insane Holiday travel period is behind us and with everyone settling into their everyday lives once again, the airlines are left with lots of available seats – which means great deals coming your way.

As ABC7 notes, the cheapest travel period of the year starts about January 9 and lasts through February and sometimes even extends into March before people start taking trips again for Spring Break.

So, if you didn’t blow your bank account on gifts and booze for Christmas or a bunch of legal marijuana on New Year’s Day, this might be the ideal time to look at getting the hell out of town for a couple of days.

The best deals can be had by departing Wednesday and returning on Tuesday, according to USA Today.  Your next best bet is leaving Tuesday and returning Saturday, followed by a Wednesday through Tuesday trip.

So where should you go?  Travel and Leisure claims some of the best deals for January and February are for Hawaii, Australia, and Hong Kong.  Los Angeles is also a solid deal for January traveling, so if you are looking for a road trip instead of a flight, that might be the way to go.

You can check out fares at sites like CheapoAir, HotWire, and Orbitz.

Have a great trip!
