Whether you plan to stay stateside or go abroad, the odds are you'll have to book a flight. With fewer available seats to go around, the average price of a Thanksgiving domestic airline ticket is running $30 to $70 more than last year. Christmas travelers can expect to pay $35 to $80 more for an airline ticket home this holiday season according to

Tips & Bargains

1)Don't wait. Book ahead or you'll pay more
Travelers should book winter and holiday travel early to save money and avoid getting shut out from their favorite destination, as planes fill up, remaining seats will quickly become more expensive.

2)Fly off-peak days around the holidays
Avoid returning over the weekend; take Monday and Tuesday flights if you can.

3)Know when to book
Cheapest fares are available on Tuesdays. Airlines tend to release new fare sales early in the week, and last-minute airfares for the upcoming weekends are plentiful on Tuesdays as well.

4)Target off-season destinations.
Cruises and Tropical destinations are usually cheaper during Thanksgiving and Christmas season.

5)Buy insurance.
During busy travel periods, there’s a greater risk that things will go wrong. Lost luggage or a cancelled flight is far less aggravating when you know that you’ll be reimbursed. Travel insurance is relatively cheap and easy to buy online.

6)Fly early and non-stop.
Airport delays tend to pile up as the day wears on, creating afternoon logjams. Opting for an early-morning and, preferably, non-stop flight is your best defense against getting stuck in airport hell.
