I'm in a quandary. Here I am, an inexperienced traveler on a business trip, trying to make a side trip from Nashville to Houston next Friday, 10/26, for a close friends wedding.
Here's the thing: the ticket from TN to TX was $120 this Wednesday, but today (Friday) it's jumped to $300! Now I'm kicking myself and cursing the airline gods for their cruelty.
So here's my question: I know that tickets are cheaper on certain days of the week, so maybe I wait till this Tuesday to buy my ticket. But I also know last minute tickets can get real pricey, and that would only be 3 days before my flight.
So what do you guys think is the right move here? Do I buy my ticket ASAP and pay the Friday night price, or do I wait for a weekday right before my flight date and hope the price drops down?
Experienced business travelers, my electricity bill will thank you for your advice!
