Which are the best air travel packages for the winter?
In the months before Thanksgiving, the average American family gets their airfare in the form of a ticket, not the check-in process.
If you’ve ever traveled on a vacation, or maybe you just bought a ticket and have a friend or relative waiting for you, you’ll have no trouble figuring out which airfare packages are the most expensive for your trip.
While the cheapest airfare is still free, you’re not going to find the most luxurious ones on sale for a reasonable price, even if you buy in bulk.
Here are the cheapest, most common airfare options for a typical family trip, according to an infographic from Travel.com.
