When is the best time to buy airline tickets to Aruba from Newark NJ? Did I miss out on the best price already? Should I wait or book asap?
For what dates?
Jet Blue out of JFK has been consistently cheaper than anything out of EWR. My rule of thumb has always been two months out, but looking at the increased demand of Aruba I'm gonna settle for $700 real soon. I'm flying out weekend before Thanksgiving which can be expensive. If you're seeing anything near $500 jump on it if you ask me.
Saturday to Saturday will be peak pricing and EWR prices are brutal then. +$1100 plus. I'd definitely wait on that, can't get any worse. Again JFK is much better, in this case $500 cheaper. American at $630 isn't bad for Saturday travel. I prefer EWR because of the drive, but I actually like flying out of JFK better.
(How I wish any of the 4 airports upstate near me offered anything close to reasonable flights. I drive the 3 hours to the city instead.)Edited: 05 August 2018, 05:19
I would look out of JFK.. that is Jersey Week off so EWR will run high. Crazy, Stupid high. Fights on Jetblue that day still have tons of seats.. those prices will come down.
Other airlines post fares before JetBlue. We got great fares out of EWR. Traveling during School vacation, February.
If you can fly in and out on a monday it would be under 600.Most of the seats on the sunday united nonstop flights are taken so there’s not much chance of them dropping.
Thank you everyone for your advice. I was in a panic and it was great to get so many responses so quickly.
Enjoy your journey's!
