Want to schedule a last-minute getaway before school starts, or start planning your autumn and winter travels? With summer slowly winding down, travel deals on airfare are heating up!

Starting Aug. 23, the peak summer travel season is officially over. Many schools are back in session and travel demand drops significantly. Depending on departure and destination, many fares are being lowered between 10 and 20 percent — sometimes more. 

For the best prices, choose your travel dates in the middle of the week – Tuesdays and Wednesdays — and try to avoid Fridays and Sundays, as those are often the busiest travels days.  Check with the various airlines to compare ticket prices, or use services such as Skyscanner.com.
