Top tips for finding a cheap flight out of Boston (BOS)

Purchase your flights during the Goldilocks Window

Despite what you might have heard, we maintain that there isn’t a specific time of day or even day of the week when airfare is magically cheaper. We know, however, that there’s often a sweet spot before any flight when ticket prices tend to be at their cheapest. This sweet spot is around 1-3 months before domestic trips and 2-8 months before international trips, and we call it the Goldilocks Window.

While the Goldilocks Window is the perfect starting point for most travel planners, there are situations when you should book even further in advance—for travel over a busy holiday or during the peak travel season, for instance. In those cases, you should add a bit more time to the equation. And, whatever you do, try to book before the 21-day, 14-day, and 7-day points before departure because airlines nearly always raise prices at those dates.

Give the Greek Islands Trick a try

Don’t be distracted by our nickname for this money-saving trick—it works just as well for places all over the world. The Greek Islands do, however, make for an easy illustration of how it works.

If you’re dreaming of a holiday in Santorini, you might be dismayed by fares that start at $1,500 roundtrip and go up from there. But if you fly into London instead, you might get a fare that’s $300 or less roundtrip. So, even when you tack on a separate roundtrip flight from London to Santorini for $150, you’re still saving a nice chunk of change.

The idea of the Greek Islands Trick is to get as close as possible to your desired destination for cheap, which usually means looking at major international gateway airports in nearby countries. Then, you can book a short flight on a budget carrier, a train trip, or even a ferry ride to get where you really want to be. Yes, it requires a little more logistical juggling on your part, but the savings usually make it worth the effort.

Zoom out on the map to consider alternate airports

When you live in a city like Boston with a major airport, you may not think to look at departures from other airports, but if you’re not having much luck with a cheap fare from Logan, it’s always worth widening your net and checking out the deals from airports near and far.

There are frequently superb deals on flights from NYC’s trio of nearby airports, some of which may make the 4-hour drive or a $60 flight worthwhile. But this isn’t just about looking at airports within driving distance from Boston. Given that we’ve found shockingly low fares—like a $63 roundtrip ticket from Atlanta to Chile—it pays to keep an eye out for airfare deals so good that adding a separate domestic flight to your itinerary feels like a very smart move, indeed.

Plan your flights when it’s cheaper to fly

Most travelers know that there are certain times of year in any destination that are considered its peak season when crowds are bigger and prices generally higher. If you want to travel for less, then it’s smart to avoid the high season and to keep your travel plans flexible. In other words, pick your travel dates based on when airfare is cheapest.

Of course, peak seasons are popular for a reason. Summer, for instance, means everyone is out of school, and the weather is perfect for the beach holiday you’ve been dreaming of. So, if your vacation days can’t be moved around, at least try to avoid flying on the most expensive days of the week (Fridays and Sundays). Aim instead for the days when tickets are typically cheaper (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays).

Put technology to work for you

Who has the time to constantly be searching for airfare bargains? It can be something of a full-time job (and we should know). Instead of losing all your free time to a frantic search, set up an email fare alert for the trip you want to take. Then, when the price drops into the range you want, you’ll get an email letting you know. Do this a few months in advance, and you’ll be able to track prices as they go up and down. Just keep in mind that if you’re considering multiple trip options, you’ll have to set up multiple alerts. On the other hand, you could join Going and let us do the work for you.

How early should I arrive to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) before my flight?

As a general rule, you should get to your airport about two hours before a domestic flight and about three hours before an international flight. Depending on your specific trip details and travel situation, though, you may be able to cut that down a bit.

How big is the airport, and where is your gate? With four separate terminals, Boston Logan is a fairly large airport. Getting from place to place requires a combination of shuttles and walking, so it may take you longer than you’d expect to reach your gate—especially if your gate is at the far end of a concourse.

Do you need to check in or check any bags at the airport? There are cutoff times set by the airline, after which no more passengers can check in for a flight or check any luggage. For checking in, it’s usually 30-60 minutes before departure. For checked bags, it’s usually 45-60 minutes before departure.

How busy will the airport be? Logan’s website says they strive to keep wait times at security checkpoints to 15 minutes or less, but if you’re traveling on a busy day or over a holiday, you should allow for more time to get through security.

Given all the things that can contribute to delays at the airport, we recommend getting to Boston Logan at least one hour before your flight—although 1.5-2 hours is going to be the best idea most of the time.
