Top tips for finding a cheap flight to Salt Lake City (SLC)

Book in the Goldilocks Window

Looking for the best time to book a flight that’s not too far in advance nor too last minute? We call this the Goldilocks Window, that period when prices should be at their lowest. For domestic flights, that window falls just 1-3 months before departure, but with international flights, you have a little more room—2-8 months ahead of time is ideal.

Whatever you do, avoid booking around the 21-day, 14-day, and 7-day marks, when prices are almost guaranteed to go up. If you’re looking to travel during the high season—the summer months or around the winter holidays—that window changes slightly. Try to book in June or July for winter travel and December or January for a summer trip.

Search alternative departure airports

To get to Salt Lake City as cheaply as possible, you may want to look for flights departing from airports within a few hours’ drive rather than sticking to your closest airport. If you live in San Antonio, for example, search for flights to SLC from Austin, Dallas, and Houston, too. Sometimes a flight deal is worth it, even with the additional effort it takes to get to an airport a few hours away.

Fly when it’s cheaper

June, July, and August are generally considered the busiest travel months of the year, rivaled only by the days around the winter holidays. While it can be tempting to book a summer vacation, if you’re hunting for the best flight deals, you’ll want to avoid peak season and book in the quieter months instead. Lots of travelers mean higher prices, so stick to the shoulder seasons when you can.

If you have to travel during peak season, look for flights the first couple weeks of June or the last couple weeks of August for lower fares. Another trick is to book flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays to avoid the steep price tag of weekend getaways.

Set alerts for specific trips

Technology is a great tool for finding cheap flights, so if you want to keep an eye on a specific route (or a few), sign up for email alerts. That way, you can get notified when prices go down without having to manually search for flights yourself. You can also join Going, and we’ll send the best flight deals from your favorite airports directly to you.

SLC is a major Delta hub, as the airline accounts for about 70% of the airport’s traffic. There are 12 other airlines that fly out of Salt Lake City, though, and the airport is considered the 22nd busiest airport in North America, so if you live nearby, you have plenty of opportunities to find great deals.
