How to predict an airfare sale in India

All days are created equal. But some are more equal that others.

Have you noticed that booking a flight ticket on some days are better than others? Airlines come up with airfare sales at seemingly random intervals. But what if I told you that a great sale can be predicted?

Booking ahead may not always be the smartest option:

Let’s say, you have planned a trip and are to fly in about 3 months time. When you go to book your flight, how do you know you are getting the lowest fares? Even though you are searching for an advance purchase, the airline may be in a period of high fares before going into an airfare sale. You could actually lose out by booking ahead, only to find that a week later, the airline has declared an airfare sale!

Finding the better days to book your flight:

In order to determine how good or bad the airfare is for any given day, you need to know where the airfare stands against the scale of low airfares for that airline. I know, not an easy task to track so many airfares, is it?

Introducing UnfareScore:

UnfareScore is a dynamic index with a scale of 0-100. For any given airline, a score of below 50, signifies a good deal. Anything above 50, indicated that you should consider waiting for the airfare sale. Of course, this only applies when you have at least 45 days to your flight. Also, for specific airfare predictions, you can use the Unfare prediction tool.

UnfareScore is a free feature of Unfare that also provides details on how many days it has been since the last airfare sale, average number of days for an airfare sale, etc. Do check it out today!
