Airline Prices Soar As Holidays Approach

Posted: Updated:

If you're planning on doing some holiday traveling, you might be paying premium prices.

It's nothing new that plane ticket prices soar around the holidays, but this year it seems to be having a big impact on people trying to leave Bismarck. According to local travel agents, it's the availability of seats that drive ticket prices up, and travelers trying to get to places like Mexico and Hawaii could be paying almost three times as much a ticket than if they would have booked during the summer.

"I did a families vacation this past Monday out of Bismarck to Mexico. Typically, if a person is flexible and they're able to travel mid-week, we're still finding airline prices at $600. However, for this family wanting to go the Sunday before Thanksgiving and coming home the Saturday after Thanksgiving, one of the most popular days to travel, their airline tickets out of Bismarck we're $1,200. So again, it's not that air prices are higher necessarily. It's all about availability," says Brenda Rogerson, Sartom Travel and Tour.

Rogerson says if you are planning on travelling during the holidays it is best to book flights during June and July.
