If you're looking for ways to get the most out of your travel plans by spending the least this summer, look no further.

Based on data from thousands of flights, the folks at CheapAir have concluded that Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the cheapest days to fly this summer. On average, you'll save $64 if you fly on a summer Tuesday instead of a summer Sunday. It's also better if you just avoid the month of July as a whole: you'll save about $100 if you book your vacation for August instead.

For more destination-specific hacks, the team at Hopper figured out the best time to "fly and buy" this summer, narrowing down the cheapest weeks to take to the skies.

Because as Hopper says, "not all weeks are created equal for travel..."
