Holiday Travel: Is It Crazy To Shop For Thanksgiving Tickets Now?

Believe it or not, the holidays are coming; but forget the turkey - now's the time to get your ducks in a row.

Is it crazy to start shopping for Thanksgiving airfare now?ᅡᅠ
It's not too early to start comparing prices but it is a little early to buy. Start purchasing Thanksgiving airfare when the kids go back to school - from the very end of Aug. through early Sept. - and your shopping window is good through mid-Oct. The earlier you buy this year, the better. In the meantime, plan out the rest of your holiday shopping strategy.
