When it comes to Thanksgiving travel, all days are not created equal.
Travel industry insiders say that when you fly is almost as important as when you book.
Flying on Thanksgiving Day itself is usually a bargain, but there are other days that are also fairly cheap.
Next to flying to your destination on Thanksgiving Day and returning the following day (Friday, November 23), the cheapest date combo is departing on Thanksgiving Day and returning the following Tuesday (November 27).
And, if you want to avoid Thanksgiving Day for flights altogether, your best bet is to get out of town Monday, November 19th and return the day after Thanksgiving. (ABC News)
