Hopper’s recommendations reflect the U.S. average price for a round-trip domestic flight. As you can see, depending on how far out you book, you can get airfare on either side of the $300-mark, with of course the highest ticket prices coming at the end of year.

But the average flight price around Thanksgiving and Christmas looks to be very reasonable, considering what those prices normally look like as we get closer to the holidays. So get online, find your favorite travel booking site and start comparing. With these prices, you can avoid buyer’s remorse altogether.
