Gobble up These Thanksgiving Travel Tips, Say Experts at eDeals.com

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - November 8, 2010) -  Here's something to chew on while planning this year's Thanksgiving Day travel: airfares are expected to be almost 18 percent more expensive this year compared to last year. But no need to fret: the team at eDeals.com, the premier online coupon and deal site offering consumers an unmatched combination of savings and value, offers these great tips to find the best travel deal this Thanksgiving:

1. Book Early
Book immediately or as soon as possible: Travel gurus estimate Thanksgiving Day airfare to increase $5 each day you wait! In many cases last-minute deals might entice savvy travelers to hold off on purchasing tickets, but holidays are the exception. Wait and risk not getting the tickets you need (and we all know Auntie Lucy isn't going to hold off cutting the turkey just because Last-Minute Charlie waited to buy his ticket!).

2. Travel on Turkey Day
If your travel options are a little more flexible, flying out on Thanksgiving Day could be for you. A recent comparison we did of roundtrip non-stop flights from Tampa to Washington D.C. showed fares $50 cheaper for those flying out on Thanksgiving. For those who need a bit more family time, traveling on the day before Thanksgiving and returning on the Tuesday after could be the best bet for cheap flights.

3. Sign up for alerts
If you haven't signed up for travel deal alerts such as Fare Compare or Southwest Ding, then do so now so the best fares appear immediately in your in-box or mobile device. And always check the eDeals.com travel section to compare prices from more than 200 travel sites.
