I'm a travel expert – there are two days you should always fly on to avoid travel problems | The Sun

A TRAVEL expert has revealed the two days of the week you should always fly on to avoid travel problems.

Cancelled flights, lost luggage and long airport queues are just some of the issues Brits have faced this year during the chaos across the travel industry.

However, an expert has said there are two days of the week when problems are less likely.

Martin Jones, CEO and travel expert at Airport Parking Reservations said: "Over the last few years, flight cancellations have become increasingly frustrating, and seemingly unavoidable.

"Although any flight is technically liable for cancellation, recent trends have shown that flight cancellations typically coincide with how populated an airport is.

"Therefore, it could be worth considering travel on off-peak' days (Tuesday and Wednesday)."

He said Tuesday and Wednesday flights are also much quieter, as business travellers often fly at the start of the week while holidaymakers wait until the weekend.

Martin added: "As a result of the reduced demand for flying on these days, airfares prices are respectively lower – so it is a win, win situation."

He also said early flights are better too, as it avoids the "rush hour" of travellers during the main part of the day.

Not only are early flights less likely to be delayed, but they are also less likely to have turbulence.
