LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Here are some tips on how to save money when you are buying plane tickets.

If you want to find the cheapest fares, you need to get up early.

According to Lifehacker.com, the best time to buy tickets is between 5 and 6 a.m.

Their report is based on new analysis by the travel website Expedia.

The most expensive time to buy is between 7 and 10 p.m.

The best day to book now is on Sunday. It used to be on Tuesday.

The most expensive day is still Friday.

Many travelers like to book their flights months in advance. Unless you catch a sale though, this is not a good idea.

Fares are usually the lowest 3 weeks before the day you want to travel. But, don't wait too long. The cost goes up in the last two weeks before departure.
