By now, most people know that traveling on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays is not exactly budget-friendly and will usually result in paying additional fees or premiums for traveling on these “peak” days. Opting to travel on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday will give you the greatest chance of finding group travel discounts. These particular days of the week are less common travel days and will also ensure that airports, train terminals and ground transportation are less crowded than other days of the week.
Trying to navigate a crowded airport, and its requisite security checkpoints, with 100 students–luggage and instruments in tow–is not only challenging, but can be downright impossible. Keep stress and struggles to a minimum by traveling on an “off” day. Since Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays are notoriously slow, many airline and bus carriers will give travelers willing to book on these days discounts, incentives and other perks to ensure that they can still meet their travel quotas.
