New study: Leave later for spring break to save money

(NBC) -

Spring break is right around the corner and to save on that airfare, FareCompare.com says there's just one thing you need to do:

Leave on the Tuesday of your spring break.

It priced fares of the popular Dallas to Orlando route in February and found traveling Sunday to Sunday would cost an average of $479, while traveling Tuesday to Sunday would cost $353.

So while many consumers choose to fly weekend to weekend to make every minute of their vacation count, FareCompare said delay your departure day to Tuesday and you'll save.
