1. WHICH DAY IS THE CHEAPEST TO FLY INTO SAN DIEGO?

Finding Cheap flights to San Diego may be a scary, especially if you’re flexible on the dates. Typically people have a certain amount of days that they’re free. However, if you’re trying to save money and are flexible, than not knowing which day to fly can suck.

So, based on research, TUESDAY is said to be the least expensive day to fly! However, this is not a hard and fast rule. It is always smart to do a search looking at the entire week or if you have the flexibility in your schedule, the whole month for flight options to your destination. Each place is different but on a whole, weekdays are going to give you cheaper rates.
