Thanksgiving may still be three months away, but experts say now is the time to start making your travel plans – especially if you want to save a few bucks!

Consumer Reports says you can find the lowest holiday airfares if you book travel before early September.

It also reports that flexibility can help when searching for inexpensive fares.

For instance, returning on a Tuesday or Wednesday can help keep prices down.

And according to the online travel search engine Skyscanner, in the past, some great Thanksgiving travel deals have been found two to three weeks prior to the holiday.
