Avoiding the seasonal travel chaos? Here’s what you need to know.

According to travel trend tracker, RewardExpert, there are some days in March that travelers should avoid completely. March 1, 12, and 13 are historically the worst days to fly. Reportedly, it may be even worse for these particular dates in 2018. If you can avoid it, try and book your flight on a different day to save yourself the stress of overcrowded airports and endlessly long lines. Some other dates to avoid this season include: March 6, 30, and 31; April 3 and 7; and May 19 and 22.

April and May are often more favorable months to travel compared to March. RewardExpert notes that April 22 and May 28 may be the best days to book your flight.
