What is the cheapest time to fly to San Francisco?

San Francisco is such a popular city with visitors to the USA at any time of year, which generally means fares don’t change too much at different times. The main thing to look out for is American public holidays such as Thanksgiving and Independence Day, when people might be flying home to see their family and demand can drive up fares. You might also see prices become a little more expensive during the summer period (roughly between June and September) as this is a popular time to a visit. Travelling either side of that period (and not too close to Christmas) should net you cheaper San Francisco flights. If you’re able to be flexible, it’s always worth trying a few different dates to see if you can snag a bargain.
