Flying around the holidays isn't cheap, but if you fly on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day (November 22 and December 25, respectively), you can save hundreds of dollars.

"Flying on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day is largely a reflection of supply and demand," Kevin O'Leary, senior analyst at Priceline, tells CNBC Make It. "More travelers fly the days prior to Thanksgiving and Christmas than on the day itself, and fares reflect this."

O'Leary analyzed Priceline's historical pricing data from 2017 and found that travelers who arrived on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day yielded the best flight deals overall. Travelers paid approximately $100 less per ticket on average. 

"We expect similar savings to be available this year," he says.
