Baton Rouge- Travel experts are disproving the myth that the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day.

According to the Department of Transportation, the actual busiest day for travelers is in the summer, and every year it's a different day. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect flight home for Thanksgiving.

Typically the highest airfare rates happen on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving or the Sunday after. In order to avoid these high rates, some travel experts suggest booking a flight for Thanksgiving day.

A flight on Thanksgiving morning can end up saving you hundreds of dollars and get you on the ground in time for a Turkey dinner with your family.

Connecting flights can also help your wallet, but beware of severe weather that could cause delays and flight cancellations.

You should also make sure to always consider baggage fees. If you're not packing light, choosing an airline with high baggage fees could end up costing you big time.
