The holiday season is just around the corner, and if you’re traveling for Thanksgiving, the time to start searching for flights is now. CheapOair’s Thanksgiving data shows that the average roundtrip domestic airfare this Thanksgiving is $391, up only 1 percent from last year. And the good news is, if you book soon, you’ll find fares well under this average.

Flights to Seattle this Thanksgiving are a more affordable alternative to New York. If you’re traveling on a budget, Seattle’s Macy’s Parade, holiday tree lighting, Black Friday sales and more will offer you many of New York’s popular holiday celebrations at lower prices.

Other destinations coming in below the average are Fort Lauderdale (think: year-round beach weather) and Atlanta, where you can experience traditions like the Pink Pig, Macy’s Great Tree Lighting, and midnight shopping at the North Point Mall.
