Best Day To Book and Fly To The Dordogne

According to Justin Ferris's article (April 24, 2017):

– The best day to book is on Tuesday or at the week end depending on the situation : "If you see one airline offering a deal on Monday, make plans to buy your tickets on Tuesday. If there are no deals going on, buy on the weekend."

– The best day to fly is early on Tuesday ("Friday and Sunday are the most expensive") or "any flight that coincides with lunchtime or dinner"
Flexibility seems to be the key to finding cheap airfares.
