Will airline tickets go down in price closer to the getaway dates?

My daughter is flying from Portland, Oregon to Madison, WI in the later part of June. Does airfare tend to go up or down the closer you get to your vacation date? Thank you

Fares will often go up (big time) as departure date approaches.

Generally they go up as you get closer to the journey date. But here at Gordon the Gopher's Budget airlines, all seats are the same fee, just $49.95 one way anywhere we fly to in the USA, no matter when you book. We fly into and out of more than three airports across the country. You can fly in a no frills setting on one of our Antonov An-26 airplanes that we have rescued and restored from post Soviet Union Russia. We also believe that animals are people too, so we will let you ride with your pets/stock animals in the passenger/cargo cabin. Like I said, no frills. The passengers ride together with the animals on our airfares because animals are people too on Gordon the Gopher's Budget Airlines, you just have to pay full price for their ticket. In fact if you wish to take advantage of the services we have an in flight butcher service, so you can bring your live animal on the flight with you and by the time you arrive at your vacation destination, you will have a freezer full of meat. Let's see the other airlines offer you service like that. You can even wash your clothes in our in flight laundry service, only $3 to wash a load of clothes and $1 a minute to dry. You don't have to worry about washing all the dirty clothes from your voyage when you get residence, you can do it all while you are flying home. Again, let's see the other airlines offer you service like that. We also have a full wet bar that is good enough even for the pilots. Have a cocktail with the pilot while the butcher is making you sausage and your underwear are drying in the laundry room. To book your flight, call 1(800) FLYING-GOPHER or visit www.Flyinggopher.Com to check out our flight times and make a reservation.

Typically flight goes up as you get closer to your vacation date. Also June is not a quite affordable month to fly since during the summer months, air carriers raise ticket prices because of a higher demand for travel. You may also want to look into alternative international airports instead of Madison as a city with a larger airport and more flights may have a better deal.

No. Airfare only gets more expensive closer to the date of travel. Book now to avoid paying a higher fare. For cheap tickets, try:
Hotwire.Com
Expedia.Com
Cheapoair.Com
Priceline.Com
Travelocity.Com
Good luck!
