Your airfare will be cheaper if you book it during this season

Travelers, here is some good news.

If you're looking to book a flight in the fall, you're in luck. According to a new report by Hopper, domestic roundtrip airfare is expected to drop 8.2 percent this fall. The study attributed the blame to the declining costs to the falling jet fuel costs.

items to avoid buying at the airport
Wi-Fi
Wireless internet is often a necessity in order to keep in contact with your loved ones. Before you make the decision to purchase it at an airport, however, check to see if there is a local Starbucks or coffee shop where Wi-Fi will more than likely be free to use. 
Souvenirs 
If you're looking for a last-minute gift then purchasing a souvenir from a shop inside the airport may be necessary. If you are able to stop beforehand, you may want to avoid buying a gift from the airport. Oftentimes, airports will increase the price of souvenirs that can probably be found somewhere else for a more reasonable price. 
Bottled Water 
You may not realize it, but on average, bottled waters inside airports are about three dollars. You can avoid this trap, however, by purchasing a reusable water bottle or even emptying your water bottle before you go through the security checkpoint and refilling at a fountain once you get inside. 
Neck Pillow
This is a common item that can be purchased online. If you aren't able to, however, buy one before you get to the airport to avoid paying double the market price for one. 
Snacks 
Much like many of the other items on this list, snacks are extremely overpriced in airports. The best deal is to buy snacks in bulk and bring a few with you to last throughout your flight.
Books
Reading a book is a perfect way to pass time while waiting for your flight -- but if you purchase a book at the airport, don't be surprised if it happens to be 40 to 50 percent higher than what it would be in a bookstore. 

Foreign Currency 
As convenient as it may be, you should try to avoid exchanging your money at an airport. Many times, airport transactions fees are much higher than if you were to pull money from the ATM at your destination.

In July, jet fuel prices were cut about 7 percent, making it the cheapest it's been since 2009. Due to the low fuel rates, Hopper predicts the cheapest months to book tickets this year will be September through November -- estimating prices to drop as low as $213 in October.
