What are the hours and when should I call?

Hotwire operates the call center for this 866-381-3981 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Tuesday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 116 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Hotwire phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Hotwire staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.
The least busy time to call
The least busy day to call Hotwire is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Friday, which averages 229% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 116 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.
The shortest wait on hold
We measured the shortest hold times to be on Tuesday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Friday.
The best time to call
In summation, the best day to call Hotwire is Tuesday. It isn't the least busy day, but the fact that hold times are shortest combined with it being on the busy side tells us that Hotwire staffs up on Tuesday to handle the higher call volume, and that makes it the best time to call.

More Ways to Contact Hotwire Customer Service

There are of course other ways to contact Hotwire customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.
Hotwire's website
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Hotwire customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
