When should I book my plane tickets?
You want to go on vacation but you do not want to break your piggy bank? Here is a simple guide to avoid spending all your money on airline tickets.
When should I go ?
The most logical thing but it is worth repeating: the usual months of holidays will be the most expensive (especially for the destinations related to these seasonings). Going to the beach in July / August or skiing in winter will have an impact on your budget. So prefer the off-season periods like June or September. Also look at specific holiday periods for your destination. To go to China during the Chinese New Year is, for example, not your cheapest options.
When should I book my tickets ?
Should you wait until the last minute to get your tickets? You can, but you play with fire. If you do not have a specific destination in mind, booking your tickets a few days, or even hours before your departure, can be a good plan. If, on the other hand, you want to go to a particular place, you have to be organised. Booking tickets 4 to 5 months in advance allows you to make very big savings!
Do not forget to look at several price comparators before making your choice, especially compare different periods if you can be flexible on your dates. And do not neglect your cookies! Delete cookies and clear the history of your search engines before returning to the same comparator! Prices can double in a few clicks!
