Now that spring break is over we start thinking about the next vacation, most people don’t start booking their summer hols until after Memorial Day, at the end of May, but earlier booking can mean more options and greater savings.
I know this advice is a little late for this year, but November is a great time to buy flights for the following year. During black Friday/cyber Monday when most people were looking for deals on electronics and other giftware airlines were also offering some amazing deals on travel for the new year. I nabbed two tickets from Los Angeles to London over spring break for a lot less than the usual price for one!
It meant some fast decision making and several hours booking and rebooking as tickets went fast and I had to work around school vacation, but to save more than a THOUSAND dollars it was well worth it.
We booked with Air New Zealand, this was my first flight with them and I was impressed. A couple of other airlines that are worth looking into for good prices on flights to Europe are Iceland air WOW and Norwegian air.
If you didn’t already book now is a great time to start planning as flight prices are usually at their best around 100 days in advance.
For the best rates try to fly midweek, if you must fly on the weekend Saturday is usually better priced than Friday and Sunday flights.
