Cheap International Plane TicketsInexpensive international airline tickets
Do you know that three fourths of Aussies on cheap international departures loose if they just book at the wrong hour? Let's not even start with inland targets - according to a Skyscanner survey, 9 out of 10 Aussies miss international trip deals and end up paying up to 30% more than the avaragefare!
For the sake of not wasting much, we've redesigned our Best Times to Book scheduling utility to incorporate more itineraries than ever before that will help experienced travelers earn more for their money in 2018! BTTB's recharged BTTB drill into two years of airline information to lead you to the greatest cost reductions for international and national travel.
Rather than discussing which weekday is the least expensive to buy, you should take this as a general guideline - the sooner you buy your airfare, the simpler it will be for your purse! Skyscanner's specs show 22 weekly in advance as a bargain sweetener but vary from town to town.
If, for example, you are a Sydneysider planning a kosmopolitan holiday in Hong Kong, you can get up to 12% off air fares by booking 23 week in advance. What's more, you can get up to 12% off air fares if you stay in Hong Kong for a week. Of course, there is a 7% saving on a Sydney to Los Angeles trip if you make your reservation 23 week in advance...but you can still live on the West Coast and get a 3% off 12week!
Here is a funny fact for home flyers - the best rates are often 21 week in front. Melbourne to Sydney is the most traveled destination in Australia, and most of us buy air travel without thinking about it. You could be saving a hefty 18% off the SYD-MEL fare if you booked 22 week in advance! However, home travel is not uniformly cheap all year round!
The best season to go - which season is the best for flying? We have searched the dates for the least expensive month to go, and the numbers don't lie. What do you mean? May is the best season to go to heaven! Saving an average of 13% on all national and international goals, it's something that' really valuable to plan your holiday.
During the holidays, fares rise by up to 32% on avarage - so if you feel like a Love Actually Airport experience, reserve your tickets as early as possible! So how else can you get cheap airfare? Whilst our Best Times To Book information can be a good indication of when you should buy your flight, there are other ways to look for cheap offers if you have certain trip details in view.
Conversely, if you're more day-sensitive, Skyscanner's all-month sight helps you find your flight and get a better picture of which day is best to go. As an alternative you can also get cheap international tickets from our International Deals Page or cheap national tickets from our National Deals Page.
