When is the best time to book international flights for a family holiday?

LUXE_J114_109-e1488858664142.jpg

When it comes time to plan an international family holiday, one of the most important questions after “where to go?” is “when to book?” With increased competition and low-cost carriers, airfares are getting cheaper and cheaper; however, when you’re booking flights for the entire tribe, it’s still important to snag the best deal possible. So when is the best time to book flights for an international family holiday? The short answer is sooner rather than later! While last minute deals could be tempting, tickets fluctuate in price so frequently that it’s a bit of a gamble – plus, school holidays sell out very quickly.

If you want to keep your eye out for your next holiday, we’ve put together a list of the most popular destinations from Australia, the best times to book, and airlines that offer deals frequently.

Best time to book flights to Bali

BALC_F115_052.jpg

Bali is Australia’s favourite holiday destination, and as a result, you can usually snatch up a great deal on flights to Denpasar. However, because the route is so popular, you’re best to book flights to Bali at least five months in advance for peak periods, as seats fill up quickly.

Full service airlines like Garuda have made a comeback in recent years, offering reasonable fares year-round as well as great baggage allowance and meals. However, the firm favourite is Jetstar – especially given the short flight time. To get the best deal, sign up to Jetstar’s email newsletters and book on a Friday, as their ‘Friday Fare Frenzy’ often includes great offers.

Best time to book flights to Phuket

PHUC_F207_038.jpg

Phuket is quickly becoming one of the hottest holiday destinations in Asia, and this demand is driving down prices as there are multiple flights departing daily. But, like Bali, you have to get in quick for a good deal, as often seats on sale are snatched up quickly leaving only the more expensive allocations – especially for travel in December and January.

If you’re looking for a full service airline, book with Singapore Airlines or Malaysia Airlines, which have great deals in the off-season and are great with families.

Best time to book flights to the Maldives

KANC_A115_025.jpg

There aren’t any direct flights available from Australia to the Maldives as of yet, however the connections are relatively easy and the total flight takes around 14 hours at its shortest. When booking the Maldives, often you’re best looking for flights with Singapore Airlines, Etihad or Cathay Pacific, as they can arrange connecting flights directly to Male.

Cathay Pacific have early bird airfares in August for flights heading to the Maldives in peak season (January to April). Similarly, Singapore Airlines and Etihad open early bird sales in September of every year – a great opportunity to grab a good deal on your flight.

Best time to book flights to Europe

PVAC_L113_002.jpg

If you’re travelling within school holidays to Europe, it’s recommended that you you’re your flights well in advance as prices can soar as your departure looms closer. Generally, flights can be booked just under one year prior to departure, and the sooner the better to Europe.

The best deals for Europe in summer often pop up from September through to November, for travel the following year. If you’re looking to hit the slopes for a European ski holiday, book a flight just before July for the best prices for the upcoming ski season.

Best time to book flights to the USA

The early bird catches the worm when flying to the US! According to research by Skyscanner.com.au, the best time to book your US adventure is 28 weeks in advance, which could save you almost $500 per ticket.

Qantas and Virgin are firm favourites for direct flights to the East Coast, offering reputable service for a good price.

Additional tips to help you book your family’s flights

We know it can be pretty overwhelming when looking for the best deal on flights, especially with the whole family in tow. Use these clever tips to make your life a little easier…

  • ✔️ Hopper’s Airfare Predictions App uses historical data to tell you when the best time is to book your flight. It’ll also notify you when your desired route is about to go up in price.

  • ✔️ Sites such as Skycanner, Kayak and Webjet allow you to compare flight costs and times to help you make the right call. They’re also great if you want to book multi-city trips or to combine airlines.

  • ✔️ Subscribe to the email list of all the major airlines if you’re gearing up for a holiday. They’ll send their best flights to you first – especially if you’re in their frequent flyer program!

  • ✔️ Search for the best deals on different IP addresses. Cookies stored in your computer allow airlines can track which routes you’re interested in and hike up the prices accordingly!
