It’s an age-old question – “When is the best time to book flights?”
How early in advance should you book to secure the best price? Should you hold off in case there’s a sale? Will prices skyrocket if you don’t just bite the bullet now?
Data released by KAYAK identifies the ideal time to book your trip. Based on recent travel trends and price tracking, this is as close to a crystal ball as we’re going to get. No one can tell you the exact date and time to hand over your digits and secure that flight (although travel experts swear 3am on Thursday mornings is the golden hour), but this chart is a great guide.
Our infographic spells it out for you below. Can’t find your destination on the list? Visit the KAYAK website for more.
