For cheap airfares, the best time to book tickets is at least 3 months in advance. After that, ticket prices tend to slowly increase as your departure date approaches. Book 3-5 months in advance for short-haul flights, 5-6 months for medium-haul flights and 8 months for long-haul flights.
Combine low cost airlines
Low cost airlines are usually the cheapest option for plane tickets. We automatically include 70 low cost airlines in all our searches. Why not combine flights from two different low cost airlines for a return trip? For example, you could save around 70% on a return journey to Singapore by flying onboard AirAsia one way and Scoot the other.
Keep your dates flexible
The best tip for most comprehensive search results? Search using the +/- 3 days option. Avoid flying during national school holidays and on weekends. Book flights that take-off mid-week and return on Monday (never Sunday). Return flights Sydney-Perth could be 50% cheaper on trips made Monday to Thursday.
Find out when flight fares change
No worries if you find it difficult to keep up with the constantly changing airfares. Just set up some fare alerts on liligo.com. It’s really the best way to keep track of the prices so you’ll know exactly when to book. Choose when you want to receive the updates: daily, weekly or only when the flight price changes by a certain amount.
