If you can hold out until just five weeks before your planned departure date before you buy your tickets, you’ll save yourself some cash, according to Skyscanner.
Despite the long-held belief that buying your tickets at the beginning of the year means cheaper flights, there is actually a better time to buy. Five weeks in advance seems to be the magic time to purchase your tickets, if you can manage to hold out that long. Of course, you should always check out patterns of cost for your individual destination to ensure you get the best deal.
Different destinations can have different lowest-price times. For example, from the UK to USA, tickets purchased 21 days in advance will be cheapest, compared to those between the UK and Spain, which should be purchased five weeks ahead of time.
