Now, you can also backpack away on a spontaneous trip like Kangana Ranaut in Queen
Do you get annoyed when your dad keeps reminding you to book your tickets in advance? Well, turns out he may be on to something. Global travel search engine, Skyscanner, analysed two years’ worth of travel search data from over 50 million monthly users to answer the one questions that always puzzles travellers: when is the best time to book flights? Their survey revealed that 69 per cent of travellers incorrectly estimate the best air fares can be found less than 12 weeks before departure, when in fact the best deals are snapped up by travellers who plan in advance.
Here's their assessment of the months that works best for a trip. With the early summer and late winter vibe, February seems to be a clear winner.
From Srinagar to Singapore and even Paris, the survey also spills deets on how many weeks in advance you should start your booking. Reshmi Roy, senior growth manager of the travel portal, said, “We hope Skyscanner’s data can provide travellers with clarity on how and when to get the best deal on flights and what to expect if booking is left to the last minute. After reviewing flight prices from the last two years, we can clearly see that it pays to plan. Booking at the right time can make a huge difference to one’s expenditure on their trip, up to 51 per cent in some cases.” Whoa! So, start planning already.
