Cheapest Time to Book a Flight 2
So, if your like me and you constantly search for cheap flights then you’ve probably done a lot of experimenting with different dates, incognito browsers, you get the gist. Well, I read somewhere this week in a Cheapair.com article that the best time to book your flights is EXACTLY 47 days before you fly

When's the cheapest time to book flights?

Pretty precise right? That’s exactly 7 weeks before departure and baffled me a little as I’d always understood it was cheaper to book 11 months in advance. Taking my fresh advise I put it to the test today and the results shocked me.

Taking a flight on the Friday 24th July to Bangkok with 1 stop from the UK was costing me a total of £995 return with Etihad. Expensive!
But .. if we take today’s date, and search for that same flight return on Friday 2nd October the results actually half! A return flight is costing me the grand total of £486.76.

I repeated this exercise for a number of different locations, all of which offering almost half the cost of my current dates! So guys, next time your booking flights remember the 7 week rule. Your welcome :)
