Charles said: “Generally, you’ll find cheaper flights by booking three to four months in advance of the date you’re intending to travel on.
“If you allow yourself to be flexible and forward plan, searching via month will help you to find the cheapest flights to your chosen destination.
“In some cases, you can find good last minute flights, especially if you’re not particular on exact dates when you start your search.
“If you’re stuck to certain time frames, such as school holidays, being flexible on the airline provider will also allow you to find cheaper rates, because budget airlines often don’t include add-ons in their initial cost.”
“Some airlines offer package deals which include flights, hotels, baggage, coach transfers and more, so it’s worth considering the option if you want a bargain.”
He added: “For those lucky enough to be able to travel outside of the school holidays, you’ll always be able to find cheaper flights by sticking to term time.
“Take advantage of off-peak months and do your research into when the school holidays fall ahead of your planning.
“If you don’t want to be stung, make sure to also look out for any major sporting events that might be happening around the time of your holiday.”
