When's the best time to book Christmas flights to Asia?
This depends on the destination you are flying to and from, but generally you can get a good deal three to six months prior to the trip.
If you are travelling to Bali from Sydney, you'll score the biggest savings (up to 6%) when you book a Christmas flight in June.
If you fly from Melbourne, discounts are as high as 8%.
For a flight to Singapore, reservations in June and July get you up to 10% discounts from both Sydney and Melbourne.
According to AirAsia, Jetstar and Scoot all offer direct and indirect flights from across Australia to popular Asian cities. You can find unbelievable flight deals with these airlines, but keep in mind that their lead-in fares are for seats only, so you’ll pay extra for any checked luggage, meals and entertainment. Full-service airlines, including Qantas and Asian national carriers include the above in their fares, which are often very competitive, especially when there’s a sale on.
