When’s the best time to book Christmas flights to London?

For the best savings, book in July. Booking six months in advance of any flight to London saves up to 5% on flights compared to the rest of the year. If you’ve missed this boat, booking later, around three or four months in advance (September or October) can still save you a fair bit.

The first week of December has great departure prices with the cheapest being on the 8 of December.

Those spending Christmas in London can opt to return to Australia from the 27-29 of December for great flight deals. Prices peak after New Year’s but start to fall from 15 December onward.


Tips and tricks to getting cheap Christmas flights to London

These top tips will help you save bundles of money to use in London instead of in the air.

Fly into a neighbouring city. London can often be cheap to fly into but cities such as Paris are usually the cheapest. Instead of booking a flight to London from Australia, book one to Paris and then fly to London from Paris on budget airlines such as Ryanair and EasyJet or take the Eurostar train for a quick and easy transfer.

Look to alternate airlines. Skip the popular airlines such as British Airways and Qantas to save big with more cost-effective airlines such as Asiana Airlines or China Eastern Airlines. A flight with one of these airlines can save you up to $600.

Take the long layover. Choose flights that have longer layovers and your savings could be huge. For example, at the time of writing, a flight from Sydney to London with a 19-hour layover in South Korea is $1,000 cheaper than a trip with a 50-minute layover in Singapore.

Fly on public holidays. If you’re not picky about having to celebrate Christmas Day or New Year’s Day on land, opt to fly on these days to save up to $100.
