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

The golden rule about flight tickets might be the earlier you book, the cheaper the fare but that's not so true with flights to Bangkok according to Skyscanner data.

For Christmas flights your cheapest flights come out between October and the beginning of November. If you're flying out of Sydney, your sweet spot is the first week of October while from Perth waiting as late as November can save you up to 6%.

You can take advantage of cheaper flights scheduled before 6 December (one-way prices starting from less than $300). After this date, one-way fares rise to $300+ until 20 December and up to $420 right before Christmas.

Return journeys towards the end of December and around 10 January cost close to $400.

For the rest of January, one-way fares usually range between $250 and $400.


Tips and tricks to getting cheap Christmas flights to Bangkok

Along with timely booking, the following tips will help you to get a better deal:

  • Consider alternate routes: You can score significant savings by booking connecting flights to Bangkok. Sometimes, price differences between one-stop and direct flights can be a few hundred dollars for a return trip. Flying to Bangkok with stopovers in Singapore or Kuala Lumpur is usually 20-30% cheaper than a direct flight during the Christmas season.
  • Choose budget airlines: The cheapest airlines flying to Bangkok are Scoot, AirAsia and Jetstar. These airlines offer you as much as 40% savings compared to all-inclusive airlines like Qantas and Emirates.
  • Uses flight search engines: Flight search engines are wonderful tools that let you compare different flights across various airlines. They also let you play around with dates to find the cheapest ones. Recommended flight search engines are Skyscanner and I Want That Flight.
