When’s the best time to book Christmas flights to Manila?
The best time to book flights to Manila for the Christmas season is June to August because this is when most airlines offer early-bird discounts on December flights.
If you book three months before your departure, you can save up to 7% on your airfare, based on the findings of the Skyscanner Best Time to Book tool. Don’t worry if you couldn’t book your flight in this period since you can still nab reasonable fares in late November when travelling from Brisbane or Perth.
Fares are considerably cheaper if you depart on or before 15 December. The return fares begin dropping from 1 January onwards.
Booking accordingly will help you save more, in case you plan to spend the whole holiday season in Manila or somewhere else in the Philippines.
Tips and tricks for getting cheap Christmas flights to Manila
Try these tricks to save more on your flight bookings to Manila in the Christmas season.
- Book in advance: Plan your holiday in Manila early to get significant savings on your flight booking. Manila is a popular destination among Australians, so planning ensures you get cheaper flight deals.
- Use budget airlines: Cebu Pacific often has the lowest direct fare to Manila when compared to carriers like Qantas and Philippine Airlines.
- Travel on New Year’s Day or Christmas Day: Few people travel on the Christmas Day or New Year’s Day as these are unpopular with those wanting to reach their destination before the festivities. If you are flexible with your travel dates and don’t need to be in Manila before Christmas Day, you can travel on the day itself to save money on your flight.
