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

The best time to discover early-bird offers and book cheap flights to Phuket is around July and August. According to Skyscanner, fares are about 8% lower when you book a flight from Perth to Phuket four months before the journey.

Don’t be disheartened if you miss the early-bird offers. You can still save around 6% after those offers expire. You can still get big savings up until a month to Christmas.

If you have planned a long break, you might consider travelling to Phuket before 13 December and returning after 27 December to get the best fares.

Tips and tricks for getting cheap Christmas flights to Phuket

Follow these tips to save further on your airfare to Phuket.

  • Fly in or out on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day: Flying on a popular holiday such as Christmas Day or New Year’s Day may be a depressing thought for many, and that’s exactly why you may get a healthy discount on the fare.
  • Fly with low cost airlines: If you are not brand-conscious and don’t mind not having a luxurious journey, opting for a low cost carrier may help you to shave a few hundred dollars on your flight to Los Angeles. Popular budget airlines that fly into Phuket include Jetstar and AirAsia.
  • Look for alternative routes: If you can’t find the offer you are looking for, you can test your creativity by searching for flights that add a stopover. For example, flying to Phuket with stopovers in Singapore or Kuala Lumpur on a budget airline like Scoot or AirAsia respectively may be cheaper than a direct flight.
