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

You have a lot of flexibility when it comes to booking flights to Thailand. Book between July and September, four to six months in advance, and you can save up to 5% on flight prices during the holiday season.

Choose a departure date during the first week of December for the cheapest flights of the month with 4 December being the cheapest day.

Return flights can be booked anytime of the month for budget prices, giving you an amazing selection of flight deals and flexibility. But for extra savings, choose to fly back on the 17-19 or on the 26 of December.

Your luck and flexibility continues through January as well with low prices throughout the month. The cheapest date for a return flight is 16 January.


Tips and tricks to getting cheap Christmas flights to Thailand

It may be cheap to fly to Thailand, but these quick tips will save you even more.

  • Fly budget. Budget airlines to Thailand from Australia are a dime a dozen. Choose to fly on Jetstar or AirAsia and you could save hundreds of dollars compared to flying all-inclusive on Emirates and Thai Airways.
  • Fly into the cheapest city. You may want to spend your holidays on one of the many Thai islands, but choosing a flight direct to an island is costly. Instead, opt to fly to Bangkok, the cheapest city to fly into in Thailand, or to Phuket, which is serviced by budget airlines. Then, fly to your desired island or city on a budget airline such as AirAsia or Nok Air.
  • Play around with dates. Use Skyscanner’s date and price tool to find the cheapest days to fly on. Cheap Flights shows you comparisons for the cheapest, shortest and smartest flight itineraries based by time and price.
