Flights to Dublin Airport: When is the cheapest time to book your trip?

Many Dubs are planning their summer vacation now and looking for the best deals to save a few bucks.

With the latest Covid-19 restriction on air travel lifted over the past weekend, there’s no better time to book that spring or summer getaway.

According to a CheapAir.com airfare study, there are six booking areas that passengers should be aware of when researching flights and how much they cost.

Here are the six booking zones identified by CheapAir.com and the prices you can expect in each.

203 – 315 days in advance

This is do not a good time to close a deal. You will end up paying around €50 more than if you had waited closer to your departure date.

However, one of the benefits of booking early is that you’ll likely have more seating options.

116-202 days

Flights tend to cost €20 more than if you wait another few weeks. There are still plenty of seating options if you’re willing to wait.

21-115 days in advance

This is the main reservation window according to CheapAir.com. This is the perfect time to go in search of cheap flights with fares usually less than 5% of their lowest price.

14-20 days in advance

If you are a bit daring, you can always try your luck and book your flight less than three weeks before the departure date. Convenient flights and the best seats will likely be booked, but there’s always a chance you’ll get lucky with cheap tickets.

7-13 days in advance

Flights can be up to €135 cheaper “than they would be if you waited until the last minute to buy your tickets”, according to CheapAir.com. However, finding available flights so close to the departure date is unlikely.

0-6 days in advance

Last minute flights can cost up to €220 more than if you had booked in the main booking window.
