Hey guys. I'm going to London this summer, in July, and trying to figure out if I should wait a few more months to see if specials pop up or buy now. Basically, can I be hurt by waiting? The tickets look to be an average of $800-900 now...is that like the ceiling, or as it gets closer will they spike up?
where are you flying from? if you're flying from the East Coast that seems rather high...
Try flying to Liverpool from NY with flyglobespan as they are very cheap. In July you can fly for about $700 - $750 return but if you could fly end of may - june you could fly for approx $450 return. You could then book a coach to London for £1 if you book in advance with either national express or the mega bus. Depends on how flexible you can be.
I'm sorta stuck on early July, but I will check out that site -- thank you!
As for where I'm flying, I'm going out of Boston, which makes things more expensive I think :/ If I could just find something under $800 I would be happy.
You're talking high season, so I'd suggest you find the best deal and go with it before the flights sell out. I booked by ticket in March for a June 20 flight to Paris, and I checked back last week and the plane is full. London's a pretty popular destination - it can book up quickly. And you don't usually get good deals on flights in high season, either. Airlines know they'll sell out regardless of price.
im trying to fly out of new york in july and the rates are pretty bad. there are some deals with air india and such but id rather not settle on just getting there without my bags
Boston should be cheap - iv flown outta Logan many times and those prices are too high I think.
Try flyin to Dublin from Boston and then get on a easyjet or ryanair flight. Thats why I do (the reverse) when I go home to Boston.
Prices for airtickets usually only go up, unless you are flying charter you can get the very best deals around 4-5 months in advance.
If you are close to Canada, consider flying with zoom too.
