Hello,

Im wanting to fly to thailand on 26th december returning 2 weeks later does anyone know a cheap way to get there from uk?

ive heard that sometimes its better to fly to europe first and the onto bangkok?!

most flights ive found seem to start from anout £850 which is more than i wanted to spend :0(

obviously im not looking for an amazing inflight entertainment system and massive foot space........ just cheap and cheerfull.

Any infomation would be greatly apreciated :0)

thank you

Danny

Hey Danny,

I am getting pretty good at the cheap flight thing. I paid 1600 (Canadian) for a flight to Bankok for last day in November, and I just found it for 1300 :(

Anyway! Check this site out, I ordered off the Canadian version of the site. Make sure to look around on the site a bit, check the dates and all that. Some on here are around 4-500 (UK) and up, depending on the date of travel. When are you planning to go? Its gonna be my first xmas away from home!

Good luck,
Calvin

I have always found Trailfinders the cheapest but my sister went with Travelbag recently as they got her the cheapest deal for a flight to OZ.

You are flying at an expensive time of year and not booking that far in advance so I doubt you will get it much cheaper than that. I have heard it's supposed to be cheaper to fly on Christmas day than Boxing day, if you don't mind doing this.

I have heard it's supposed to be cheaper to fly on Christmas day than Boxing day, if you don't mind doing this.

You're right! I did a check on wego.com and fares LON-BKK-LON on Boxing days start at >1000GBP and those on Christmas start at 800+GBP. Prices include tax.

Flight prices from Frankfurt were comparable to that from London.
