I am Backpacking through south-east Asia and I has decided to fly from Vientiane to Ho Chi Minh City via Laos airlines. I am tossing up whether to buy me flights now so that I know I have a way out or whether to buy them when I am there so have flexibility. Is it easy to buy flights there, how often do flights leave and are they often full to the brim?
I believe those flights will be much more expensive if you wait - one price certainly does not fit all!!!
I played on Lao Airlines website and found out that it does not make any difference if you book 2 weeks in advance or 3 days. The price is the same. However, I could never get a quote for VTE-SGN. I picked 15 different dates in Sept. & Oct. and could not get a quote. Not sure what is going on there. I get quotes for VTE-BKK and VTE-HAN, but not to SGN. Good luck with your planning.
i'd highly recommend skyscanner.net - a great website that lets you view a wide range of dates at any one time.
