Book it earlyÂ
If you still haven’t booked your tickets, do it right now. November end is almost here and you wouldn’t want to pay a bomb on the airfares. Book your tickets on Paytm and you might get some exciting discounts and cash backs too!
Avoid the weekends
Before you book, make sure to keep in mind that you avoid the weekend before the holidays as thatâs the busiest time of the year and you might get massive price hikes if you book then. For Christmas, cheaper departure dates are currently December 21-25 and for the flight back home itâs best to leave on December 28th -31stÂ
Donât neglect the time of booking
The cheapest times to fly are early in the morning from 5 am to 7 am or in the evening after 8 pm The most expensive times to fly are Â 8 am to 10 am and 5 pm to 7 pm
For those who wait till the last minute
If your time has gone and youâre booking in a hurry, make sure you have the 21 day time period before booking your flight. Once you hit that 21-day window, fares usually start to escalate. The most expensive days to book are 7 days before departure. So, make sure to book as early as you can before yourÂ departure date to get the cheapest tickets.
