Jetcost has analyzed the average price of air tickets for domestic flights (departure and arrival place in the UK ) of the last 12 months and has identified the month, day and time most convenient to book a flight!
Not only that, we have also analyzed how soon it is worth booking a flight on average and listed a number of useful tips to save even more. Here are the results of the Jetcost search on when to book a flight in the UK in 2019:
Our analysis shows that January is the best month to book a flight in the United Kingdom. For example, a flight from London to Edinburgh has an average price of £41 in January; on the contrary, July is the worst time to book a flight, with an average price of £74 for the same flight.
The average price shows that Wednesday is the cheapest day to book a flight: taking the previous flight (LON - EDI) as an example, the average price on Wednesday is £51, while Friday seems to be the worst day, since the same flight costs on average £58.
According to the searches analyzed, it seems that the most convenient time to book a flight is at 06:00 a.m., when on average the price of flights is lower than at other hours of the day.
Our research does not show any particular average savings when booking at night, so we can say that booking a flight at night is not more convenient than the day.
One of the recommended tips is to book a flight several days in advance of your departure date. Our data also show that on average the prices of flights increase in the days immediately before departure, while booking at least 15 days before allows you to save on average on the price.
