Always book in advance
During peak season, public holidays, school holidays, the festive period, and when destinations host special events, such as the Lagos Carnival, Calabar Carnival or the FIFA World Cup 2018, everybody wants to travel. Be first in line by booking in advance. If you try to book a flight later, you’ll possibly end up paying more. If you’re looking for the best deals and discounts on airline tickets with international flights, we suggest you book 4 to 5 months in advance.
Be flexible about when you fly
The cheapest time to fly for international travel is on Wednesdays, Sundays and Fridays. These are the best days as they give you the opportunity to get discounts on airline tickets.

Be flight savvy
Use our search tool to get discounts on airline tickets! The results are taken from all the airports serving the destination you’re planning to visit, and are automatically arranged to show the cheapest flights first. Get affordable flights by flying to an alternative airport. Well-known examples are that flights to Newark Airport (New Jersey) instead of John F. Kennedy Airport (New York) can be cheaper when flying to New York, while you can save by flying to Abu Dhabi Airport instead of Dubai Airport in the UAE.
Avoid the crowd
You have a better chance of finding discounts on airline tickets when flying during off-peak periods, such as during January, March and October, for international travel, and during March, September and October, for domestic travel. Look out for good flight deals after school holidays and the periods after big events, such as after New Year’s Day. Not everyone flies during these times, guaranteeing you more affordable flight tickets. As an added bonus, some destinations offer great weather throughout the year, such as Cape Town, Dubai, New Zealand, London, Paris, and Los Angeles. Putting in that extra effort will get you that cheap airline ticket!
