Best time to travel

I read that Skyscanner has come up with when are the best (and worst) times to travel – I think it appears to be from a cost and crowd standpoint). A few points:

  1. Book 5 months ahead and you stand an opportunity to get the best deal with up to 15% savings (well that depends on a host of factors…).
  2. Try traveling in the months identified as cheapest – ie September (generally) and avoid December (duh?).
  3. If need to travel in February, try the last week (duh again!).

All these relate mainly to the travel crowd from Singapore. However you can find more about what the above means in your own countries. Obviously things will be different – think about when you have public and school holidays…

The point of this blog post is that there is really no “one approach fits all”. Statistics tell for a large body of folks but it may will not apply to each individual. It depends on your circumstance. If time is a really valuable commodity for you (it is not always for everyone), then travel in 2nd week of February you must. May the force be with you.

That said, searching from a wide variety of sources do help. No harm looking right?
