Here are the best times to book flights in Singapore.

Global travel search engine Skyscanner has revealed in their latest study the best times to book flights in Singapore for this year.

According to the study, the best time to book flights to 10 of Singapore’s most loved destinations including Bangkok, Bali and Hong Kong is between 21–25 weeks in advance. Travellers leveraging on this booking window can benefit from average savings of 21–22%.

The study noted that contrary to popular belief, travellers do not always need to book months in advance to avoid hefty price increases, as there are a few sweet-spot weeks closer to departure. Singapore-outbound travellers booking and planning their air tickets less than two months in advance can still enjoy just 10% price hikes.

For travellers looking to visit Bali and Hong Kong, booking should be done four weeks in advance to dodge high price increases, while those interested in Phuket and Jakarta have a lead time of three weeks. Travellers looking for last minute getaways can consider visiting Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, where they can still book two weeks in advance, before prices increase by more than 10%. 

“By saving on flights, travellers are free to spend more at their destination of choice – be that on hotels, car rental, or restaurants and sightseeing. But what we also want to highlight this year is really the ‘sweet spot’ deals, where Singaporean’s can book flights just a few weeks in advance and still enjoy great deals – without having to plan months ahead,” Skyscanner marketing manager Pamela Knaggs said.
