Cheapest Months to Fly
According to a New Zealand-based Website, there are three months of the year when air fares are at rock bottom, and this month is one of them. Fares are 19 per cent lower than average in May, November and February, regardless of destination.
The months to avoid are December because of Christmas, and the three summer months, June, July nad August, when people in the northern hemisphere are most likely to take a holiday. Those months are apparently also expensive in New Zealand, where winter sports enthusiasts flock to the country for skiing.
Of course, to benefit from low fares during the cheap months, it is usually best to book several months in advance. It's not foolproof, but by planning your travels during February, May or November you give yourself a good chance of getting rock-bottom prices for flights.
