Fare Tips

Class Tips displays the lowest available fare for your selected travel dates. If you are not satisfied with the fare displayed, you may like to read the following points and adjust your schedule if appropriate.

Try and book well in advance

The lowest fares are sold subject to availability, so generally fares will be lower if you purchase well in advance of your travel date.

Stay a Saturday night

Many of the lower fares require that you stay over a Saturday night, so ensuring you include a Saturday night stay in your trip may reduce the fare.

Avoid peak travel

As you would expect, the lowest fares sell quickly on peak time flights. Try and take flights at the quieter times such as mid-morning or early afternoon. Avoid travelling on Monday mornings, Friday evenings, Sunday afternoons, or Bank Holidays if you want the lowest fares.

Consider alternative travel dates

If sale fares are not available on your selected travel dates you will receive the option to search for a lower fare up to seven days either side of the original departure and return dates at the 'select' stage of your online booking.
If there is more than one airport in the city you are travelling to/from, examine fares for each airport carefully, for example fares to London Gatwick are usually lower than to London Heathrow.
