    Around the 25th, its coming up at £150+ each right now, does anyone know if im likely to get some kind of deal or will the price just keep going up the closer to summer we get?

    thanks

    nobody can tell. Airlines tend to use revenue management systems. Generally they will rise in price as lower fare buckets sell out but if seats are not selling (unpopular dates etc) they may reduce. However given this is for summer holiday time I would not expect them to fall much (if at all)
    The question will be, which is worse - if you buy at £150 and they go down to £130 or you hold off buying hoping they go down and they go up to £200
    Airlines often have sales but peak travel times are usually excluded from the sale period

    Yes you are right, I wonder if the kids would mind staying at home?

    Helena, I would suggest you to book tickets in advance as summers is a peak season of vacations etc. Also, I can recommend you try to look for flight aggregators. Hope you find it useful!
