    Budget Airline Prices - Do I stick or twist 4th Oct 17 at 12:56 PM
    Hi guys, looking at flights from UK to Alicante/Murcia next August.

    Already booked the villa for 2 weeks. No flexibility with arriving/departing earlier in villa so have to fly on specific dates (unless of course i try to get a cheap Air BnB to tie us over etc)

    This is my dilemma....checked out Easyjet (and every other airline) summer 2018 on flight day and every day since but not finding them to be that great a deal for my selected routes...average £220+ - I was able to get them for approx £150-£180 last year.

    I feel a bit tight paying close to £80 more knowing I had them cheaper last year.

    Question 1 - Do i bite the bullet or....hold on, keep on checking prices and then book as soon as they drop below a certain figure (which is £180). i.e is it possible that 'flash sales' might happen over the next few months.

    Last year.... I booked my flights in January....Using the tools on Momondo told that approx 60-90 days before might get the best deals but is this leaving it too fine.

    I'm fairly flexible on where I fly from, live in South Wales but would fly from Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham, Bournemouth, London, East Midlands so more possibilities.
