I wonder if anybody can give me a bit of advice. I want to travel to London after Christmas and have done a quick search from Göteborg. Ryanair is a no no. Norwegian costs 3400:_ and BA costs 8000:- for 2 people. Am i too early in thinking about booking a trip or should i wait and how long should i wait?


Thanks

Man, that is expensive. I normally do British Airways all the way to Bermuda for around the same price. I'm flying out of Stockholm though... might end up being cheaper to travel by train to Stockholm. Also, I've notice that when booking online with British airways, the return prices are tied to the date you book the first flight. So booking in the summer time is always more expensive.

For comparison, when I book my tickets in January, I can get a flight from Stockholm to Bermuda and back for around $800 USD. Even if I book my return ticket for a year later. Booking in August is normally about $1,700.

I would say to just wait until it gets closer to Xmas. They do specials a few times a year as well.

I bought tickets for my UK kids to visit Sweden at Christmas for years. My experience was the closer you get to Christmas, the prices increase. So I used to try to book in October or not later than November.

3700:- for two people, seems like a super price to me!
