When is the best time to buy airfare?

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am new here (great site by the way) and in planning a March '10 trip to Ireland I have been reading all over the internet trying to find out when the best time to buy airline tickets. A few weeks ago, when I first decided to go ahead and make the trip, the tickets were quite a bit cheaper than they are now. I held off buying them because all the articles I was reading said to wait until about 6 months out. I was wondering what has your experience been? This will be my husband and I's first real international flight (not counting Mexico) so I haven't really tracked overseas flights in the past and am unaware as to how much they change. Thank you and I have enjoyed reading many of your experiences, I'm sure this board will be a great help in my planning process!

Nikki
