Best time to fly to Asia?Here are the cheapest months/days to book flights

The best time to fly to Asia tends to be during the low season. Weather patterns vary greatly from country to country, but as a rule, the monsoon season (considered the low, off-peak season) in Southeast Asia runs from June to October, and in Central Asia it falls between November and March.

Bear in mind that plane tickets usually don’t get cheaper closer to the departure date. Even these reasonably priced flights in the low season sell out quite far ahead of the date of travel – it pays to book your ticket well in advance. The best time to buy can vary among airlines but the golden time for domestic flights usually falls between 3 weeks and 8 weeks before the departure. For international flights, give yourself even more time: start checking ticket prices at least 2-6 months beforehand to find an affordable flight.

There is one main rule airlines’ price algorithm use: the fewer seats an airline has left on a flight, the more expensive those available seats will be. Knowing how the flight ticket pricing work, will give you an advantage when booking the next flight

12 tips for the cheapest flights from Canada to Asia

  1. Avoid Asia's public holidays. Prices skyrocket during holidays and popular festivals – adjust your travel dates to avoid expensive tickets. Cheap flights to Asia are non-existent during popular “red days” such as Chinese New Year (February), Eid al-Fitr (May), Waisak Day (May), Christmas and Boxing Day (24-26 December). If you really have to travel to Asia during these peak periods it's wise to book the flights well in advance.
  2. Fly in the low season. Flying to Asia during the low season is one easy way to save money on flights. Weather patterns vary greatly from country to country, but as a rule, the dry (peak) season runs from November to February, the hot season – from March to May, and the wet (low, off-peak) season – from June to October. With significantly fewer visitors, during the off-peak season, everything (including air tickets) is cheaper. Google your destination to find out which months are the cheapest to travel.
  3. Buy a flexi fare. Many airlines have already realized that their customer travel plans may be fluid these days. In an attempt to encourage flight bookings, they have implemented flexible, fully refundable ticket options, that allow travelers to book flights and then cancel them at any time, free of charge. Try to take advantage of these new relaxed airline policies, but always make sure you double-check the conditions. Use this flexible flight options guide to learn more.
  4. See extra destinations for free. Though most people prefer direct routes, few others embrace layovers and take them as the perfect opportunity to visit an extra destination. Some airlines offer free layovers which means you have an extra city to visit without purchasing any extra ticket. Big plus: in-direct routes are usually much cheaper too!
  5. Fly to a major Asia's hub. The same goes for Asia: when booking a flight play around with a flight search engine and look for hub-to-hub connections. The major hubs in Asia are Singapore, Dubai, Delhi, Bangkok, Bali (Denpasar), Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Seoul, Taipei, Tokyo, and Manila. If you allow a stopover between the hubs this will also help to reduce your overall flight cost.
  6. Switch to local budget airlines when flying short-haul. Once you arrived in a major hub, you may need to reach one of the smaller airports to get to your final destination. At this point, it will be cheaper to look for a local low-cost airline. There are plenty of budget airlines serving domestic and short international routes in Asia, and the most popular are AirAsia, IndiGo, Citilink, Cebu Pacific, FlyDubai, Jetstar, Malindo Air, Nok Air, Scoot, SpiceJet, Super Air Jet, and VietJet Air.
  7. Make use of loyalty programs. Choose an airline that suits you the best then stick to it. By becoming 'a regular' you will be able to make use of its loyalty program and earn "miles" (or points) – not only for flying but also for everyday expenses. Points earned this way often add up over time and this could give you a chance of significant price reductions on your next flights, special perks, or even free travel. If you often fly with Emirates, opt for Skywards, with Qantas – for Qantas Frequent Flyer, with Singapore Airlines – for KrisFlyer, etc.
  8. Watch for a good sale. Most airlines publish their web promotions frequently. To get a great bargain be sure to watch the airline sales over the course of several weeks.
  9. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to Asia is to become a member of the Air Traveler Club. It is free to join, and deals that the members get every week are priced at least 40% below the average airfare for a given route. Some of these 'hacker fares' can save you up to 80% (!) on your next flight.
  10. Find the best economy seats. Contrary to the popular view, not all economy seats on a plane are created equal. Some seats have slight advantages over others. It all depends on the aircraft, so we recommend visiting the SeatGuru website, where after entering your flight number you will be presented with a detailed seat map. Hover over individual seats to compare quality, and check out other travelers’ reviews.
  11. Book a seat in a quiet zone. Some airlines (for example AirAsia X) start to offer child-free "quiet zones" for a peaceful flight experience. Children below 10 years old are not allowed in this section. Those seats are usually located in front of the plane (bonus: less noise from the engines) with soft ambient lighting and early meal service.
  12. DM instead of the call center. Use Twitter or Facebook Messenger to contact the Canadian air customer service. If the problem arises, social media is usually a faster way to contact a real human that can answer your questions. Don't count too much on airline call centers, they are usually super busy.

Stopover options in Asia Pacific

Direct flights to your Asian destination can be expensive. So if you’re looking at a long-haul trip with at least one connection, rather than simply transiting an airport, why not take an opportunity and plan a longer stopover? It won’t only break up your journey but will become a legitimate part of your vacation.

When booking flight tickets, many airlines include a stopover en route to your final destination. Those flights are usually cheaper than non-stop flights, and they can be a great way of seeing more than one place on your trip. You can often add it at no additional cost, just by looking for multi-city flights with longer layovers.
