Laos has partially open to international tourism

Laos has partially reopened to international tourism in January 2022. Fully vaccinated foreign travelers from some countries can enter Laos as part of the Green Travel Zone reopening scheme. After a 7-day mandatory quarantine, they are permitted to visit “green tourism areas” – Vientiane, Vangvieng, and Luang Prabang – and must stay in LaoSafe hotels.

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

The best time to find cheap airline deals for Laos tends to be during the low season  from May to October. Flight tickets, hotel rooms, and package tours are sinking to all-year lows during these months of monsoon season. November through February is the peak season, and tourist attractions are bustling with crowds – if you really have to travel to Laos during this time it’s wise to book the flights well in advance.

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

Here are some examples of flights departing from popular airports. The prices are updated in real-time.

10 most effective flight & travel hacks for Laos

  1. Get Lao eVisa online. Every international traveler that visits Laos needs a visa. While you can get a visa on arrival, purchasing an e-visa online (use the official eVisa website of the Lao Ministry of Foreign Affairs) will save you time standing in line at Customs/Immigration. It takes 5 minutes to go through the online form – your visa will be approved immediately and will land in your email inbox in another 5 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Fly in the low season. Flying to Laos during the low season (May – September) is one easy way to save money on flights. With significantly fewer visitors, everything (including air tickets) is cheaper. Book at least 2 months before departure in order to get a below-average price. Avoid the peak season – October to April.
  4. Avoid public holidays. Prices skyrocket during Lao holidays – adjust your travel dates to avoid expensive tickets. Cheap flights to Laos are non-existent during popular “red days” and festivals such as Boun Pha Vet (January-February), Boun Ma Kha Bu Saar (February), and Boun Visakha Bu Saar (May). If you really have to travel to Laos during these peak periods it's wise to book the flights well in advance.
  5. Check different departure airports. Consider neighboring cities when choosing the departure airport – especially look for larger cities with airports that serve as hubs for multiple airlines. For example, if you live in West Europe, check prices for flights departing from Paris, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Madrid, Rome, and Vienna. In 9 out of 10 cases, the cheapest flight to Laos will depart from one of these hubs. Yes, you may have to fly a few hundred kilometers to this hub, but low-cost airlines like EasyJet, RyanAir, or WizzAir will happily take you there for €50 - €100.
  6. Arrive in Vientiane. Two main international airports are in Vientiane – Wattay International Airport (VTE), and in Luang Prabang – Luang Prabang International Airport (LPQ). The Vientiane airport serves more airlines, so the cheapest flights to Laos usually fly there.
  7. Domestic flights in Laos. Even if flying locally between cities in Laos is possible, it's much more expensive than traveling overland. Still, if you want to save time during your trip to Laos, these two domestic routes are popular and flight prices are fair: Vientiane – Ban Houayxay, Vientiane – Paksé, and Luang Prabang – Ban Houayxay. The national airline of Laos, Lao Airlines, serves these routes at a reasonable cost of around $50.
  8. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to Laos 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.
  9. Lost baggage prevention. Avoid lost luggage nightmares by removing old tags on your suitcases. Tags are printed with a barcode which is used for identification and tracking – so the old tags can really confuse baggage handlers and the conveyor belt scanners. They are one of the reasons so many bags miss their flight or get misrouted.
  10. Don’t book tours or activities in advance. Anything you see online is going to be more expensive than you need to pay. Wait till you arrive in Laos and will be able to negotiate in person much lower price.

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.
