Travel & flight hacking

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.
