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

Malaysia’s weather makes it a year-round travel destination. However, the best time to fly cheaply to Malaysia tends to be during the low season March through June. It is when the country experiences a rainy season coupled with low humidity. From the beginning of December to the end of January falls the peak tourist season that attracts lots of visitors and sends airfares sky high. If you really have to travel to Malaysia during the peak period 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

9 most effective flight hacks for Malaysia

  1. 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.
  2. Avoid Malaysian public holidays. Prices skyrocket during holidays in Malaysia – adjust your travel dates to avoid expensive tickets. Cheap flights to Malaysia are non-existent during popular “red days” such as Hari Merdeka (31 August), Chinese New Year (February), Wesak Day (10 May), and Hari Raya Puasa (May).
  3. Fly in the low season. Flying to Malaysia during the monsoon season (late November to mid-February) is one easy way to save money on flights. With significantly fewer visitors, everything (including air tickets) is cheaper. To avoid the worst of the rains, skip the east coast.
  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 mean you have an extra city to visit without purchasing any extra ticket. Big plus: in-direct routes are usually much cheaper too!
  5. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to Malaysia is to become a member of 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Avoid the last flight connection of the day. Even in the post-pandemic world sudden flight cancellations may still take place. When flying domestically, try not to book the last flight out of your connecting airport. In case of a cancellation, the airline will obviously put you on its next flight, but it will require an overnight stay and arrival a day later.
  8. Think in advance ... ... if you enjoy having a beer or a drink during the trip. Being an Islamic country Malaysia has completely dry airports especially if you are taking a domestic flight. Also, the inflight menu will not have alcoholic drinks available for purchase.
  9. DM instead of the call center. Use Twitter or Facebook Messenger to contact the airline 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.
