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

The best time to fly to Phuket tends to be during the low season – from the beginning of July until the end of October. November to March is the high tourist season, which coincides with the cool season – the skies are clear and the temperatures are pleasantly warm. If you really have to travel to Phuket during this peak period book your travel earlier to avoid overpriced flight tickets.

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.

8 most effective flight & travel hacks for Phuket

  1. Avoid Thai public holidays. Prices skyrocket during holidays in Thailand – adjust your travel dates to avoid expensive tickets. Cheap flights to Phuket are non-existent during popular “red days” such as Songkran (12-15 April), Coronation Day (5 May), Vesak (26 May), Chulalongkorn Day (23 October), and New Year's Eve (31 December).
  2. Avoid peak travel months in Phuket. The peak season in Phuket is from November to March. During this season, flight prices go up significantly. Try to be flexible and fly to Phuket in May – it is the cheapest month that guarantees the greatest savings.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to Phuket 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.
  6. Use the Thai Post Office to send your suitcase ahead. You can walk into a post office in any Thai town and send a suitcase ahead to your next destination in Thailand. Just contact your next hotel or Airbnb to notify them of the upcoming package delivery. Even a large and heavy suitcase should cost you no more than 300 Bahts (less than $10).
  7. 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.
  8. 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 Qatar Airways – for Privilege Club, with Etihad – for Etihad Guest, etc.

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.
