Like always, flying mid-week and outside the peak travel season means there are more chances to find a cheap flight. Try to book your ticket about 6-8 weeks before departure during the low season. Don’t be tempted to book too far in advance because the low-cost carriers have higher fares if you book too far in advance rather than the other way around.
