  1. In need of inspiration? Take a look at this amazing map which shows you the very best prices for any given month
  2. For full service flights, book early but remain flexible on dates – each flight will have a limited number of sale seats
  3. The usual money-saving tips when buying flights (e.g. choosing split tickets – where each leg may be with a different airline – on sites such as Skyscanner) still apply
  4. Low cost airline seats for next summer have already been released. Check prices for these airlines on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and buy early
  5. Sign up to Jack’s Flight Club if you don’t have a particular destination in mind and want a real bargain
  6. The best prices will always be on the routes where most airlines compete (e.g. London to New York)
