Tips for booking cheap flights in December 2024

Use our calendar to find the cheapest flight

Our cheapest date calendar is the perfect tool for anyone who isn't fussed about which dates they fly on and can be flexible with their dates. The calendar is color-coded and highlights the cheapest days to fly in shades of green and the most expensive days in shades of red. Anything in between will be colored in yellow. The deeper green the date is, the cheaper the flights are on that day.

Our calendar is the first place to start when looking for cheap flights in December because it'll filter out the most expensive flights before you've even begun searching. The cheapest calendar automatically loads anytime you open our calendar when searching for a flight on our site.

Find the cheapest flight

Once you've decided the dates you want to fly on, you can choose to sort the flight results by 'lowest price'. This will put all of the cheapest flights at the top of the search.

Tip: if you'd like to see all of the cheapest direct flights or the cheapest flights that include baggage in their fare, sort by cheapest and then select one of our other filters. This will show you all of the cheapest flights with your selected filter view.

Pick the right payment method

While picking the right payment method won't make your flight cheaper, it can definitely help with paying off a flight ticket and make it more affordable. For example, on flights that are paid for via PayPal, you're eligible to earn cashback. Or, if you choose one of our buy now pay later options, you can split of the ticket over time. This allows you to better manage your money and buy the flight weeks or months before you'd ordinarily be able to.
