Buy Cheap Flights in May with Alternative Airlines
May isn't a super-popular time to travel, nor is it the quietest time either. Therefore it's neither a particularly expensive or cheap time to fly. Of course, it does depend on where you're travelling to and from. For most of Africa, as well as places like Brazil, Mexico, the Caribbean, Thailand, China, Japan and Vietnam, May falls in their 'off-season' so you may be able to find cheaper flights by travelling to these destinations in May versus other times in the year. On the flip side, some countries, such as the UK, have May half term or other holidays that might bump up the price.
Regardless of all that, if you're booking a flight in May, you'll want to make sure that you don't overpay. At Alternative Airlines, we've got some handy tips and tools that you can follow and use to ensure you're getting the best deal, such as our cheapest date calendar and our flight search result filters...
