Tips for Booking Cheap Flights in May Half Term 2024
Use our calendar to find the cheapest days to fly on during half-term
The dates that you fly on can have a big impact on the price of your flight. If you're planning to go on holiday for a full week, you might find that travelling Friday to Friday is more expensive than Sunday to Sunday (or vice versa). Or, you might find that cutting off or extending your holiday by one day reduces the cost of your flights.
Searching and checking the prices for each different date is a massive hassle. That's why our calendar shows the cheapest dates to fly on before you've searched.
How does it work? It's simple:
Dates in green = the cheapest dates to fly on
Dates in yellow = mid-range priced flights
Dates in red = most expensive dates to fly on
Sort your search by the lowest price
Once you've decided on when you to fly during the May half term, you can sort your search so that the lowest priced flights appear at the top.
This will make it really easy to see what the cheapest prices are without having to scroll through all the different flights.
Lowest price by airline
You can also easily search for the cheapest flight per airline.
By clicking on one of the logos on the banner at the top of the screen, we'll show you flights from the airline that you've selected, with the cheapest prices at the top.
This is perfect if there's a certain airline that you like flying on. Or, if you want to quickly compare the cheapest flight one each airline.
Buy Now, Pay Later
As we mentioned earlier — how you pay can be as important as what you pay.
Buy now, pay later is proof of that! Although it won't actually make the price of your flight cheaper. It can make your flight much affordable.
What is buy now, pay later? Buy now, pay later is a payment option that allows you to spread the cost of your flights over time. You can choose to pay back the cost in either monthly or fortnightly instalments. It's perfect if you want to confirm your flight today but don't have the funds to or don't want to pay back the rest of it until a later date.
In the UK, we offer buy now, pay later options through Klarna and Zip.
