In general terms it is best to book your flight tickets as early as you can to get the cheapest price. Millions of searches are logged on our price comparison sites every month and we make these available to our users. We are frequently asked why prices can rise in just a matter of hours between searches. Prices can actually rise much faster than that. The main reason for this is that other users also know that the price is cheap and when many start to book at that price, the price rises.
