Just wondering how much time I need to book my airline tickets before i need to leave to get a good price. I will be travelling from May till July in Western Europe.

The reason i am asking is i would rather book only a few days before i leave, because i want to be able to change my travel placns as i go?

Is there a cheaper way to go, if i want to leave things to last minute?

Thanks,

Dave.

I have done both ways, The Pro to last minute is you will almost always get a better deal with discount airlines, but the big airlines are know to charge up the ass for peeps who wanna take of in a hurry.

If you buy you ticket in advance, you have enough time to make changes and also you have that security..so its kinda up to you how you wanna play this
