When will I find the cheapest airfare on cheap Euro airlines such as RyanAir orEasyJet: months ahead of time or at the last minute?

Alot of Euro discount travel stuff is really cheap the farther ahead you book your ticket. I used Easyjet and the different of a week can often double prices as you get closer to your travel date.

You can always keep an eye on their website to gauge what sort of prices go up and when.

Thanks for the tips. Searching around I think Olympic is my cheapest option from LHR to Athens. EasyJet only saves me like $40 bucks and I have to travel to antoher airport to get the discount.

Seems EasyJet's pretty cheap until you go to greece (about $150 for 1 way).
