Punta Cana, DR Airport By: Samantha Calderon

There have been numerous studies conducted to find the best time to book airfare. Even though sites like Skyscanner say you should book at least 5 weeks in advance CheapAir conducted a year long study and found the following, “Magic Numbers.”

Europe: 151 days before your flight

Asia: 129 days before your flight

The Caribbean: 101 days before your flight

Mexico: 89 days before your flight

Latin America: 80 days before your flight

Domestic: 54 days before your flight

If you don’t hit 54 days on the head, you should usually book between 104 to 29 days before your trip.

  1. Helpful tips! I just wish I could plan that far in advance! I’ll have to work on that I guess.


    1. Thanks! I’m not much of a planner myself, so it’s hard for me too sometimes. I have found that setting up email alerts with different websites is a great alternative. By the time I am ready to buy, I am bound to have a great promo sitting in my inbox.
