Flights to Bali from UK

I'm planning a trip to Bali over Christmas this year - can any one advise when is the best time to book flights for the best prices, and also where to find best prices? A local travel agent told me yesterday that I should book 11 months in advance to avoid paying high taxes ... not sure if this is a sales ploy or the truth. Any advice please? Thanks for taking the time, Jinny

Hi Jinny

Most Travel Agents will give you a sales pitch in order to get your business there and then. I would be more inclined to use a website like skyscanner and if you see a price that you think is ok you should book it. The way oil prices are going flight prices won't come down. If it were me I'd be looking to book ASAP.

Kind Regards

I echo motherwell's comments. I am looking at December airfares already and plan to book soon. Skyscanner is great for finding the best fares.

Bali in December and especially Christmas is particularly busy so I do not anticipate a Sale on those dates.

Skyscanner is a safe bet to get an idea of what going on.

Most competitive pricewise on this route are Singapore Airlines, KLM, Emirates and probably Air Asia if you can get a special.

For Air Asia I've recently discovered that for some international flights they will get your bags to your final destination and you should not have to go through immigration on your stopover in Kuala Lumpur.

Have not read any live account of this yet. Sounds promising.
