How to save money on flights from Dublin
Often, booking flights from Dublin to your desired location can be stressful and expensive. Luckily, we have provided some tips to save money on flights from Dublin:
1. Book your flight from Dublin in advance
The best way to save money on plane tickets is to book in advance. We recommend that you book your trip at least one month before you depart.
For example, a return flight from Dublin to Faro booked one day in advance during the month of June will cost 450 € to 500 € per passenger. On the other hand, the same flight booked one month in advance costs 280 € to 350 € – that’s 30% to 40% cheaper than booking the day before!
Bear in mind that June and July are both peak tourist months in Faro, so the price difference is really down to booking in advance.
2. Travel during the off-peak season
Another great way to save money on plane tickets is to avoid travelling during the peak season.
The peak season to fly from Dublin to New York, for example, is during the summer (from June to August).
A return flight from Dublin to New York in July can cost 1000 € to 1200 € per passenger even if it’s booked one month in advance.
The same flights booked for a trip in September can cost 400 € to 600 € – that’s 50% cheaper than a trip in July!
In addition to less expensive flights, travelling during the off-peak season means that you can avoid the crowds. Travelling in autumn (fall) is perfect if you are looking for cooler weather whilst you’re in New York.
3. Get a midweek flight or travel in the mornings and evenings
Usually, travelling during the weekend is the most expensive. On the other hand, flights on Tuesdays and Wednesdays are often the less expensive option.
Also, morning and evening flights are usually cheaper than flights in the middle of the day.
Bear in mind, however, that these are not hard and fast rules. You can compare flight prices for your date of travel with Trazler’s search engine.
4. Don’t get a direct flight from Dublin
The last tip to save money on your flight is to get flights with a layover.
Travelling from Dublin to New York in July, for example, is much cheaper if you book a trip with one stop.
For the same dates of travel, a direct flight from Dublin to New York can cost 950 € to 1150 € per passenger, and with one-stop, it can cost 650 €. That’s at least 300 € in savings per passenger!
Remember that flying directly takes less time, however. A direct flight from Dublin to New York can take 6-7 hours, whereas a flight with a stop can take 12-14 hours.
