It’s never too early for a flight deal. And the cheap flights for 2022 travel are here … in a big way.
While travel is bouncing back fast, many travelers aren’t looking to return until next year. Lucky for them, flights are already bookable into April 2022 – and we’re finding some of the lowest fares we’ve ever seen. That includes flights to Europe regularly under $300 roundtrip, trips to Japan for $250 or less, and a jaunt to the Caribbean and back for under $200 total.
Whether you’ve written off travel for 2021 or you’re simply waiting for Europe to reopen to Americans, the time to plan a trip for 2022 – or even book those flights – is right now.
Flights are Bookable Through April 2022 Already
You don’t have to wait until just a month or two before your trip to book a flight — or find a cheap fare.
Most major airlines publish their flights 11 months (or 330 days) in advance. That means when you’re searching for flights using Google Flights or any other platform, you can book 11 months out: currently as far as April 2022.
Our team is always on the hunt for the best flight deals, flash sales, and mistake fares as far in advance as possible. When we find one, our Thrifty Traveler Premium members get an instant alert for deals from their home airport. No last-minute planning needed!
Main cabin economy fares booked on most major U.S. airlines are still eligible for fee-free changes, making it much easier to plan a future trip worry-free. Oh, and then there’s the other part: The deals for 2022 are getting absolutely out of control.
