It’s never too early for a flight deal. And the cheap flights for travel late this year or even into 2022 are here … in a big way.
Flights are currently bookable through March 2022, and we’re already seeing many of the lowest fares we’ve ever seen. That includes trips to Europe under $300 roundtrip, flights to Japan and back for less than $250, and Caribbean flights 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 March 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: as far as March 2022, currently.
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!
The best part? Right now, all the deals we’re finding can be changed or canceled for a voucher for free, if necessary. Flights booked right now on most major U.S. airlines are 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 absolutely out of control.
