Peak season:

China has special festivals and events all throughout the year across the whole country so finding cheap flights to China can be a difficult feat to achieve. The busiest months are generally from October to December when the weather is hot. You’ll need to book your flights to China well in advance to save money on your flight tickets, especially if you are thinking of visiting during a festival or special day. The Chinese New Year is something that will stay with you for life, however, securing cheap flight tickets can be almost impossible so make sure to take this into account when you are searching for flights to China.

Off season:

Both the peak season and the off season vary depending on the part of China you are planning to fly into however as a rule of thumb expect to find the cheapest flights to China during the Winter. You’ll find better value flight tickets during Spring and Autumn and benefit from a lower tourist season for a lot of China, however, Autumn will provide you with fantastic weather and a lot less crowds.

You’ll find the best time to book your flights to China vary a lot depending on where in China you are planning to visit. Wherever it is you decide you should aim to secure your flight tickets at least 3 or 4 months in advance or earlier if you can. If you’re on a budget then definitely avoid special events and festivals as these will see the price of your flight tickets increase dramatically. Autumn is a great time to visit and you’ll find cheap flights to China are easier to come by, especially if you do some planning in advance and secure your flight tickets well ahead of time. Flexibility is key to trying to find the cheapest flights to China so if you can pick and choose virtually any major destination as well as any date then you should be able to find some great deals. Generally sitting on the right hand side of the plane offers you the best views on your flights to China and a reverse seat on the journey home however this can vary slightly depending on where exactly you’re flying to.
