So, what’s the secret to bargain the cheap flights from Helsinki to London?
First of all, to fly to London at lowest price, you should travel off-season. The high tourist season in London is from April to September, with another peak around Christmas. Check the prices by months with the smart calendar below, and you will apparently notice that travelling in autumn might be an affordable option. However, mind that schools take a break for a week or two in October, which results in most attractions being overcrowded with children at this time.
Then, make sure to compare air fares by day as well, and mind that travelling during the week will often be cheaper compared to flying at the weekend.
Finally, to make the journey expenditures fit into your travel budget, keep in mind, that airfares stay reasonably flat until about 7 months in advance, but then start rising. From that point on, prices just get higher and higher and really never roll back. It makes sense to book as early, as possible. So don’t dilly-dally for too long and pick the tickets the best flight you’ve found
Remember, the key for a reasonably priced journey is to keep your dates flexible. Check as many combinations of dates and days as you can – and you’re sure to fortune upon the best deals!
