Air booking--how far in advance?

Posted by AdamS on 24/12/2008 at 23:39

I am arriving in Hanoi Jan 7.
I need to go to SGN sometime between Jan 10-11, but would like to keep my travel plans flexible.
Will I have to pay substantially more if I wait to book my flight until I get there?
I am being quoted $95 US right now for the flight, which seems like a fair price...the agent is asking me to confirm ASAP--I am not sure if this is because they want the sale, or if flights are filling up fast in the days leading up to Tet.

If you're planning on flying during Tet I'd buy the ticket now. $95 for Hanoi to Saigon seems very cheap to me. If you don't want to work through an agency, check flights on Jetstar.
