The flight prices, the length of the queues and the lack of lost luggage left many in Israel this summer • But maybe it's all for the best - if you think ahead and be flexible about dates - you can book a relaxed vacation at the cheapest

The months of July and August are known as the most expensive months of the year in the world of tourism.

The demand for flights is extremely high, hotels all over the world are filled with tourists who went on summer vacation - and the prices accordingly.

If you searched for flights in July-August, there is a chance that you came across tickets for 1,200 dollars to London, 1,100 dollars to Paris, 3,000 dollars to Bangkok, or similar prices that caused quite a few people to give up summer vacations overseas and stay at home.

• Before you book a flight: this is the hottest destination in Europe

If you can afford to fly in September, there is a window of about three weeks with very favorable prices that can be taken advantage of if you book tickets in the near future.

As you get closer to the date, the prices usually go up.

The most important thing - order only with the possibility of cancellation and after you have read all the terms and understood that the flight ticket you purchased is suitable for you.

With a quick stroll on the net we found amazing deals.

For example: direct flights to Budapest on September 4-9 will cost from 111 dollars per passenger, flights to Bucharest on the week of September 1-7 - from 109 dollars per ticket, direct flights to Larnaca between September 17-22 can be obtained today from 96 dollars.

You can fly to Rome at a price starting from 117 dollars between the dates of September 6-12, while to Vienna you can find direct flights between the dates of September 13-20 at a price starting from 109 dollars per person.

The examples we have given here are a small part of a long line of airlines that lower prices at a time when demand is lower.

The low demand has another positive effect for the flights, and is a certain decrease that is expected in the queues at the airports both in Israel and in the world.

We mentioned that flight prices drop in a period of about three weeks, from the beginning of September, and the reason for this is that on September 25th, Rosh Hashanah will be celebrated.

From around this date onwards, the demands increase again, and with them the prices also jump up again.

If it doesn't work out for you to fly in September, you should remember that the prices will drop after the holidays.

The Etihad airline from Abu Dhabi launched interesting promotions for flights to the East this week and now offers all those planning to fly to Bangkok during the low months until November 30 flights at prices starting at 470 dollars, to the Maldives - from 475 dollars, to Singapore and Seoul - from 776 dollars, And to New Delhi from 390 dollars.

These are prices that were rare even in the period before Corona, and are considered significantly lower than the current market prices.

In the case of Etihad, this even includes baggage (up to 20 kg for the belly of the plane and up to 7 kg for hand luggage) and a meal.

It is estimated that additional airlines will have to respond to the new prices published by Etihad for flights that will take off by the end of November, and they are also expected to adjust the prices.

In recent days there has also been a decrease in the prices of jet fuel, and as more airlines operate flights to Israel - which is expected to happen soon following the opening of the Saudi skies - we are expected to see a trending decrease in the prices of flights abroad.

Highlights that are important to pay attention to: when you book a flight, make sure what you deserve.

If you want to cancel it or change the date, this will be of great importance in the booking process.

If you are flying with a connection, make sure that the interval between the flights will be long enough (of course not too much) because there are still a lot of delays at the various airports and it is possible that your flight will be delayed, which may cause you to miss the connecting flight.

Before you pull out the credit cards, make sure in the fine print what you get for the card you are ordering: baggage, meal, boarding, etc.

These are additions that can significantly increase the final price of the ticket.

Landing at a nearby airport and at a very convenient time is significantly more convenient, since using public transportation is usually only possible during the day, and this can save you money when you arrive at the hotel.

An airport far from the hotel may make it more expensive and inconvenient to get there, which may harm your vacation experience.
