    Dear ILites,

    Mommies of school going kids, suggest me with your experience.

    Do the flight ticket price hikes during the vacation time ( Jun-Aug)?
    When is the better time to book the tickets?means when we get good deals..

    As I'm planning for India visit this summer, wanted to get these information from you mommies...:)

    Hi Pinky2,

    Yes they do increase the prices. If you will try in june the prices will be around $300-$400/ tkt more than from what if you try for dates after july 10th .
    I'm also looking in to the prices for myself for this summer season and this is what I found out.

    Thanks

    The ticket prices will be hiked from mid june to end of july. Before my daughter started Kindergarten we used to visit India in April-May, but now no other go. If you have a chance then try to look for early May, you might be able to strike a better deal that time. Last year SIA was selling tickets for $800 for first week of May travel.

    My experience is the best prices to India are mid-Jan to mid-May. From about Dec 4 to mid Jan and mid-May to (?) are the highest prices. Glad to hear that Aug may have cheaper tickets as I want to go then if I can scrape up the money.
