Google, in its 2023 flight booking trends, has just published insight into 2023’s travel landscape. For travelers eyeing flights to Europe from the U.S., the findings present a clear directive: 72 days before the departure is the best time to book flights to Europe. On average, European air tickets are most competitive at this juncture. As departure dates loom closer, especially within the consequential 10-week period, travelers will likely witness a noticeable upswing in airfares.
Now, one must ask: Does this data differentiate between economy and business class flights to Europe? Google’s report doesn’t specify. However, a deep dive into the patterns and trends suggests that this data likely pertains to both travel classes. It underscores the broader tendency of airfares to escalate as the departure date draws near, regardless of travel class. So, whether you book business class flights or economy class, now you are the magic number.
Google’s latest findings offer a different perspective in today’s fast-paced digital world. They emphasize the importance of planning ahead, especially when spending significant amounts on international travel. For example, investing in business class flights to Europe is a major decision, and finding ways to save can significantly improve the travel experience.
