When do the Boxing Day flight sales start?

Boxing Day officially starts at midnight on 26 December every year, but a few travel companies start dropping their sales early.

We recommend looking for deals in the week leading up to Boxing Day. The early bird does get the worm so the sooner you book, the more likely you are to get the best price on your preferred dates.

This page will be updated with all the deals (as listed above) as they land.

How can I get the best Boxing Day flight deal?

Taking advantage of the flight sales during Boxing Day can definitely get you more more value for money, so here are some tips to help you get the flight you want.

  • Be flexible with your dates. Usually, the further out you are from the date you’re planning to leave, the cheaper the flight may be.
  • Go anywhere. Don’t go into the sales looking for a specific destination or you may end up disappointed that you can’t get a deal to the place you want to go. Instead, have a broader range of places or settle on the simple idea of a beach holiday or city break instead. Let the prices guide you to your next holiday spot and you may just find somewhere new to love.
  • Know when the sales start and finish. We all know that sales work on a first-come-first-served basis, so make sure you’re on your computer when the sale starts to get the best offers.
  • Check to see what has launched early. Just because Boxing Day technically starts at midnight, it doesn’t mean the sales do too. Many airlines have end-of-year or Christmas sales that fall over Boxing Day, but are actually available on other dates, too.
  • Cut back on bags where you can. This is particularly important if you’re flying on a budget carrier, as luggage is one of the biggest problems that they have. Most budget carriers charge an extra fee if you want to check in your bags.
