Best time to book?

by twoshirts Online Now Feb 6, 2013 at 10:39 PM

I live in Dubai and am going to Nice, France for two weeks June 20 to July 3, 2013. I will be booking ticket on the internet. Am I likely to get better deals by booking now (February) or waiting until nearer the time? As I have to let my hosts know in reasonable time, I cannot leave booking until any later than May.

Someone has said that it is better to book early in Dubai because the nearer it gets to summer, the more people are booking to escape the heat of summer - and prices go up. I know that is true if you are using a local travel agent. But, as I am booking on the internet (and not with Emirates or Etihad), does it make any difference? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    yes, book now! It would be economical except for the one-off discounted fares which are less likely in summers..

    earlier booking, the better unless you get last minute deals through Emirates
