India is a haven for intrepid travellers looking to open their eyes to new cultures, traditions and flavours, and India flights are not expensive. There are some great flight deals to be found from London to Mumbai, for example.
India covers an immense area of 3.29 million square kilometres, therefore the best time to find cheap tickets to India depends on the region you decide to visit since one side of the country could be experiencing boiling hot temperatures at the same time as the other is shivering in the freezing cold. Be sure to watch out for monsoon season from June to October as well when you are looking for cheap India flights! It should be noted that the rain often disrupts transport services during this time making it hard to travel through the country. The summer, from March until May, is the ideal period to find last minute flights to the north of the country where the cooler air in the mountains and hills provides the perfect relief from the uncomfortable heat often inflicted on the rest India. The summer is also the best time for wildlife lovers to visit the national parks as the animal's come out of hiding in search of water.
Alternatively, winter is the time to compare flights and hit up the picture-perfect beaches in southern Indian and the desert state of Rajasthan. However, it should be noted that this is a popular holiday destination so we advise customers to book their tickets to India for the winter well in advance in order to benefit from the cheapest flight deals.
