Top tips for finding a cheap flight to Prague (PRG)

Book in the Goldilocks Window

There is no one right time to book a flight, but there is a window when fares are typically cheaper. It’s not too far away from your trip but not too close either. We call this perfect period the Goldilocks Window, and it’s about 1–3 months before a domestic flight and 2–8 months before an international flight.

That said, if you’re planning to travel during a peak season, or if your trip requires specific dates with no wiggle room, like for a wedding, we recommend planning even further in advance. If you want to visit Prague during the height of the tourist season in July, it’s best to start looking for flights in January.

Last-minute deals are almost nonexistent during busy travel seasons. Fare jumps happen 21, 14, and 7 days before departure dates, so whatever you do, don’t wait until the last minute.

Use the Greek Islands Trick

Sometimes, especially during peak travel seasons, airfare just doesn’t budge. Enter, our Greek Islands Trick, which luckily works all over Europe. The trick involves getting as close as you can to your final destination, in this case Prague, for the cheapest fare possible. Then, you can find a budget airline flight or alternative mode of transit for the final leg.

If you really want to fly from New York to Prague in June, you could be looking at a price tag of $1,000 or more. Instead, check out fares to London, Paris, Berlin, or Munich, which can be found for $600. Pair that with a budget airline flight (often under $170) or a train ticket (especially if you fly into Germany, which is close), and you’ve just saved yourself a couple hundred bucks. It involves more work, but depending on the deals you find it could save a ton of money.

Search alternative departure airports

Travelers living in New York City likely search for flights from JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark. They probably don’t look elsewhere, and why would they when there are so many options right there? Believe it or not, there are situations in which you could save money by looking at long-haul flights from other cities.

We see shockingly cheap fares from all sorts of airports, big and small. If flight prices from the New York airports to Prague are high, check out flights from Boston, Philly, or DC, for example. If you see an amazing deal it could be worth the drive or train trip for the transatlantic leg of your journey.

Fly when it’s cheaper

The simplest way to save on flights is to travel during off seasons. When more people want to travel, airlines can charge more for flights. So it’s no surprise that the busy summer season has higher airfare. Travel during the winter, and you’ll save not only on flights but on hotels too. Also, don’t sleep on Thanksgiving week travel. While it’s an expensive time to travel domestically, it’s actually one of the cheaper weeks to leave the US.

We also love shoulder seasons, the months just before and after peak travel periods. Prices are cheaper than high season, and you still get nice weather. That’s March–May and September–October in Prague.

If you’re set on traveling during the summer, there are still ways to save. Try to fly on what are generally the cheapest days of the week: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Not surprisingly, Fridays and Sundays are the most expensive.

Set alerts for specific trips

Life is busy, and searching for flights can take time and add stress. Instead, let technology do the work for you. Set up fare alerts for your travel dates, and you’ll get an email when prices fall into your target price range or by a significant amount. We recommend doing this before the Goldilocks Window so you can see prices fall during that time. Also, remember to set up multiple alerts if your dates or departure airports are flexible.

Prague is well connected to Europe, but it can be hard to reach from elsewhere. Most visitors from outside of Europe will have at least one connection.
