Top tips for finding a cheap flight to Singapore

Buy your tickets in the Goldilocks Window

At first glance, it may look like there’s no pattern to the way airfare goes up and down. But after years of watching those changes, we’ve found there’s a sweet spot when you’re most likely to find the best airfare deals. For domestic flights, it’s 1-3 months before a trip. For international flights, it’s 2-8 months beforehand. We call this the Goldilocks Window—not too early, and not too late.

That said, if you’re traveling over a big holiday or during peak season, or if you have no flexibility with the dates you have to fly, we recommend adding a few months to those numbers. Also, keep in mind that last-minute bargains are really uncommon. In fact, airlines typically raise prices on airfare as departure nears—especially 21, 14, and 7 days before a flight, so book before then if at all possible.

Try the Greek Islands Trick

Who doesn’t love a good travel hack? We’re particularly fond of what we call the Greek Islands Trick, though it works for places all over the world. The idea is that you’d first look for the cheapest flight that gets you closer (but not exactly) to where you want to be. Then, you’d find a separate transit method (another flight, a train trip, even a ferry) to make up the distance.

Let’s say you’re in New York and you want to go to Singapore, but you’re seeing fares around $1,200 and up roundtrip. Before you bite the bullet on that ticket, you might notice that flights from New York to Kuala Lumpur are around $975 roundtrip. Pair that with a roundtrip flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore for less than $70 and you’ve just saved a decent chunk of change. This kind of itinerary does require more attention to detail, but the savings can be worth it.

Look at fares from different departure airports

This is sort of like the opposite of the Greek Islands Trick—instead of considering different arrival airports to get where you want to go, you’re looking at different departure airports. People who live in cities with multiple big airports nearby already do this as a general rule, but it’s a good habit no matter where you live.

We see amazing deals on flights from airports all over the country, both big hubs and little regional airports, so it’s always a good idea to consider multiple departure options before you click the buy button. We’ve seen fares from LA to Japan for around $200 roundtrip, for instance, which is the kind of deal it’s nearly impossible to pass up, even if you have to book a $250 roundtrip flight to get to LAX from across the country.

Fly when airfare is usually cheaper

You may already know that airfare during peak season and over big holidays is more expensive, but there’s often a little more nuance to it—which is welcome news to the countless travelers who don’t have the flexibility to travel outside a popular high season. If you plan to travel over the summer, you can sometimes find cheaper fares during the first two weeks of June and the last two weeks of August. Thanksgiving is also something of a “secret” cheap week for international travel, since most people in the US are flying domestically.

Regardless of the season or holiday, though, you can usually save a little bit on airfare simply by scheduling flights on the days when it’s cheapest to fly (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays) and avoiding the most expensive days (Fridays and Sundays).

Sign up for fare alerts

Keeping track of the way airfare constantly fluctuates is exhausting, but there’s a tech solution that saves you time and headaches. Sign up for an airfare alert for a specific trip you want to take, and then you’ll get an email when the price of the ticket drops. If you’re considering multiple trips, you’ll need to set up multiple alerts. Or you can join Going and let us put our airfare expertise to work for you.

Frequently asked questions about flying to Singapore

What is the airport code for Singapore Changi Airport?

The airport code for Singapore Changi Airport is SIN.

When is high season in Singapore?

High season in Singapore is only partially related to the weather, since it doesn’t change too much throughout the year. The main high season (which is also part of the rainy season) runs from December-June, with a spike from December-February for holidays like Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and Lunar New Year.

Shopaholics arrive in droves from June-August for the famous sales, when being in a shopping mall can also help you escape the scorching temperatures. There’s another surge in tourism (and prices) each September when Formula One’s Singapore Grand Prix occurs.

When is the best time to visit Singapore?

Singapore is a city with a fairly consistent climate year-round: hot and humid. There are, however, two monsoon seasons and two relatively dry seasons. One of the dry seasons, from about February-April, is a great time to visit—it’s still somewhat in the high season, but usually after the biggest holidays.

What are the rules for traveling with pets to Singapore Changi Airport?

The requirements Singapore has for traveling with pets depend on what kind of animal it is and where you’re coming from. Travelers from the United States with a pet dog or cat, for instance, must make sure the animal has an appropriate microchip and is up-to-date on its rabies vaccines. There’s also an import license that must be obtained from Singapore for the animal, as well as a specific type of health certificate you must get before you leave the U.S. Finally, you must also schedule a pet inspection for your arrival in Singapore. Find out all of the specific details (and information about other kinds of pets coming from the U.S.) on the USDA website here—and be sure to check with your airline about flying with your pet.

At Singapore’s airport, travelers with service animals are escorted by airline personnel at all times, including directing you to animal relief areas if needed.
