Last year we booked our July and August trips as soon as they were released, but then found they were cheaper much later. In fact we changed our August return just a few weeks before the flight and didn't have to pay any extra which suggested we had paid a premium.

I think the Easyjet model assumes that a lot of people book as soon as they are released and therefore don't offer the cheapest prices.

I know you can claim back if you find the flight cheaper later, but you need to be quite organised to do that. You need to print off the page which shows the individual flight prices before you go to payment. After that you only get a total price which makes it more difficult to argue your case.

We will wait a while before we book. Just before Christmas is a good time as most people are spending on Christmas and not on flights which prompts the airline to offer more attractive prices.

A lot of people book just after Christmas too, so i always avoid that time

I wonder if easyJet prices depend upon the UK airport charges? We fly from Liverpool and they are always pretty decent.

Managed to get April flights from Edinburgh cheaper than from NCL and similar to LPL. No travelling, and no overnight stay. This is a first

We too have booked to and from Edinburgh rather than Newcastle with Easyjet as the price difference is considerable in July and August. We have done this for the past two years. Lovely train ride up the scenic Northumberland coast using the Friends and Family Railcard (discounted price on the train tickets) and then a short Airport Shuttle bus to the airport. Booked last night and got three people from Edinburgh to Palma with seats and 2 pieces of hold luggage for £178.00 for all three of us.

Newcastle prices in the summer are just so steep! Much better though in April, May, June or September, October.

Bekki, that seems like a bargain price for 3 people. What dates are you travelling? Another wee break on the cards perhaps

We got a similar good deal flying from Edinburgh mid August. We put the price difference (between Scottish and northern England airports) down to Scottish schools going back 2/3 weeks earlier than English schools.

Altogether, a very pleasant experience flying from Edinburgh. Perhaps a wee bit too far from East Lancashire, but if the flight prices are right versus extra travel expenses, worth doing.

There are loads of suggestions about saving money on EasyJet flights on Martin Lewis website (moneysavingexpert.com).

18 Easyjet tricks: How to manipulate the budget behemoth - MSE

I got up early on 3rd and booked mid-week return flights from London Southend in June for two people for under £100 in total. I looked on their website in the evening and the price had nearly doubled!

I'm unsure whether to book early or not? Brexit will no doubt make a lot of people wary about travelling to Europe, the exchange rate may have a considerable impact on the cost. I'm worried that easyJet will initially have high prices knowing some people will think they will only increase and then reduce prices when tickets are slow to sell? They no longer offer their price guarantee. We are not planning to travel at peak times so I'll just take a look, if price is what I expect I'll book, if high I'll wait I suppose. What do others think?

Newcastle is officially the most expensive airport in the UK, according to a recent report!! As a regular user of this airport I can believe it.....

I think I'd agree with you roig cat. Didn't mind so much when we could use their price guarantee but now, once you're booked, you're booked with no way of getting anything back if fares go down......as no doubt they will

We always used NCL in the past but more recently the prices have gone through the roof and we are now looking elsewhere.......even Scotland which was always a no no before We stay midway between Glasgow and Edinburgh airports and until recently very seldomed used them.
