dilemma re booking flights. any help much appreciated x
We've booked a private apartment in Mallorca for the summer holidays next year (2017). I've been having a look at flights and some are available with Thomson and Jet2 and are coming in at around £290 per person (including luggage, etc). It's been a long time since we booked a holiday that wasn't a package so I'm feeling a little lost as to what to expect to pay for flights. Just unsure as to whether to book now or if it's likely that the prices will come down.
There are 8 of us travelling (6 adults and 2 children, aged 5 and 3). We want to fly from Leeds Bradford is Doncaster (not really prepared to travel to Manchester or Liverpool because it's just too far/awkward for some members of our party).
We are stuck to dates because of the accomodation (friday 11th August to friday 25th August) and there don't seem to be a great deal of options for friday flights to Palma (e.g. Ryanair haven't flown from Leeds to palma on a Friday this year...). Looks as though Thomson and Jet2 will be our best bets.
Can anyone give me an idea of whether we might be better of waiting, or if we should just go for it? Anyone care to share what they pay for flights to Palma? And when you booked.
Last minute isn't an option due to the size of our party and the fact that we are stuck to specific dates.
