Hey im using sky scanner to book tickets for a flight from heathrow to asia, are there certain factors to get the best saving possible, like looking at a certain time?

Are there particular agents that are cheaper if i go direct?

travel midweek seems top get better deals but there are so many factors

I'm doing Sun to Sun and getting the best rate.

I always check the airlines own websites. Occasionally there are deals that are only available direct. Also most airlines will accept certain credit cards without a surcharge whilst virtually all agents impose a surcharge.

don't forget cashback normally not much for a flight only but better than nothing

Hope you are ok with airport codes?

Where in Asia are you looking? Places such as RGN are rarely on offer, while places such as KUL are frequently on offer and with LCC (low cost carriers) its cheap to get about...

For an example SIN is rarely on offer, but you can fly to KUL and then fly to SIN or take the bus for a lot less than flying to SIN. I fly to MNL frequently and often fly to another country first (if booking in advance).

What time of year are you looking to travel and to which part of Asia?

September i have seen £366 to KUL and £363 to BKK - £416 to MNL - £414 to SGN - £434 HAN etc etc...
