Cheap Flights to Phuket

It is not a blue moon task to skim cheap flight deals to Phuket, as many flight options are available via different routes and airlines. Direct flights to Phuket (HKT) are limited, but the connecting options are numerous. Since direct flights are pricier, it is a tedious task to finalise a cheap flight deal from the plethora of options, when the focus is on cheap airfare. TUI Airlines is the ONLY operator to have direct flights from London Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham to Phuket during the high winter season. And it is not a cheap option.

The cheapest tickets are for economy class on Swiss Airlines. It offers the lowest one-way airfare at £315, while Turkish Airlines has a return ticket for £561 and Cathay Pacific for £578. The average return ticket airfare is between £737 - £787 can be considered a good deal. Singapore Airlines is offering a deal at £788 with a stopover in Singapore to catch a connecting flight to Phuket. The UK to Bangkok flight is an international route, and the domestic flight from Bangkok to Phuket can be covered with low-cost carriers like Bangkok Airways, Thai Airways, or AirAsia to get cheap flight deals. If you want to get advice, seek Myflightpal flight experts.

Fly Round-Trip from London to Phuket

It is better to have end-to-end bookings in place before the actual trip. It costs cheaper on average than one-way tickets. And if you opt for an all-inclusive package, there can be further discounted deals, lowering the price. It saves you from stress and hassles, plus you get financial savings for shopping and enjoying activities at the destination. For example, the lowest one-way airfare by Swissair is £315, but the lowest round trip airfare is £561, much less than the expected least of £630.

Top Tips for Finding Cheap Flights to Phuket

1. Plan and play in advance

Plan and book the flight tickets with all due consideration for airfare and available upgrades in advance, preferably six weeks before the actual flight. It is a standard dictum.

2. Knowledge is never a waste

It ultimately helps to know the pricing trends and industry hacks to make a decision. Knowledge can help you with upgrades and haggling for cheap flight deals.

3. Hard work always pays off

Perseverance has always been a big bonus. Please do some real spadework to gain knowledge of the pricing trends and available options for bargained flight ticket prices.

4. Travel Simply and Smart

If you are a fewer-frills character, be flexible with airlines or connecting flights and destinations. Please travel with relevant luggage only to avoid paying for excess baggage. Similarly, one doesn’t have to travel business class for short flights as it causes unnecessary expense. Don’t be too particular about airlines if there are options for the same service.

Things to know before Travelling to Phuket

  • Weather and Climate: Humidity is a factor, and sometimes it can rain cats and dogs, especially during rainy August and September. Be prepared suitably. Mosquito repellent is also a handy carriage at all times.
  • Food Availability: Tap water is not potable, so remember to tag along a water bottle.
  • Dress and Culture: It is in the tropical countryside and near the sea. So no cold winter wear is needed as such.
  • Currency Exchange: Baht is the national currency.
  • Electronic plugs and adaptors should be two-pin ones in Thailand.
  • Local Language and a translator app would be handy as English is a two-left-foot phenomenon in most parts of the country.
  • Thailand is a left-hand-driving nation.

Reasons to visit Phuket

Phuket has a busy international airport around 32 km from the city centre. Thalang Road is impressive with Sino-Portuguese architecture and vibrant shops, of which the Thai Hua Museum and Baan Chinpracha mansion are notable. Phuket Island's coastline is blessed with several renowned beaches like Rawai, Patong, Karon, and Kamala. Lai Phromthep is the famous sunset viewpoint in Phuket. One can go for endless beach activities like snorkelling, windsurfing and sailing here, if not grooving to beach nightlife. Phuket has all to catch and match European imagination, a reason enough for the itinerant Brit at a very viable price tag as Thailand is an affordable destination. Another reason for British affinity to Phuket is that British passport holders can enter and stay in Thailand for a maximum of 45 days without visa formality.
