Flights to Wave Gothic Treffen - WGT

When to get your flight

This is one of the hardest things to decide, there is a trade off between Price, Worry & getting a Good Flight Time - which if you work can be a major issue.

The best advice is to keep an eye on the travel websites.

My general formula is this :-

  • To estimate what the price will be this year I look about 4-5 week out from today on Expedia.
  • Pick the same days of the week that you want to go, leaving on Wednesday & coming back Tuesday? try putting in Wed 4 weeks from now & Tue 5 weeks from now.  This will give you a rough idea on the price.
  • What tends to happen is the price "window" moves so the low prices will be "over" the Treffen dates at some point.
  • How much you wait will depend on your level of worry, I'm usually looking for good flight times and willing to pay more for them.
