Money Saving Expert reports that tickets for travel from 1 December 2023 to 23 March 2024 are due to go on sale at the easyJet website tomorrow, Thursday 9 March.

The website explains that easyJet’s prices are fluid and move based on demand for any particular flight. They’re usually priced cheaply when released, but this can change quickly depending on how many people are booking. So if you can pounce when they’re launched, you’re often getting the very cheapest deal.

easyJet hasn’t confirmed the exact time but it usually says tickets will be released first thing in the morning, around 6:00 am. However, MoneySavers have reported finding seats on sale even earlier than this on previous seat-release days. So to have the best chance of nabbing the cheapest tickets, check the easyJet site as early as you can.  Of course, Easyjet may break convention and these prices may not be cheapest. But in the past, booking on seat-release day has worked well. Use common sense when you see the price though, and always do a flight comparison to see if other airlines beat it.

MSE also says that it is important to always double-check the price before checking out. MoneySavers have reported that prices can rise during the booking process at busy times, so make sure you’re happy with the final price before paying. On this, easyJet’s press office told MSE: “On sale dates the system is always exceptionally busy. Our pricing is demand-led with fares starting low and rising as more seats are booked, so prices do increase when led by strong demand.”

Seat release days haven’t been big events over the last few years according to the website, due to the impact of the pandemic on travel. However, lots of MoneySavers have managed to find bargains previously.

The same website reports that easyJet has axed its free refund trick for most. The price promise guaranteed that if you do find the same flight for less after booking, you’ll get the difference back as a credit voucher, which you have to use within six months. You’ll need to have booked direct though, and you won’t get the difference back if the lower price you’ve found is a sale price.

Until 2017, this refund trick was open to all, and it’s been a favourite of MoneySavers over the past few years. But Easyjet now only offers this if you’re a member of – or join – Easyjet Plus or Flight Club.

With Easyjet Plus, only individual members are covered by the price promise – with Flight Club, everyone on the booking is eligible. You can also do the trick if you join Easyjet Plus or Flight Club AFTER booking your flight.
