But thanks to a new study from, we now have some guidelines for the best time to book international flights. (Don’t worry, we’ll still be over here clicking refresh for all the domestic trips we’ve got coming up.) 

According to the study, which analyzed a million airfares to more than 3,000 international markets, the best time to book flights for the lowest fares (aka the“prime booking window”) varies by destination. Here’s how many days out to book your flight based on where you’re going.

Canada: 66 days
Mexico and Central America: 70 days
Caribbean: 207 days
South America: 110 days
Europe: 160 days
Africa: 199 days
Middle East: 199 days
South Pacific: 197 days
Asia: 120 days

This puts us right on the money to book our trip to that German wiener dog museum we just discovered. Who’s with us?!
