You better watch out and we're telling you why: The next three weeks will be the best time to snag the cheapest fare for your Christmas hols.

You better not cry if you were to act too slowly for the best deals, which can save you about 21 per cent on the average and up to nearly 40 per cent.

A study by travel search engine Skyscanner reveals that many Singaporeans were too tardy in booking for their year-end vacation in the past two years and ended up paying much more than they should.

So be fast for goodness sake as the last two weeks of August will present the sweetest spot for flight bookings, Skyscanner told AsiaOne.

It seems Santa is coming to town with great deals like these: You can enjoy savings of nearly 40 per cent for flights to Penang, over 30 per cent for Jakarta and Kuching, and 20 per cent for Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo.
