Tips on Finding Cheap Flights to Guilin
1. Avoid flying to Guilin in peak season and holidays. Generally, the discount on domestic flight ticket fare in low season from November to next March varies between 30%-60% off, in peak season from April to October changes between 20%-40% off. In holidays like Chinese New Year and National Day Holiday, there may be no discount at all.
2. For international passengers, check the flight ticket to nearby cities like Guangzhou and Shenzhen. If the fare to these cities is much lower, you can choose to fly there and then change to a high speed train to Guilin.
3. Fly with the no frill airlines like Spring Airways or Asiana Airlines. However, if you get a cheap flight ticket from these airlines, make sure you know the luggage allowance because it is often very little. If you think the luggage allowance is not enough for you, it is more recommended to buy extra baggage allowance on the official websites of the airlines beforehand, because the cost will be cheaper than at the airport.
4. The flight with a stopover is sometimes cheaper than the through flight.
5. The round-trip flight ticket usually enjoys higher discount than a single-trip ticket.
