Cheap flights to Phuket

Thailand’s largest island, Phuket, is suspended from the southern tip of Phang Nga province. There’s such a variety of experiences on offer here – from diving, beaches, delicious food and fun-filled parties – that visitors keep coming back for more.

When to book flights to Phuket

Blessed with a tropical climate, it never really gets too cold in Phuket, although there is some variation in temperature throughout the year. Plus, there’s a distinct rainy season when you should expect regular downpours.

Generally, the high tourism season is from November through to February. At this time, it is cool and dry, remaining fairly hot until the end of May.

Monsoon season then starts, and it can be wet right up until October. However, during the rainy season Phuket is much more peaceful and quiet, without the crowds. Plus, there are still plenty of hours of uninterrupted sun and, it’s usually easier to get good deals on flights to Phuket at this time.

How to find the best flight deals to Phuket

As well as being smart about when you travel, there are other ways you can secure cheap flights to Phuket. It’s all about knowing how to carry out your search.

Expedia ensures you are always offered the best value flight deals for your chosen dates, from your selected airports.

But, if you can be a little flexible about your date of travel, you might be able to save more.

Click on the ‘Flexible Dates’ option to see flight prices for the days around your suggested day of flight – because of the way many tour operators work, you might be able to get better deals on certain days of the week.

Similarly, using the ‘Nearby Airports’ option allows you to explore deals available from a wider selection of UK airports.

UK departures to Phuket

There are numerous departures to Phuket from London and other UK cities, with several flights often available each day.

These include:

Phuket Airport

Phuket International Airport is located around 20 miles from Phuket City. It’s the main airport serving the province. As a very popular destination, it’s a busy hub of travel, with flights arriving from around the world. More than 15 million passengers a year use the airport, making it Thailand’s third busiest.

There’s a big choice of available taxi and shuttle options, mostly reasonably priced. Some of the larger resorts will also offer services to meet you at the airport, so you can avoid the rush for a taxi.

Which airlines fly to Phuket?

Indirect and direct flights to Phuket are available from a number of different carriers.

These include:

  • British Airways
  • Qatar Airways
  • Malaysia Airlines
  • KLM
  • Emirates
  • THAI

How to get to and around Phuket

As a large island, if you want to see more of Phuket you’ll need to use some kind of motorised transport – but there are plenty of options.

There’s a big network connecting Phuket city to the many resort destinations, mostly using songthaews, which are converted pick-ups used as makeshift buses. Journeys are usually cheap but perhaps not the most comfortable. Just flag one down when you need it.

There are also plenty of regular taxis, motorbike taxis and tuk-tuk taxis buzzing around. But you’ll need to negotiate a price first.

Renting a car or motorbike is probably the best way of getting off the beaten track. Remember that the roads can be busy, with plenty of scooter and pedestrian traffic, so it’s best to drive cautiously.

What are the must-sees in Phuket?

There are a number of small and beautiful smaller islands around Phuket, such as Phang-nga Bay and Khai island. Charter a boat to get away from the crowds and discover some clear waters all to yourself. There are plenty of boats available, from high-end cruisers to nippy speedboats.

The beaches in Phuket are another clear attraction, and for most of the year bathing is safe and relaxed. During monsoon season the waves can get up, so it’s time to grab your board and surf some waves. Diving and snorkelling are also both very popular activities here.

Tips for travelling in Phuket

If you’re travelling to Thailand for less than 30 days, you do not need a visa if you are a UK passport holder. If you need to stay longer you can apply for an extension. If you overstay your visa without the correct permission, you may be subject to a fine. When entering Thailand, officials may ask you for proof of onward or return travel, or evidence of funds in order to purchase tickets.

The flight was very good value for money, however check-in at DMK could be made easier if we didn’t have to print off our own luggage labels and then check-in our hold luggage ourself.
