While flight prices are up 28% on average from a year ago, the summer travel season is still in full swing, and travel searches are up around 46% , compared to 2022.

While bali, in Indonesia, is the most popular summer 2023 travel destination on kayak.fr, is the summer period the best to go there? The new toolBest time to travelfrom the world’s leading travel search engine will surprise you with its response.

According to the study “World of Opinions 2023” published a few weeks ago, 7 in 10 respondents (69%) say it is increasingly difficult for them to know what opinions to trust when it comes to travel.

“Best Time to Travel” helps travelers make informed, information-based decisions on their own such as:

  • the price
  • the crowd
  • weather

With over 280,000 routes to choose from, this new tool integrates predictive data from billions of travel requests on Kayak to predict future flight and hotel prices. Travelers can then easily compare prices using weather and seasonal information to determine the best time for their next trip.

For example, although it is THE summer destination, the best month to visit Bali – arriving at Denpasar airport – is November, due to lower flight prices, good weather and no crowd.
