How far in advance can you book a flight?

Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing 1-3 weeks prior to travel.

                                This doesn't seem like good value given the walking distance to town and the shared toilets and showers. There's also no way to have the room warm when you get up in the morning due to a timer switch. It's not a bad place to stay but there are better places.
