Giving you access to beautiful beaches, dramatic natural beauty spots, famous wineries and varied culture, Cape Town is both a city destination in its own right and a gateway to the wider attractions of South Africa's Western Cape.
However, while more and more Brits are considering this iconic city for their holidays, the choice of Cape Town flights is not as wide as it could be. Direct flights to Cape Town are limited to the British Airways service from London Heathrow; there is much more scope to shop around for cheap flight deals if you go for an indirect service.
Book early. Last-minute return flights to Cape Town can cost well into four figures, particularly if you want to fly direct from Heathrow. If you’re willing to take an indirect route, your flights to Cape Town are likely to be substantially cheaper, though how much you save depends on where you stop and for how long.
The less straightforward routes will sometimes cost less. In terms of seasonality, for the best flight prices try to avoid December and the school holiday period in late July and August (when Cape Town's weather can be sketchy in any case).
Time and money: two things everyone wants to save when it comes to a holiday. And with these flight and airport hacks straight from the experts, travelling savvy will be a whole lot easierRead moreabout Ask the experts: How to save on your flights
