We're planning a trip to Scotland this summer in either June or late August. Traditionally when is a good time to buy tickets? We would be going for about 2 weeks and there are 4 of us. We are leaving from Minneapolis and ideally would fly to Glasgow.

I saw some tickets fro $900 and few weeks ago. Is that a good price? Is it better to buy earlier or closer to the time? Any chance lower gas prices will help?

Any experienced travelers have some ideas? Thanks!

Typically 8-10 weeks out is the best bet for Europe. I think it will be several months before fuel prices affect ticket prices, and $900 isn't a bad price at all.

I'm guessing that price is on Iceland Air, and they probably won't go much cheaper than that. I'd take the $900 ticket, which is decent for European summer travel, and enjoy the Iceland stopover option.
