    Does anyone know where I can find the high and low peaks for international travel to the States?
    I have family who want to visit during the Summer when kids are out of school. I'm trying to find out what the cut off dates are for cheaper travel and if one month is better than another?

    January is the absolute cheapest. And so are the months following.

    Northern Hemisphere summers would probably be most expensive. June-September.

    There are plenty or travel alert websites that notify you when cheap fares come along. Or you can check with a travel agent.

    Thanks. That's the problem, they'd be coming when it's Summer here and the kids are out of school. If we were going to Australia it would be the "off season" Jun - Sept.

    Book early. Try finding tickets for the summer in the early spring-late winter. Most airlines allow bookings a few months in advanced.
