He told his followers on X that easyJet is set to launch its March to June 2025 flights today (Tuesday) from around 6am.

Martin said: “Bagging them the moment they launch (browser refreshing type thing) is often (no guarantee) the way to get them at the cheapest possible rate.

“Flights can rise by £100s even after a couple of hours of launch morning.

“So if you’re going to book, try early.

“PS Cheapest possible, doesn’t necessarily mean cheap, do check what a decent rate is before booking.”

In the replies, Martin acknowledged prices can go up and down due to demand.

But he added: “Often lowest demand is at launch – based on our research – chance it dropping later is tough to predict.

“Locking in at launch is more certain.”

Meanwhile, Martin’s Money Saving Expert site has shared several tricks to “manipulate the budget airline and avoid extra fees”.

Tips include using a loophole to boost your hand luggage allowance by using a carrier bag.

The airline allows flyers to take one shopping bag on board, as well as a piece of hand luggage.

MSE also recommends taking squishable hand luggage as they are more likely to fit into overhead lockers as they start to fill up.

Martin’s team also urge holidaymakers to check in early to get a better seat at no extra cost.

The site reads: “You’ll have to pay if you want a specific seat, but the earlier you check in, the more likely it is that you get allocated a better seat.”

In another clever tip, the team suggested flyers can wear some of their luggage if it doesn’t fit in their bag.

And Martin’s MSE also warned travellers not to assume easyJet is always the cheapest and instead always compare airlines.
