If you've been hankering for some new stamps in your passport, this may be your lucky year. Airfare price prediction website Hopper forecasts that flights to a number of international destinations may soon get cheaper, with fares dropping as much as 46% from their current prices. Hopper cites a number of potential factors for this decline, including a recent slight decrease in the cost of jet fuel as well as WOW Air's recent bankruptcy, lowering competition amongst foreign low-cost carriers.

Hopper predicts flight prices to these top destinations will drop after the month of May:

  1. Porto, Portugal
    Current average price: $628
    Predicted price drop: 46%
  2. Cancún, Mexico
    Current average price: $350
    Predicted price drop: 44%
  3. Vieux Fort, Saint Lucia
    Current average price: $591
    Predicted price drop: 39%
  4. Phuket Town, Thailand
    Current average price: $724
    Predicted price drop: 37%
  5. Havana, Cuba
    Current average price: $292
    Predicted price drop: 35%
  6. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
    Current average price: $318
    Predicted price drop: 35%
  7. Vancouver, Canada
    Current average price: $241
    Predicted price drop: 31%
  8. Milan, Italy
    Current average price: $643
    Predicted price drop: 30%
  9. Medellin, Colombia
    Current average price: $344
    Predicted price drop: 30%
  10. Munich, Germany
    Current average price: $832
    Predicted price drop: 29%

Of course, these are merely forecasted price drops, but Hopper claims to predict future flight prices with 95% accuracy. You can use the “Watch This Trip” function within the app to monitor prices on your top destinations and receive alerts as soon as fares decrease. Based on other sale trends of late, most of the discounted fare dates will be for travel in late August through October, after summer peak season is over.
