Book ASAP. Christmas is absolute PEAK time in Thailand - flights will not get cheaper and availability will be less.

Cheapest to book now. Christmas is peak season so prices don't usually come down.

The flight prices will be more likely to increase the closer you get to the peak period.

Sorry to piggyback on this but I am going in November - around Thanksgiving which is an American holiday so am I safe to assume I can get my Phuket flights later? Any advantages to booking early/later in terms of pricing?

For my experience it is never an advantage to book flight tickets later in Thailand.

It's nearly always cheaper booking well in advance. Unless you book on a sale especially when booking low cost carriers

Air Asia, Nok Air or Thai Lion Air are all budget airlines for domestic flying.
