I would probably steer away from it just based on the fact that I’ve never heard of it before. Try Kayak or Bing. You can sign up for alerts from Bing and they will tell you when the fares are rising or falling and when you should buy.

If you got search returns saying it’s a scam, it probably is. At the very least, you can expect to get horrible customer service – and that’s not something you want. Not worth the savings to me! Also, think about it – how would it even be possible for a site that doesn’t have the status of a larger site like kayak or expedia to have access to better rates? Sounds too good to be true.

Always always, always, book your tickets directly with the airline if you’re doing your own air. Flight schedules change all the time, and I could tell you horror stories about people who had their flight schedules change that were never notified by the third party site. And if something goes wrong, the airline won’t work with you on it-they will refer you back to the third party site.

@Mrs. Spring: Companies pay BBB to give them good ratings… Its sad but true.  Don’t make a decision based on a good BBB rating.  Do some research and see what people, like you and me, are saying.  If “scam” is mentioned here and there, then flee.

Don’t know about this particular site, but I’ve gotten great deals on lesser known travel sites like cheaptickets.com before. A lot of travel agencies with discounts are operating websites nowadays. I fly international a lot and rarely go directly through the airline. Still, if the search is bringing up scams that would make me wary too.
