I also like Kayak.com. However, they don’t carry all the airlines. Southwest Airlines is not in their search, so you would have to check that airline separately. Southwest is also often a good deal too.

Skyscanner.net shows you all airlines, including southwest.

I will say that all the flights you find are going to be extraordinarily expensive if you’re booking your flight one week out, though!

Cheapoair has been useful for international and some domestics flights!

RedHeadKel:  If your time is flexible (as in, it doesn’t matter if you depart in the early AM or late PM), bid using Priceline! You can get really good deals that way. Otherwise, like PPs have said – check out Kayak and make sure to search Southwest separately. 

Also, sometimes I’ve found it can be cheaper to book two separate one-way tickets rather than a round-trip ticket.

I second the recommendation for google flights!

RedHeadKel:  I always look on Kayak as others have said. 

If you hate/fear flying, I would avoid bidding on Priceline or similar sites. In my experience, I find that they often have connections, which probably would make things worse for someone with a fear of flying.

I never have to pay for flights but I’ve heard great things about google flights and it seems like pretty good deals!

Kayak and southwest. Sometimes Virgin if the others are exPenSive. I always buy on Tuesdays, fares are often cheapest then.

Personally, I always find the cheapest deals on Expedia.
