Just curious to see where everyone buys their airline tickets, or where you think the best deals are.
We’ve mostly used Priceline in the past, but generally check a host of other websites to compare before we finalize a purchase.

I’ve used Expedia twice for personal trips. For our honeymoon we used a travel agent but we actually looked at flights online first and told her to switch our booking from flying out of one city to a different one because it was waaaaaaaaaay cheaper. Somehow she didn’t see that.

90% of the time I use Southwest. In my experience they have been the cheapest. I also have to change my plans last min. a lot so its nice to be able to do so without being charged and arm and a leg.

Depends on the airline. Some you can’t access through sites like that.
I tend to use Kayak, and then check the airlines sites (liek Southwest or my CC’s site if I am using points/miles). I have found that Kayak, which searches all the major sites, is all encompassing and usually gets the best choices/prices.

I usually check prices with expedia or travelocity, then book directly from the airlines site or frome expedia. Usually if I check the airlines site, they show a few more different flight time options of the same price.

I’ve used Expedia. The last two trips I’ve taken I’ve purchased directly from Delta and Southwest. I usually try a few different places then purchase from the place that has the best price.

I always check prices on Bing or Expedia and then purchase directly from the airline website.

I second Kayak. I’ve been researching prices for international tickets and they have been the cheapest by far.

Sign up for airfarewatchdog.com! They send you an email every time there is a low fare to a destination you are wanting to travel to. It’s awesome. You have to book really quickly though because they sell out fast!
