We sifted through hundreds of travel companies, and put the best values for plane tickets, rental cars, and cruise tickets here -- all in one place!
Air The following two sites, Orbitz and CheapoAir consistently give the best airfares. Check the others, to be sure...
☼ StudentUniverse.com Are you a student? If so, you can get highly discounted airfares with StudentUniverse. You need to know that if you are older than 25, even if you are a bona-fide, full-time student, you won't qualify. You must be younger than 25 years old. Also, the airlines do not allocate an unlimited number of seats for the available destinations, so plan to book several months in advance. Also, only a few domestic and international destinations are available. Finally, don't assume that StudentUnivers's rates are the lowest or most discounted. You may still find a cheaper fare with one of our other search engines above.
The only other student travel site is STA Travel. STA Travel has been around for decades and has offices all over the world. So if you are in a bind in Bangkok, get downtown and drop in their office.
Additional airline flight searches and sites to try: ☼CheapOair.com: If you can fly on short notice, you can save up to 65% on flights. by using CheapOair to book last minute flight tickets. ☼CheapTickets.com ☼Delta.com ☼Expedia.com travel specials ☼Hotwire Hot-Fares: Search most of the standard airline webfares--all at once:
Airtran, AmericaWest, Alaska, ATA, Aloha, Continental, Delta, easyJet, Frontier, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Jetsgo, Spirit, Singapore, United, USAirways, and WestJet. Hotwire also searches airfare search sites such as Cheapseats, Europebyair, and OPODO. ☼ Priceline.com has cleaned up their act a lot since they got a bad customer service reputation in the late 1990s. It seems they have worked out many bugs. They still have excellent airfares, car rental rates and hotel room prices. ☼Skytours: When Skytours first opened, they had amazingly low fares, lower than any other website. I think one reason for this was that they are based in Germany, and the currency exchange rate allowed them to issue the tickets taking advantage of that. ☼Travelocity
☼United Air special deals
Car Rental ☼ Prices on rental cars vary more than you might think. We recently compared minivan rental rates of all six major car rental agencies. Dollar was by far the cheapest.
