Web Wednesday: Best Sites for Cheap Flights + Other Travel Deals

by on November 10th, 2010

I’m not sure who told me about Kayak.com but whoever did has saved me, and I’m sure everyone else they’ve told – lots of money. This site, unlike many others, compiles various airlines, and allows you to customize everything from traveling to different airports, what time you arrive, the number of non-stops you prefer, etc. It uses other websites (the traditional travel ones – Orbitz.com, Travelocity.com and also airline websites) to give you the most competitive prices available.

This is the best website to use for buying flights. Although I’ve never used it to book a hotel, or a car, you can also use this site for those services. Bing.com is Microsoft’s way of telling us-we’re bigger and badder than Kayak because we can predict the future (farecast predicator) – Ooooohhhh! Ahhhh!

Bing has all the features Kayak has + the added benefit of letting you know, visually, the price patterns of a specific search that you’ve just entered. Kayak shows you on their main page, how the prices vary from date to date, so if you’re flexible it helps a lot. Going to Bing.com allows you to choose what you want to do – but if you click here you’ll get to go straight into journey of finding a cheap flight.

(FYI – I like to think I am a travel expert…I do it too often and have a lot of experience so if you EVER have questions – feel free to email me at radirisd@cutegeek.com – I’ll help answer any questions – especially if you don’t want to ask Google)

    I’d like to mention that Kayak has another amazing feature that I’ve been using if you don’t know where you want travel to, it’s under ‘More > Explore’. This feature allows you to input your departure airport and the month in which you wish to travel. It will then show you a google map with the average airfare price to multiple destinations! I love it!
