Airline & Travel: 

The latest way to find the cheapest prices for airline flights is to go directly to the airline's site.  So, 1st go to Expedia.com , then Orbitz - The Travel Site with the Most Web-Only Rates on the Internet!, then Cheap Tickets  put in the flight you are interested in.  Note what airlines are listed.  NOW, go to each airline's site and look for a link for something like: "On-line specials" or "Internet specials", something like that.  There are some incredible savings this way.  I booked a round trip flight from San Francisco to Venice Italy on Delta Airlines for $426!!!  

 
http://www.sidestep.com You must download a small app. that runs in your browser.  It then searches about 80 travel vendors. http://www.qixo.com - searches 20 sites including www.Travelocity.com, Cheap Tickets and more.

You must be very flexible to use this service!  But if you can be a little flexible you can get some great prices on flights!!

But be aware.  You must give them a charge card number before you register.  Then when you 'bid' on a seat, it's yours if the airline agrees.... You can't specify flight times.  So the airline can give you the worst flight.  But the savings can be considerable!!
