Another single ticket vs. two ticket question re baggage

Jump to last reply

I'm thinking this may be a dumb question with an obvious answer, but I've always only booked my air tickets on the carrier's actual website before, so I'm not sure.

If I use a website such as Expedia, Travelocity or Orbitz, plan a multi-city trip and am offered tickets using various airlines for the different legs, does this count as a single ticket for baggage checking purposes - meaning that the airlines will check my luggage through to each leg's final destination without me having to retrieve and recheck?

For example, to get to Eureka/Arcata in California, the ticket has me flying from HNL to SMF on Hawaiian Air, then connecting on United to get to ACV. A few days later when I want to go to SEA, the flights for that leg use United and Alaska Air.

I know I can book United for the entire trip, but it's quite expensive to go exclusively on United vs. using different carriers for different legs.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
