Which site to use (or not) to book airfare

Jump to last reply

We're planning a trip to Sicily in May and I want to book open-jaw tickets, flying to Catania and home from Palermo. I see the best flights on Vayama, which I haven't used for awhile, but I'm seeing bad reviews for the site now. I had no trouble when I used them before. On other sites, including Hipmunk, Kayak, Google Travel etc. I'm having trouble finding flights with the right amount of time for layovers - I get a choice of an hour (too short for my taste on an international flight) or EIGHTEEN hours, a tad long for me.

Also, I can't believe the variance I'm seeing when I play around with the dates. I always book airfare first, so I can be flexible, but this is ridiculous. I'm seeing more reasonable layovers (on non-Vayama flights) on Fridays, and I've always thought booking mid-week was better. Have things changed? Any other sites I should be checking out?

Thanks as always for your expert help,
Alice
