Flights to Italy - using a consolidator?

Jump to last reply

It's finally time to make our spring trip to Italy official! My parents have committed to watching our daughter for two weeks, so I'm ready to start doing some more concrete planning. Which brings me to plane tickets. I've been looking at flights for months, and they have pretty much stayed the same - $1200 roundtrip - planning to fly into Venice and out of Rome. I would be willing to do a roundtrip in and out of one city, but there are no savings for that I can find on the standard websites. I live in Jackson Hole, WY so we never have cheap fares, but checking from Salt Lake (the nearest major airport which is 4-5 hours away) it is the same price. We are very flexible with our dates and are just looking for a roughly two week trip sometime in April and May.

I get that flights are really expensive these days, but I'm hoping to find a better deal. My mom suggested using a consolidator. I don't really know how to find a reputable one, or what the options are, or if I should only go that route through a travel agent. There are several older threads on Fodor's regarding consolidators, but websites change so fast and new ones are always popping up, so I wanted to get some up-to-date feedback. I expect that consolidators won't have offerings out of Jackson Hole, but we are fine to drive to SLC.

Any thoughts?
