Reliable/Cheap Ticket Sources?


My wife & I have just decided to travel to Australia this XMas/New Years. I know it's last-minute & the height of the tourist season, but that can't be helped.

Besides going through the airlines themselves, does anyone have any good Web sources for cheap tickets?

Please only refer companies that you've used in the past & had a good experience with. No travel agents please.

TIA!

You might try www.goway.com/
Phone:1-800-387-8850, ask for Erika.
She got me tickets from Honolulu to Rarotonga on Aloha Air for less than half of what Aloha Air or Expedia were charging. Efficient, very pleasant.

Tia,

I did a similar thing in 1998...on Dec 20th I decided I wanted to go from Chicago to Sydney and Melbourne for Christmas and New Years. I used flightconsolidators.com.au (actually, I called them) who operate out of Los Angeles. Whereas the airlines were charging around $5KUS for economy, I got a ticket for leaving a few days later (the 23rd) for about $1000US. Although those fares are long gone, my thoughts are Flightconsolidators were extremely good value and professional.
