Best way to book airfare

We are looking to travel some time between the end of October and end of November. What would be our best options for booking airfare and what might be considered a "good price"? We'll be flying out of Kansas City (could fly out of St. Louis if it's much cheaper). We plan to stay on St. John. Any help is appreciated! Thanks! Nicolle

Check out kayak.com. It will search all the airfare sites at once and let you know what the going price is for your dates. It also lets you search nearby airports so you can determine whether it is cheaper to fly out of or to a different airport.

We've had the best luck flying with AAvacations (American Airlines) not only do they book our flight but take care of lodging as well. Anytime which has not been often we've had resort issues they are quick to resolve and have always been very accomodating to our needs. I suggest flying to St. Thomas and taking the ferry over to St. Johns and then staying at the Westin a great resort.

Enjoy

Orbitz.com does the same as Kayak.com. Sometimes it is a little less expensive to book directly through the airlines website after you check rates on Orbitz or Kayak. We just flew US Air from LIT to SXM and it was great. Also if you are renting a villa, www.cvoa.com has competitive fares! Have a great trip!

You might want to check the airlines. We are flying from Cincinnati to St Thomas via Chicago and San Jaun PR. Be warned that it most likely be an all day trip to get down there. Arrival time most likely will be anywhere after 4-10pm. I checked the Kayak website and Orbitz and Travelocity etc and still found the airlines to be cheaper. The other places typically ad surcharges or booking fees to your ticket. The airlines (at least from the ones that I have seen) do not. You may want to look at American Airlines they were extremely reasonable (believe it or not) flying from Cincinnati.
