Fees are listed one-way for domestic flights only.  Price range usually indicates lower fee at time of booking and higher fee at the airport

* Note that many airlines charge a fee for making reservations over the phone

** Most routes operate less than daily, often times 1 to 3 times weekly

*** Not a toll free number



Travel Booking Sites:

If your booking airfare only, it's best to book directly through the airline. 
Kayak Best for searching for low fares

Expedia (dot com!)

Reservations, vacation package discounts


Deals on hotel rooms


Like Priceline but no bidding. No refunds.   Read restrictions carefully!


Name your own price.  Must submit credit card  in order to make offer.  No refunds.   Read restrictions carefully!

Also available are Express Deals which is the lowest price but you still don't know what hotel it is until you book and still no refunds or changes.


Best for packages
