How to Find the Cheapest Airfare Online

Searching for the cheapest airfare via dozens of travel websites is time consuming and deceiving because the low airfare can suddenly be mid to high when fees are added to it. Air ticket prices do vary considerably and depends on the time of year, location, numbers. Most of the websites access the same data provided by the airlines,yet the end result is different because of fees the websites may add. One can search for a flight to and from anywhere and end up with over 10 price combos from different websites or the same site. One key price reducer is: are you will to have lay overs waiting for a connecting flight, if so, how many? If you are willing for 1 or 2, your ticket will be lower versus a direct non-stop flight. Flying to popular destinations may also be cheaper, flying late at night is usually cheaper.

As for the better travel websites that seem to have the lowest prices constantly, check out Kayak, this sites gather fares from many sources and sends them to you. Try, OneTravel, which gets its data from many reservation systems. The third cheapest is Mobissimo. Tied for fourth place are Google (domestic only), Orbitz, Travelocity, Bing. The least cheapest many times is Expedia and Cheapoair.

The key to finding the lowest airfare is the age-old saying, "it pays to shop around", but try the Kayak, Onetravel first.
