    HI Cristian!


    There is no single best site. There are many sites and ways to save, depends on origin and destination. For expensive destinations its better to get professional help from flight experts. Check this out https://www.facebook.com/flystein/

      Flystein experts helped me to by 12-leg ticket to US And Europe and saved me thousands of dollars. I am used to by all my tickets myself and I was considering myself a savvy traveller, but to be honest I could find better prices. It is worth outsourcing your search and pay few dozens to save time and hundreds of dollars. i will definitely use flystein again. · (0 likelikes)

    First, clear your Cookies. If you are researching a trip to New York City, for example, these travel sites will know you are looking to travel and increase your fare. I would try sites like hopper to help you gauge when to by tickets depending on your destination.

    I often use www.momondo.com for finding cheap tickets, but there are several good search engines for that.

    I posted an article about the subject last week on my personal travel blog:http://travellingclaus.com/finding-cheap-plane-tickets/

    Skyscanner is a fantastic fare compare site. www.makemytrip.com is also one I personally use that gives you great deals and has a user-friendly interface.

    Hi Cristian. Finding deals on flights is always on the top of my travel checklist. Here are two websites that I recommend using: skyscanner.com & fly.com. Both sites save you time by searching through thousands of flight companies to find the cheapest option. Between the two I really like fly.com's calendar view because you can see the flight pricing for the whole month along with months before and in the future. You'll see what I mean when you actually go to fly.com website. Hopefully this was helpful and good luck on finding deals.

      Also works if you just type flights.google.com They updated it a few months ago, and it now consistently provides more flights and cheaper prices than other flight search engines. I especially like the feature that shows you a bar graph of flight prices, so it is easy to figure out the best day to fly. · (0 likelikes)

    I like Skyscanner, it compares a bunch of sites. If I notice a flight is all on the same carrier I will usually check through that carrier's site as well. Often times you can get a slightly better price o that way. If it's using multiple airlines then booking through a third party is going to better, though.

    Hi, All the websites has the similarity of providing the service, costing etc. Also to compare many websites is tiresome.

    The simple logic which I found is always use the local webiste of the particular country for more benifit in terms of costing, instead of visiting the mature websites.

    I was able to find the variations but honestly it may not be in all the cases or destinations.

    I like Skyscanner, Momondo and Expedia. If you are travelling in Europe always check the Ryanair website after midnight as some of the cheapie fares are dumped then.

    Bear in mind that many international tickets sold in Colombia do not have Carrier Imposed Fees (noted as YQ and YR surcharges). The same is true in Brazil. Of course the ticket must be issued in Colombia.

    So if you were to use search engines for OTA outside Colombia, you might see a totally different fare structure.

    The easy answer to your question is to simply search as many site as possible at the same time. No one source will win all the time.

    http://www.skyscanner.com/ and http://www.momondo.com/ are great sites for reference but ALWAYS check the airline site before booking. At times I have found the same flight cheaper.

    Hey Cristian, generally speaking Kayak is always delivering the best results for me, with one exception - one way tickets. If you want to book a one way ticket I always get the best prices on Cheap O Air. Another tip is to book your tickets on Tuesdays, the prices are always lower then. Cheers!
