|Subject: Re: Airfares and booking hotels|
I try to keep abreast of the Web sites for finding airfares; a new one has
come to my attention at http://www.qixo.com . Often the different search
engines show different fares at the same time; QIXO searches across the
different sites and consolidator sites for international travel. It gives
the first results quickly and keeps refreshing the results as more sites
respond; note on the side of the screen if it says that several sites have
timed out; you may want to check some of those sites directly. QIXO says
it's adding hotels and car rentals soon; this could be useful (I'm
speaking strictly as a consumer).
For hotels I generally get good results from the site of Travelers Advantage of which I am a member, but I'm not sure if it's worth the dues. I'm usually just looking for a room at a low price and a location I can understand. I have a few more weeks before I see how the cheap place I've booked in Lisbon works out.
