Compare Prices Easily

Cheap Tickets  can help you to find the cheapest airfare, car rental prices, best prices for hotels, cruise comparisons, event tickets and more. I have been using this site for many years. It is easy to use and finds your search info quickly.
Some of my favorite  features are found  under the “Hotels Category”. You can search by hotel deals with free nights, hotel deals with extra savings, hotels under $100 and the “Cheap of the Week” .
There are no booking fees for airline tickets. However the price quotes do not include those annoying baggage fees that vary by carrier, so factor that in before making your final decision.
Here are the airlines that were included in the search on CheapTickets: United, American, Delta, Continental, NorthWest, US Airways, Jet Blue, Virgin America, Air Canada, Alaska and Virgin America.
Here is the link to view prices on  CheapTickets.
