cheap flights - which website is best

hello,
Since I would like to visit my home town preferably once a month, I am looking for good websites to search for cheap flights. I know of skyscanner and check felix, but I was wondering if there are any other recommendable sites (which do not charge a fee).
Any help is appreciated.

This website will show you the cheapest fares available:

http://matrix.itasoftware.com/

You can't buy the ticket there, but if you note the details any travel agent should be able to book it for you.

If you need to do a multi city trip I'd recommend http://www.kayak.co.uk/ saves opening endless browsers trying to arrange all the connections

Re: cheap flights - which website is best

Re: cheap flights - which website is best

I avoid search sites like Skyscanners as they’re not a travel agent. The flights there are advertised by a mixed bag of agents, at least some of whom are disreputable.
The flight might look cheap until you realize too late that the agent charges you 10% or more extra as a payment fee and has useless compulsory insurance on top, as happened to me.

I use ebookers, and have rarely had problems with them, make sure the site you use is a known travel agent and not just a search engine.

Re: cheap flights - which website is best

kayak is the very best. check all the locales (kayak.de, kayak.com, kayak.ch, etc) to find the best deals. it also shows you everything from the type of plane to the price trends so you can make sure you're getting the best price. just unclick the price comparison to avoid popups.
