websites for flight or last minute deals?

Hello,
I am looking for flights to Singapore and package deals (last minute also) to Cuba, Bali, Hawaii or India. Do you have any good websites to recommend? I could travel also from some other city than Zurich, if the prices are much lower.
Also i would like to know, if there is a website which shows the last minute deals of all the travel agencies. So far i know LTUR, Helvetic Tours and E-bookers for last minute deals.

Thanks a lot for help!

These are good comparison websites that i used often for flights. Easy to play around with to get good flights. Can include hotels too.

If you don't mind leaving from Brussels (Belgium), check out this site :
http://www.airstop.be

I have booked flight only and flight + hotels via this website many times and always at the best price.
Only thing is to get to Belgium,this can be done by train ( Tgv or Ice for good price) or bus (Eurlines from Basel or Zurich)

This German website is also not bad for flights and hotels:

Happy Travels,

Re: websites for flight or last minute deals?

Thanks a lot for your hints. I checked them and Skyscanner is really interesting and something different, but it has not worked for many days anymore (just searching forever).

I am surprised there is no website with all the travel agencies for last minute offers. In my home country this exists.

And would be so nice if there would be a website which would tell from which city are the best deals to go e.g. to Singapore

I would also recommend:

www.swoodoo.ch

I like this one as it saved my bacon a couple of times without bombarding me with emails later on.

Very handy site, but as with all these kind of consolidated sites, once you find your flights you can (sometimes but not always) get a cheaper rate directly from the carrier themselves.

Definitely good as a first port of call to see what routes are available, though.

Re: Flight tickets, search engine

I use Skyscanner for budget flights within Europe and Kayak for all other flights (although they do now also include budget airlines).
