  • I like to try and They will do the searches for you. Also try since the main search sites don't include southwest. Also try jetblue's website since some of the search sites don't include jetblue either.

  • Honestly, I work for a travel agency full time. If you go through an agency you have to pay for a service fee. You can get the same deals on airline online as they do. So by pass the service fee. Also before an agency was great because they were the only ones that could do exchanges and voids but know that is a possibility with the carriers directly.
    Little hint. Say you want to fly out of one airport and on your way back into another you can do this online BUT you will need to purchase 2 one way tickets. One for your first part of the trip and the second for the second part of your trip.

  • Southwest isn't the cheapest.
    And yes, online.
    The best rates would be red eye flights (flights late at night into the morning hours)

    And yes, I have used these sites.
