I have recently become enamored of two websites designed for finding cheap airfare. Rather than go to a thousand different websites looking for a variey of deals, these pool all these sites in one fairly easy to use interface.

It is fascinating to see all the different places you can go in this world and for the amount of money one might have to spend. This is the first step in turning dreams into reality, to see a pragmatic solution to inspiration.

One thought on “Airfare websites”
  1. If you like Kayak, I think you’ll also enjoy Sidestep. It’s very similar to Kayak, but I like the fact that there’s a bunch of travel information available on their site. It’s also easy to use and their deals section has a tendency to surprise me with what they have.
