Links for getting flights

2:38 pm community, gnome, guadec

After my last post, a few really useful links came out in the comments, they’re worthy of getting more attention, on top of sites like expedia.com (where I got my tickets).

Edward Hervey recommended kayak.com – a nice web 2.0 site that aggregates low-cost airlines as well as traditional airlines, shows you prices on or around your flight dates for more options. It didn’t find my train-and-plane combo, while Expedia did, but definitely worth a try.

Nelson pointed to the websites of three airlines that fly to Gran Canaria, for those who want to look to the source: aireuropa.com which I mentioned, vueling.com and spanair.com – as far as I can tell, these are all covered by the above agregator sites.

And sdf (quite possibly a spammer, but maybe not) pointed to tuifly, a German no-frills who flies to Gran Canaria from a wide variety of German sites.

    I’ve found Mobissimo equally usable and slightly superior to Kayak.

    sdf: Sorry about that – the domain name in your email address was what got me thinking that it might be some kind of elaborate pingback google juice thing which I didn’t understand :)

    Dave.

    A bit too Web2.0 but it looks nicer than the other ones. :)
