You'll get basically the same price options no matter where you go, but I usually use Expedia. Other sites may apear to have lower prices, but they don't show you the total with all taxes and fees included, whereas Expedia does. In the end, you'll spend about the same wherever you go, since every site has access to the same flights.

Try Expedia, Flightcenter or Hotwire. Before paying, I suggest you check the airline directly. I remember once where I got the flight cheaper when I booked directly.

I wouldn't touch Expedia with a ten-foot pole. If you have the option to fly out of SeaTac, your best bet would be priceline.com or hotwire.

Good luck.

Does Kayak work with Canadian fares? If so you should use it

cheaptickets always a sure bet for me.

Like above poster said, if you are looking to save, take a bus to seatac. Much cheaper than flying from Canada

If the way Torts stepped up doesn't inspire anyone to work harder, I'll drive them to the airport myself.

Based on what? I travel a bunch, usually 3-4 decent trips a year, and I research a lot before I book. I have found expedia is right on par with EVERY other website, out of SeaTac or YVR. And their customer service is great if anything goes wrong.

You probably don't even need to go all the way to Seatac. Last year, I went to LA from Bellingham, with a stop in Seattle. I checked the difference if I left from Seatac and it was only a $25.

Watch for the WestJet seat sales, I took my wife and daughter to Hawaii and it was super cheap.

For the 3 of us:

Originally out of YVR = $3600 return
From Seattle = $2500 return
WestJet seat sale = $2400 total (This was out of YVR and includes the $$ i spent for Hawaiin airlines from honalulu to maui).

If you can, book 1 way flights and try to fly mid week. Weekend fairs and round trip are WAY more expensive, as they get you on the way back in cost.

Basically I got 3 extra flights, got to fly out of YVR and got to book my ideal dates and times by:
* Booking 1 way only and picking the dates (for example booking 1 way back on Saturday was $400 more per person that Thursday)
* Bought during the seat sale

Additionally, since we were going from Vancouver -> Honolulu -> Maui -> Vancouver it was MUCH easier to book 1 way flights based on the schedule adn times that I wanted.

I always use kayak.com if I'm looking to compare prices.

Pretty much gives you the prices from everywhere.

The best deals I've ever recieved have been directly on the airline websites. Kayak is also great because it searches multiple sources for you. The cheapest price I got on the last couple flights I've taken I booked on flight network.
