Plotting an escape from San Jose!!  
What travel websites do you usually use to book flights? It's been a couple of years since I flew out-of-state, and I can't remember what site I used last time. I've checked the flight prices at Priceline.com, Hotwire.com, and Expedia.com. Am I forgetting someone important? Are there horror stories about these sites that I need to know?

Some other sites I use as reference are:
Travelocity
Orbitz


More often then not though I do it for hotels =\ to compare all the prices...
then I actually call the hotel themselves directly to see if I am really getting a discount (otherwise I just book through them...if I need to cancel, I won't get a cancellation fee -from- these websites)

Wonder if you could do the same with flight tickets...probably can.

As for horrors....not really...
Expedia I know I had to cancel once (for hotel) and got docked a fee (see above workaround).
Travelocity had a weird issue where (again hotel) said it was available but when I got to checkout, it was "gone". I say bad design site or *cough* bait-and-switch because it still kept showing up available until the end and you have to choose another available but more expensive one.

I left a comment on your fb. Didn't realize you had it here on LJ too

My past four flights I've gotten the best deals at Travelocity. I usually always check on Kayak.com, Cheapflights.com and Bookingbuddy.com but they're all pretty similar.

Where you going to?! I MIGHT (big might) be helping a friend drive to San Jose in September! I'll keep you posted b/c we'll definitely meet up if it happens!! ;0)
