Anyone ever use Cheapoair.com
      #1737873 - 07/07/17 12:10 PM (24.127.128.120)

I just found a fare that is half the price of what I've seen in the last couple of weeks. We normally are more comfortable purchasing direct from the airline, but the savings is tempting.

Maybe I'm wrong. Isn't true that when you purchase direct from the airline, you have more recourse should an issue arise re double booking and etc.?

Is that one of those sites where you don't know what airline until after you pay?

Not sure if this is still the case but fare consolidators have a lot of 'small print' and you have to comply with it every inch of the way to reach any satisfaction with them should there be a problem.

I'm sure they must be a legit company but the problem is, you never know what will happen until a problem arises, and then it might be too late.

Personally speaking, I wouldn't purchase anywhere but from the airline itself regardless of how good a deal sounds, but that's just my take.

Exactly...I use Google Flights to see prices and then go to the airline to book

Just checked a January Sunday R/T BOS-SXM and it's only $457 R/T and both flights are n/s (JB)

No. It shows all the airline info.

This is a good idea. I'm just more comfortable going directly to the airline.

Thanks.

OK, I don't understand how it can be half the price then. Never looked at it myself.
