Online transport understanding sites are most like Wikipedia — useful for a discerning overview, though maybe not so good on a details.
The large hunt sites don’t scratch information for smaller airlines and hotels. That means we aren’t removing a full design of price, report and plcae options unless we take additional stairs to find out a information.
Case in point: If we spent your transport hunt time only on a large guys (Travelocity, Expedia, Hipmunk and even my dear Kayak), you’d skip out on some of a best news to come along for vacationers in a while.
You’d skip Southwest’s entrance into a general vacation market, for one. And you’d skip a new destinations from Sun Country for two.
The Southwest news is big, and while I’ve created about it before, it’s easy to forget “this airline only got capitulation to fly here and here and there.”
But Southwest’s initial general flights are now operating, nonetheless we won’t find them but going to a website. The much-loved low-fare airline now flies a former AirTran routes to a Bahamas, Aruba and Jamaica from Atlanta, Baltimore and Orlando.
By all accounts, these routes are only a initial incursion into Southwest’s devise to contest for your general transport dollar with an contingent 96 destinations in 6 countries. That foe is expected to be good news for travelers.
Meanwhile, Sun Country has combined new destinations for this winter, including Manzanillo, Mexico; Nassau, Bahamas; and Playa Blanca, Bahamas (this stop was accessible supervision capitulation as we wrote this).
The large hunt engines are useful for removing an overview of a going rate on an atmosphere track and contrast swap dates to see if we can save income on your moody or hotel.
But before we book, demeanour a small further. You competence find we save money, transport time or both.
