The Airlines We know you know the Internet, but you may not realize that different airlines update their e-fares regularly. The blizzard's about to hit Colorado? Click onto united.com—Denver's the airline's hub—late Tuesday night to score one of its on-sale seats. Continental.com and frontierairlines.com post e-fares late-Tuesday evening. Delta.com's updates arrive on Wednesday.
The Travel Sites The big three online discount-travel sites—expedia.com, orbitz.com, and travelocity.com—still reliably serve up cheap flights and travel specials, but new meta-sites like site59.com and sidestep.com are worth exploring. Sidestep searches multiple travel sites in one fell swoop. If you're in New York, your buddy's in California, and you want to meet in Aspen, site59's nifty search engine lets you quickly find fares to accommodate you both.
