Our Editor’s Review:
We put Economy Travel to the test and compared their flight prices with those found on our current favorite international flight search engine: Vayama.com. Vayama is also a flight consolidator & they sell airfare from 100′s of different airlines and sources. We typically find the lowest international fares on Vayama’s site. When comparing Vayama to Economy Travel, it is important to remember that Vayama’s search engine does not automatically add the taxes & fees (we added them to the prices above). On Vayama, you must click on the lowest rate for the taxes to be calculated and added to the fare, which is a bit time consuming. All fares listed on Economy Travel’s search automatically add the taxes to the first result. This makes Economy Travel quicker and easier. Overall, we think that Economy Travel’s search engine is quicker than Vayama, but Vayama usually came up with cheaper fares by a hair. We recommend that you compare international flights on both sites prior to booking your flight to ensure you are getting the best price, because it is a bit of a toss-up. You may appreciate a shorter itinerary, which you can find by comparing on both sites.
The Economy Travel fares are typically a few bucks more than other sites, and we think that must be due to higher fees, as the airlines are the same. Although, it is still worth a look before you book. Both Vayama and Economy Travel are the best sites for international airfares that we have found, but Economy Travel was not quite good enough to beat Vayama in our book.
