    I'm booking flights to the US, and just wanted to know what websites were the most reliable. I've seen reviews of quite a couple sites, and most of them were negative. Has anyone booked a flight with either of the following, if so how was your experience? and did things go smoothly?

    ebookers
    travelpack
    budgetair
    lastminute
    holidaygenie
    travelup

    If anyone has any recommendations of sites that would also be helpful!

    Thanks in advance

    All good travel sites. I like STA as they show you the cheapest flight in the month around the date you select if you are flexible.
    Expedia often has really good specials on.

    Can't go wrong with these big companies really.

    I tend to search for flights with Skyscanner, and then book through the airline's own website - just so I get an actual breakdown of all costs/taxes/fees/charges/etc.

    Ebookers always worked for me but probably they're all similar. What sort of problems are you hearing about?

    That ebookers is a scam sites. Apparently some people hadn't received booking confirmation after they had booked online, and that when they called up, ebookers were claiming they hadn't received their payment.

    They're more positive reviews than negative for ebookers though so it may be an option. Thanks!
