Advantages Flexible, easy to use, plenty of info
Disadvantages Not always the cheapest option, Shania Twain
If you want get information or book a flight fast and with the minimum of hassle, this is the best site I've found so far. I've been using Expedia for quite some time for information purposes, but it's only recently that I actually took the plunge and ordered something from it.
In this way it is a very flexible. I've used Expedia to find flight information like this on a number of occasions and I've always found the site to be stable and reliable (no drop outs or crashes), and invariably I've come out with some useful info.
The interface allows you go back to the search engine, enabling you to refine and/or change your criteria. For example if, like me, you search for the cheapest option, you may wish to select a different airport to start from. Expedia enables you to go backwards and forwards like this changing and experimenting with alternative itineraries until you find the one that best matches your start criteria.
POINTS TO CONSIDER
You'll seldom find the guaranteed cheapest possible flight here (for example the database does NOT incorporate budget airlines like EasyJet or Buzz), the flights that you will find though are AMONG the cheapest. Plus there are plenty of special offers available from the airlines that are represented, and if you are looking for budget tickets, your needs are catered for. Looking at the spread of airlines represented, I don't think one specific group is favoured, for example you'll see BA flights catered for alongside Lufthansa, and I know for a fact that they belong to different airline groups (sorry, can't remember the names of each group).
The site is fast, flexible and has an extensive database. You will be able to get a flight from most UK airports to most destinations you are likely to want to go to. If you're looking for budget tickets, the prices you get are *among* the cheapest, but not necessarily THE chepaest you can find.
