While reading Seasons Greetings, travel saving tips by Michelle Higgins (NY Times, October 26), I noticed the mention of Farecompare. As I am still hunting for that elusive deal on a round trip ticket to France to visit my mother and my growing by the day grandson, I thought I would give them a test drive.
I like the 11 month forecast and the clear calendar that shows you that if you book a flight on Sunday through Thursday more than 2 weeks in advance that's when you get the best deal.
I also cannot complain that for each flight offered it states clearly which airline you will fly and what the real price is and what the breakdown is between basic fare, surcharges and taxes.
I just wish they did not have all these pop up windows opening.
