I came across a relatively new travel website this week. It's called Vayama and it's targeted for international travelers. It seems to have some pretty good deals. We just booked a trip to Europe for early June and saved about 20% off of the prices we were seeing on other air travel websites. The interface could be better, but it's very web 2.0. They have a 3D seat selector that nearly brought my relatively powerful laptop to its knees, but it looks very cool. My other gripe is that, at least for our trip, there was about a 24 hour delay between clicking 'buy' and the itinerary getting ticketed. If you're planning some overseas travel and you don't mind playing the waiting game for a little while after selecting your trip, Vayama might be worth a look.

I had a rocky experience booking with Vayama. I actually use - pretty similar in terms of pricing, but the customer service is a million times better.

Have you priced out a ticket from the Falkland Islands to Papua New Guinea yet?

dhodge said... looks good, though it doesn't seem to have as wide of a selection as Vayama. Customer service is always nice, however.

As far as the ever popular Mount Pleasant to Port Moresby route is concerned, neither site offers any flights between these two cities.
