Other useful resources about travelling

For searching flights and hotel:

  • Expedia.ca : Good search engine for flights and hotel but not as flexible than Kayak. If you have an AirMiles account, you can get AirMiles by booking flights or hotels on Expedia. Be sure you register online on Airshopsmiles before you book.
  • Kayak.ca : Powerful search engine for flights and hotel. Be sure to check on Kayak.com before booking flights. It’s also pretty flexible using filters (airport, airlines, price, trip length).
  • CheapTickets.com : I’ve book 2 complex flights so far with them and it worked just perfectly. My experience with their customer service was also good. The agent was useful and very friendly when I had to call them. I’m not sure if they offer the service in french.
  • Priceline.com : Another search engine for flights and hotel.
  • Orbitz.com : Another search engine for flights and hotel.
