Our plane tickets to the Philippines now booked!

After a few weeks of searching for the best travel deals online, we got a very good one at Expedia. I'd be flying ahead of Jeff because I'm gonna take care of the final details of our wedding. My flight schedule is in November while Jeff's is going to be on the 3rd week of December. We decided to book our flights as early as now, so as to avail the different promo deals that travel websites are offering. Rose, of Texas Life, was the one who actually suggested to me a couple of websites to check out. I've looked into Travelocity, CheapTickets and Expedia. I've heard horrible reviews about CheapTickets so I concentrated my comparison between Travelocity and Expedia. The latter is slightly cheaper than the former, though both sites are very reliable and safe when it comes to booking online. I'm quite happy with our purchase. We expected to spend $2,000-2,500/each, considering the time of the year that we would be flying. Thankfully, I only paid $1,239.70 for my ticket, while Jeff's ticket costs $1,520. Then, an additional $60.00/each for our roundtrip flight from Manila to Cebu. Not bad, huh! I think it's cheaper when you book your flights 6-8 months before your departure day. Jeff had been to Cebu twice to visit me but never did he get this good of a deal online. He's pretty much happy with our purchase too! Yohoooo!!! Philippines, here we come!!!

I just went to L.A. and bought my tickets at CheapTickets. So far, they are doing a good job. They gave me tips, and more info for travel and have responded to my questions promptly and courteously. I wonder why there are horrible reviews. I got a RT ticket from JFK to LAX for less than $250.00 including tax and VAT. I had a nice trip in L.A. You can see my photos at my post.
