Here's a tool to help find the cheapest flights

The ITA Matrix is a great and free tool to help you find the cheapest flights. 

Here’s what it can do:
- search flexible dates
- almost all airlines in the world (but not most discount airlines – for these use
- can search only specific airlines due its advanced routing language
- search nearby airports 

Here’s an on-line tutorial on how to use the matrix.

Once you’ve determined your flights contact your travel agent or originating carrier for reservations and ticketing.
