Default Plane Tickets

Where do you get cheap plane tickets? I want to fly to Houston Texas to see my family (my uncle just died and my cousins are a wreck). But I can't find tickets cheaper than $282 (orbitz). Anyone know of a good place to find cheaper tickets? Or a promo code for a discount?

$282 is a pretty cheap flight, I'm assuming that's round-trip? I almost always find cheaper flights through the airlines actual site, rather than websites like Expedia, Travelocity, orbbitz, etc.

Oh, and you'll find cheaper tickets the more flexible your travel dates and times are, flying red-eye, and (usually) booking last-minute

Go directly to Southwest.com and see what they have offered.

Plane tickets aren't cheap, $282 sounds really reasonable to me. If I want to fly to Toronto (about 450km away) it's usually around that price round-trip.

Last time I checked I could get tickets to Chicago for like $80-$90 so I guess that's just kind of what I was expecting (I actually figured maybe $150). I just don't have 300 bucks right now and was hoping for something cheaper.

Thanks though!! I will do some research on the red-eye and last minute thing. Cause I don't really care when I leave or get there.

ETA: also, everything else besides orbitz that I looked at was closer to $400, including southwest's site

If it was $80-90, I'm sure that was without taxes. Which would still bring the tickets to nearly $200.

I use Expedia. That sounds very reasonable for round trip to me!
