Who Has the Best Airfare Rates?

How do we know who is telling the truth when it comes to the statement "we have the best rates for airfare" Can everyone be the cheapest? Certainly not. I think the public in general is growing tired of false or misleading advertising. Why don't the air travel search engines position themselves differently? They may say..."we have the best service, we specialize in 5 star hotels or we deal with hotels within a specific area." I think the general public is tired of the deceitful statements we see with internet advertising and their catch phrases.
I recently did a test to see who was the cheapest in airlines and hotels. Although the science of my test may not deliver conclusive results I do believe it gives some interesting information. My first test was for hotel rooms and I used a search engine called Hotels Combined. In this test we can see that no single search engine is the cheapest for every hotel.

Hotels Combined does a free search in any city you like...here is the difference. They search all of the major search engines and then show which search engine is the cheapest. They then give you an option to book with the cheapest search engine provider or direct with the hotel itself. The nice part about this company is that they are not trying to sell anything.

When it comes to airfares we searched through Buffalo Cheap flights.com. This is a website that searches for the best rates for flights in and out of Buffalo, New York. They use Cheapoair, Travelocity and Priceline.com. Consistently Cheapoair had the best rates and it was only because of their instant $10 off coupon. I suggest that you try these to companies if you need airfare or hotel rooms.
I think it is time that the truth is revealed about the search engines and the best way to do this is to search as many as possible before making any purchases to make sure you are happy with the search engine and their prices.
