    Planning a Vegas trip, just air & Hotel. Looking for the best deal. I know there are other services, and ways to get good prices.

    Let me hear them.

    I've used them all. Sometimes you can get better deals by going directly on- line to the airline, hotel, car rental company, etc. You need to compare.

    Cheaptickets.com has good deals sometimes. I remember reading the best time of the week to book tickets is Tuesday.

    Hope this helps...hornet

    Book flights early and directly with the carrier. If you do go through a discounter, be sure that the e-confirmation number is directly from the carrier. Verify it online to avoid nasty surprises at check-in.

    Book rooms directly also. I’ve witnessed a number of travelers try to check in to a hotel, only to find that the discounter’s reservation was never received. Again, if you go through a discounter, call the LOCAL hotel number and verify your reservation.

    Vegas is a destination that one can typically benefit by using one of the larger travel agencies that benefit by block and group rate discounts.

    Good luck.

    go to Farecast.com. It will check all of them at the same time. It will also give you a prediction of whether you should wait to buy or buy now because of trends.
