faregeek.com is a pretty good site for cheap flights, I just booked a return flight from Toronto to Amsterdam for $1000 CAD compared to 1500 I saw on every other website...The balkan countries are fairly cheap as well, aside from Croatia which has become a bit of a tourist hub, I'm Serbian and go back there often for a cheap vacation, it has yet to become a tourist destination and theyre not on the euro so Western currency goes a long way, although it may have a bad rep on CNN its a beautiful place with plenty of culture and some of the happiest people you will meet

If it sounds too good to be true, it generally is. If you google for "faregeek scam", you will find dozens of horror stories. If those are accurate, your flight will be cancelled in the next day for some obscure reason, and "customer service" will then find you a new flight for the same price (or really a bit more) than on all other sites.
Please let us know if the same happens with you.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for pointing this out to me, I wont lie when I saw what you wrote my heart stopped...I quickly called the airline and they told me that my flight was confirmed and my ticket had been issued. I didnt even realize that I had already received my e-ticket, I thought it was only the trip itinerary. I called faregeek as well and got them to confirm my reservation and ticket and re-send me a copy of the ticket and within 3 minutes I had another copy. I read some reviews and it they seem to be a hit or miss, a lot of people said that there customer service is terrible, in my situation I didnt wait on hold at all the gentlemen I spoke to was super nice and I recieved a second copy of e-ticket as well as the e-ticket receipt in less than 5 minutes. Maybe I just lucked out, or maybe something can still go wrong (fingers crossed it doesnt) I will keep you guys posted on my experiences with them but so far so good
