Anyone used paylessflights.com before?

I am looking for flights to the US and found cheaper prices on that site then on kayak.com and they allow to book directly from them.

I found no comments or experiences in other websites. Did anyone try them?

Thumbs up I can vouch for Paylessflights.com(satisfied user)

I have used PaylessFlights.com a few times over the past couple of years.
Mainly because they often have the cheapest airfares especially on longhaul flights.

The Site is legit, never had any problems, they also allow you to select your seats for flights with different carriers(when I have used them).

I have found that I seem to get cheaper fares when I don't select a "preferred airline" and find the airline that I am wishing to use,(for me this has been lufthansa, in the past)

I don't know how they do it, but they are my airline search engine of choice. simple and straight forward

Smells like website promotion to me. Two first time posters posting about the same subject? Colour me skeptical though if that's the wrong assumption it's my bad. Don't mean to not extend the welcome to new members but just seemed coincidental timing IMHO.

The two posts are a month and a half apart. But I too find it odd that the second poster just happened to find FT, happened to find the Online Travel Booking forum and happened to find the thread that was a month and a half old. Great detective/search work by PassportStampJunkie for sure

It also rings a suspicious tone for me, but since the OP joined so long ago they may have been a long time lurker. I'll let it slide for now, but will be watching.

Thank you to PassportStampJunkie

I am the SEO for paylessflights.com. I just saw this talk about the site. First I want to thank PassportStampJunkie about the good words. Always makes us happy to see a satisfied customer.
We are small company fighting for online presence with the big guys.
Payless Flights offers negotiated fares that is why is cheaper than kayak - searching publish fares sites.
Most of the frequent international travelers are familiar with negotiated/ bulk/ consolidated fares.
Don't be skeptic just give it a try next time you need to fly international. You can also get service over the phone talking to an agent specializing in the country you fly to.

First of all, hi there.

I'm here because of the bad service at paylessflights.com. I tried to book a ticket from them, but the staff was unkind and rather aggresive. After several phone calls they didn't send me the ticket and i had to call them again. After all, two days lost in talks and waiting on the phone and i got my ticket from another website. I wouldn't recommend paylessflights.com.

Never seen so many first time posters in one thread. I tried their website; did not find especially good or bad prices; it seems they used ITA Matrix software.
