Click here to see the Times Online selection of the top 100 travel websites. Don't agree with our choices? Know of one that merits inclusion? Let us know GET A GOOD DEAL Kayak searches will find airfares between any airport pair, as well as finding flights for multi-city trips. We love the clean site and lack of ads; the fact that you can search for flights from multiple departure and arrival airports; the Fare Buzz tool, which allows you to search for flights when you don’t have a specific place in mind and want to be inspired; the fact that prices includes taxes and fees; the slider tool that allows you to change flight times; the fare history graph. One of the original flight comparison and holiday offer sites, Cheapflights searches a number of different airline and travel agency websites. It also has a useful news section listing new routes and seat sales, plus there's some handy travel tips, from ski airport listings to luggage allowances by airlines. Searches hundreds of budget, scheduled and charter airlines for the best deals and times to travel on any route. The design is simple and the search is fast. The month-wide date search will generate a graph showing when flights are cheapest - handy if your departure dates are flexible. Only searches flights to and from the UK but has a good deals database and offers options like roundthe-world routings and a multiple airport of origin option. Now part-owned by Cheapflights, but still operating independently from its parent, this brilliantly quick flight comparison site includes major airlines, their prices and destinations around the world, and unlike Cheapflights, you can start your journey outside the British Isles. A favourite of Sunday Times travel expert, Richard Green, this flights site offers one of the most comprehensive searches as well as options like Open Jaw tickets and stopovers. Great if you're flexible on dates or destinations and have a fixed budget. This site searches budget
