Last week we featured a website ( that specializes in finding fares and routes on low-fare carriers around the world. Well, might be even better as they focus strictly on Europe. I just did a test run for a trip I made a couple of summers ago from Nice to Rome. And the results are the same. You would think it would be rather inexpensive since the two cities are only 286 miles away from each other. But surprisingly, flights can be pricey if you don't know where to look. Using the big online travel web sites (Expedia, Orbitz, Kayak ... ), the only search results I got were for the major carriers like Alitalia and Air France. Can you believe that these turkeys are charging $850 USD for a one-way ticket?! I entered in an alternate return date (a week later) and the price dropped to $255USD. Not bad, but it still wasn't good enough. So I logged on to (which you'll find on, yes ... This site offers access to 75 budget airlines that serve 700 destinations in one, easy-to-use place online. I was able to save BIG TIME when I found a one-way ticket on Blu-Panorama for $78 USD. What’s great is that Wegolo is not only available in five languages and offers 12 currencies (including USD) but they apply the rules of the European Commission, by displaying the fares including all taxes and fees, unlike some low cost airlines, who deliberately hide their extra fees creating a false perception of offering cheaper fares.
