Okay I am trying to book a flight for a Feb. trip. I called ATA and they said I can book online without a agent fee, book over the phone for $5/ticket fee, or in person for a $10.00/ticket fee. They said if you book in person, they don't see the online rates. Now my question is if you don't book online, can you get better rates even with the agent fees? So what is the best way to get the best rates including the agent fees. What company do most of you do your business with? I am flying out of Chicago if that helps. I have always used al ocal travel agent and paid a $50.00 family fee . It would be great if I could get a better deal. Thanks!
