Default Cheap Flights UK to USA?

Hi,

Has any one out there been able to find any places to get cheap flights from the UK to the USA?

My wife and I are hopefully relocating to Tampa, Florida in the next month or so (providing all goes well at next weeks interview) and all the prices seem to be on the high side (>£700). The prices for a one-way ticket are about the same price also. I've tried expedia and several other sites. Does any one have any other suggestions?

Thanks

Hi! Flights are expensive this time of year for the summer (family vacations). My fiance uses www.ebookers.com and has always had pretty good luck with them.
I also use www.travelocity.com (in the USA) or www.travelocity.co.uk (in the UK) as well as expedia.
Good luck!!

hi, we have used Priceline you put the price you want to pay and if they dont accept it you just keep upping your bid till they do.
we have saved loads using them for the flights and car hire give them a shot PRICELINE.COM

Good luck

kind regards

I tried using Priceline for my UK fiance's flight, but it said that the destination
must begin in the US.

Hi there,

Hmm Florida flights should be really cheap, cos of Disney Land and all that..

Ok, I usually either book with the airline direct, which to me as always been as
cheap as booking through there websites.

I use the site address: http://www.thetravelsite.com/Dests/DGgen/AirLinks.html to
locate flight airlines.

As for tickets I always end up searching (i've never bought any ticket from here yet
though) from : http://www.travelselect.com

I hope that helps.

Gav.
