Looking for a good deal on a flight/car rental - anyone know some tricks to finding one?
I do not fly much so thought I would bring this question here. I am looking to travel from Southwest Florida to Chicago in September for a wedding. I need to get a flight and rent a car. There will be 2 of us traveling if that makes a difference. I have heard good things about SW Airlines lately (but thought they were bad in the past?), Jetblue and AirTran. Not sure if I would get a better deal booking farther in advance or booking as it gets closer? If I book too close that is kind of risky (being that it is for a wedding). I am looking on places like Priceline, Expedia and similar, however, you don't seem to be able to pick a specific company to fly with (unless I am missing something?). Any info of experiences with finding good deals would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance Wooters! :)
