With exploretrip you have to plan your trips 30 days in advance. They also offer human travel agents although I’ve never used one of them.  This is by far the cheapest ticket I’ve ever gotten.  Thanks to exploretrip it was cheaper to fly to the other side of the world than across America.  I’ve used many different sites to go nearly around the world. You won’t get a cheaper ticket than on .
