Airfare

Kayak

A good flight search engine for fares leaving from the United States. They search a wide variety of airline and other flight brokers (Kayak is what is known as a meta search engine). I think they are a great starting point for searching for cheap airline tickets.

 

Vayama

Another good flight search engine, especially for international flights outside the US. It's one of my main starting points for international tickets.

 

Skyscanner

An amazing resource for checking airfares internationally and includes a great list of budget airlines that a lot of other search engines don't.

 

Momondo

Never book a flight without checking them.

 

Airfarewatchdog

This website monitors airline ticket prices and will alert you when deals occur. They find a lot of unadvertised fares and I highly recommend signing up for their newsletter. This is one of the best websites on the Internet to find airfare.

 

Travel Hacking Cartel

One of the best resources for finding specials and bonuses for frequent flyer and hotel loyalty programs. Best for US based travelers.

Train

Rail Europe

If you are going to visit Europe and do a lot of long train trips, get a rail pass. You will save money. I've used a rail pass twice and saved hundreds of dollars each time. The math just works out for long train trips. You can read about experience saving money with them.
