You might want to give http://www.cheap-flights-finder.com a go The site compares multiple flight aggregators with 1 search including Dohop, Skyscanner, Mobissimo, Kayak and Kelkoo. It is essential to compare multiple flight comparison sites as each one tends to produce different results. http://www.cheap-flights-finder.com is the fastest way, I have found, to compare results from multiple flight comparison sites.

Ok well I'm trying to book a rtn flight for early August (flex dates) from London to Vancouver. I know most of these search engines are European budget airline focussed, but doesn't hurt to try them out on a transatlantic route. Overall, the best site was Skyscanner. It gave me the best price of £580. Momodo was second with £682. The reason these two came top for me was the flexible date search and graphical bar chart which made it very clear when the cheapest flights were. Judging from the price discrepency, Skyscanner search more flights than Momodo for this route. Dohop and Onindo were a little disappointing. I couldn't find the flexible date search and didn't have time to enter all my possibilities! Maybe I missed it though. Ferrisflight.com was still a little buggy and crashed when I did my flexible search. Can't say either way on that one. Overall though, I found the best price of £490 (flyglobespan.com) by doing my own searching. I only had to look through 4 or 5 airlines to find this, so although it took a little longer it wasn't that bad and it saved me £90. Bottom line - if you want to use one of these I'd recommend skyscanner. However, that's only going on my experince of this one route. Furthermore, the fact I was able to find a better price suggests the search engines need to become more comprehensive (despite claims they search through hundreds of providers). My recommendation is to supplement the results these sites provide with some searching of your own, time allowing.

There was a recent update which caused a problem in Firefox and Opera. This has now been fixed. I guess in saying this I am also declaring my association with the website. :)

Just had a look at FerrisFlights and it only seems to work in Internet Explorer. Firefox and Opera do not display the results.

The ultimate website for return flights that include budget and traditional airlines is www.FerrisFlights.com It searches the major agencies / airlines but importantly it allows you to search with flexible dates.

Check also the site www.onindo.com – a provider of travel search technology with API options for web-sites.

I think there are some great tools on their way in this field.
Have a look at www.skyscanner.net and www.momondo.com for similar low cost searches.
Momondo does not have a lot of fancy functions - but seems to seach the lowest fares between european cities
