Question ebookers.ie

Can I trust them?

Planning on a trip to NYC for 3 in March.

Want to book flights and accomodation with them.

It works out cheaper when I do it altogether.

Ebookers are very well established, and can be good on flights in particular, if you are flexible on dates, but some people forget to mention that for a cheap Dublin flight to the U.S. - they have to drive to Dublin and pay high parking charges, when a more expensive flight from shannon can work out the same or cheaper and with half the driving.

Check the door to door, total travel time, as in your house to the hotel you are staying at. This can vary quite a bit. Some of the Aer Lingus Dublin->New York flights stop in Shannon to pick up, watch this.

Check also

www.skyscanner.ie for flights, as it gives more choices of flights etc.

and for hotels, try:
www.1800hotels.com
http://www.roomex.com/
These are both Irish companies, so you can check online, but ring them and try and haggle for a better deal is the best advice.

I've used them for a couple of long haul flights - no problems at all.
