What is the best site for cheap airfare. I'm planning a trip to Portugal in the 1st week of October.?

Is it cheaper to fly out of Newark, NJ or JFK. Is it cheaper to fly into Porto or Lisbon. There are so many sites that I'm confused. We would really like to fly into Lisbon and out of Porto. I'm also wondering if I should just get the help of a travel agent. Please any help would be great.

    To-day EWR is best but for October is JFK.

    To-day is EWR to LISBON via Continental DIRECT.

    For October, is LFK to LISBON via Madrid with IBERIA.

    That may-be good news, as it probably allows you to stay a couple of day in Spain, on your way in or out.

    A travel agent would be very helpful. They have the connections for whole sale travel. We saved hundreds of dollars when we went to Italy by using our travel agent.

    To get an idea of prices, here is a good site for research

    I have found once I find a flight I like and all the connections, if I go to that airlines website, sometimes it's cheaper than the internet site.

    Good Luck and safe flight

    My husband booked his last trip through Yahoo Travel. He said that you get all the fares from all the other companies there. He really got a good deal. Sorry don't know anything about Portugal, but I bet Newark or JFK would be the cheapest because they have the most frequent flights.

    Good luck and have fun!
