How much can you save by booking directly on Air Canada's site compared to, say, Orbitz? A lot. We checked Washington to Toronto leaving Feb 9 and returning Feb 16, to cite one example, nonstop on Air Canada using Orbitz. Total fare with taxes and fees: $489 RT(US).
On Aircanada.com? $262.72 RT (US).
New York to Toronto same dates: $271 on AC vs. $483 on Travelocity (see, were not picking on Orbitz, it's just that airlines are increasingly selling their best deals on their own sites).
That's mind boggling. Airlines big and small continue to make an end run around online travel agencies, and these fares will not be listed on other fare comparison or fare forecasting or fare alert sites.
Here are today's AC WebSavers which must be booked by today for travel through February 29.
