Q. I've been shopping around for fares to Manila and Hong Kong, and have found AsianAirfares.com to be less expensive than Travelocity and Expedia. So far, the reviews of AsianAirfares from other users are good, but what do you think? Is this site legit and am I safe booking tickets through them?

A. They are legit. But here's the thing: They sell consolidator fares, which are far more restrictive regarding changes and refunds (sometimes even not allowing them at all), so make sure you know what you're purchasing. As always, use a credit card in case you need to dispute charges down the road.
