Savvy flyers have long been skimming through online travel agents', like Travelocity's and Expedia's, massive databases of airfares to pinpoint the lowest rates – only to skip off to the airlines' own websites to do their actual booking (to curtail the third-party booking fees). Happily, Travelocity recently announced they would bid adieu to their fees (ranging from $7 to $12) on all domestic and international flights, in response to Expedia's move in the same direction last month. While both sites claim their fees will only be waived until May 31, we have an inkling that the policy may be here to stay — particularly if the last major online booking site holdout, Orbitz, caves in the coming weeks.
