We’re back from a few day in Istanbul, Turkey. Since we organized everything in a hurry, traditional local travel agencies such as Hotelplan and Kuoni totally failed to provide us with a decent offer – both from a price and features standpoint. After some searching through my bookmarks, I stumbled upon ebookers.com. Their homepage listed prices for flying to Istanbul that were below anything I’d seen so far. We had to deal with them by phone because departure was less than 72 hours away, but the experience was great nonetheless. We picked up our tickets from their Geneva office minutes before they released a new version of their website which should include even more features – all in all highly recommended. Also useful: checkmytrip.com, which gives you direct access to your schedule if your trip was booked through AMADEUS.
