hv u tried searching for an online fare? find that it's usually cheaper than going thru any travel agent even at so-called 'corporate rates'.

Also a rather short notice - during Christmas season air tickets are booked solid. I usually check with Zuji, Airfares.com.sg, and cross-check with the airlines' own booking sites to look for the cheapest ticket. You won't get a bargain, but if you really need to go, try these.

Errr...it's already December and you want to book tickets now!

Good luck getting economy class seats...my flight yesterday, biz class was full!

So looks like you might have to hunt for cheap first class tickets!

Protip: if you want cheap tickets during the December season, book it in February!

Planning to go New York in Oct.

1) Where to find cheapest air tickets?

2) What to see in New York?

Will be staying at a friend's place for 5 days, at suburbs, 40min fast train from NYC. Friend will bring us around her town and recommends us to drive up to Niagara Falls. So need rental car recommendations too.

3) Where to rent a Ford F150?

1. Zuji, Tripadvisor, Skyscanner, all the usual aggregators.

2. Plenty. Statue of Liberty. Museum of Natural History. 9-11 memorial. Empire State Building.

3. Rent an F150 if you must, but you don’t want to handle that in NYC itself. Try Budget.

A fast check at SQ web site. I think is reasonable for a more than 20hr flight. I will not want to take those American airline flight.

Empire State Building, 9-11 memorial, Statue of Liberty, Times Square.

If going to Niagara Falls, go over to the Canada side. It’s much nicer. US side is boring but there’s a factory outlet at Buffalo.

Can drive over by Rainbow bridge.

I would rent a convertible in Oct where it’s Fall, weather damn shiok to drive top down.

The Statue of Liberty is on an island so must book with tour agent to visit?
