Low International airfares, inexpensive plane tickets, cheap rates for car rentals, and inexpensive air travel links are here.  The sites below are where I find the most deals for study abroaders and exchange students.  They are the cheap airfares which can often be found on these travel web sites.  Definitely comparison shop!  Different sites have different prices for airfare at different times of the year and during special promotions.  In short, no one site is ever your best bet for finding the best travel deal.  Try a few and find the one with the best priced airfare for your study abroad/exchange country.
