I feel stupid asking but I haven't made airline reservations since I was in college 20+ years ago. My ex always used to make travel arrangements.

Anyway my son and I want to go visit my Mom in Florida and I don't even know where to begin.

Wow I feel useless

Try kayak.com ... They'll compare prices and flights for different airlines for you.

I usually start with Travelocity.com then compare to the airline's website for the lowest option or two. I also check southwest's prices separately.

If it is overwhelming, use a travel agent. They can help with all of your arrangements, and they are paid by the airline/hotel/etc.

I start at Expedia to get an idea of what airlines would be the best choice for the city I'm going with, then always book through the airlines website.

I prefer one of 2 different airlines, so stick with them for points and such.
