When purchasing travel services online, remember to ensure that you are dealing with a TICO-registered travel company, as these companies must adhere to the Province?s very strict consumer protection laws. Ontario?s Travel Compensation Fund reimburses consumers up to $5,000.00 per person if the travel services purchased from an Ontario registered travel agent are not provided due to the bankruptcy or insolvency of either a registered Ontario travel retailer, travel wholesaler or due to the cessation of an airline or cruise line.

Online travel agencies, such as Orbitz, Expedia, and Travelocity, can have wildly different deals. “There’s a misconception that every online travel agency [OTA] has the same fares,” says Hobica. “But because they sometimes cut special deals with the airlines, it’s worth it to check them all.” A site such as kayak.com will scan multiple agencies in one search.
Flight Denver - Chicago (DEN - ORD) $74+ Flight Dallas - Chicago (DFW - ORD) $80+ Flight Baltimore - Chicago (BWI - ORD) $81+ Flight Atlanta - Chicago (ATL - ORD) $85+ Flight Minneapolis - Chicago (MSP - ORD) $87+ Flight Boston - Chicago (BOS - ORD) $88+ Flight Houston - Chicago (HOU - ORD) $91+ Flight Fort Lauderdale - Chicago (FLL - ORD) $94+ Flight Los Angeles - Chicago (LAX - ORD) $113+
Bonus tip: If you can, avoid Sunday flights and traditional travel days. That could mean leaving before and coming back later than most people, or flying on the holiday itself. Pelletier told us you can often save 50% on a ticket by flying Christmas Eve or Day. “We saved $300 per ticket around Thanksgiving for our family of four,” she told us, “by flying out the Saturday before Thanksgiving and coming back the Saturday after. Not everyone can swing that with their work schedules, so my advice is to leave Thanksgiving day and return on Saturday for cheaper fares.”
