I've used Orbitz a couple of times and haven't had any Issues.

If you don't feel comfortable booking directly with Orbitz, My suggestion would be to search for the best price on Orbitz or one of the other Travel booking sites.
Then go to Web Site of the airline with the best price and book your tickets directly with the Airline. The prices as often the Same.

I have compared just as recently as today, the prices of cruises on Vacations to Go, Continental (of all things) anf the cruise line themselves and the prices are the same on all three.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

I have never booked with Orbitz but have always used a similar site Travelocity. If I find a good price, I check their website and it is always higher by a few $. Never a problem in 6 years or more.
