Vegas, Baby

Going to Vegas at the end of July with my girlfriend for 2 nights/3 days. I did a little shopping around at lunch today before buying, and it turned out to be a pretty interesting object lesson, in, well, shopping around. Here’s pricing on Travelocity, Expedia, and buying directly from the vendors (exact same flights and hotel):

Travelocity: $664.69

Expedia: $727.72

Alaska Airlines: $447.96
Paris Las Vegas: $237.62
Transfers: $20.00
Total "Direct": $705.58

Interesting. $60 difference between two different services, and the cheapest service is $40 cheaper than bypassing the “middle man”.
