<p>Can you recommend a travel agent to help us get a good consolidator fare from US to Paris? </p> <p>We're looking for someone you have had personal experience with. </p>

I used Flight Coordinators (Southern California) in the past with 100% good success, though they stopped being as competitive once people could start booking on line. I now find my best deals come directly from the airlines themselves. Otherwise I keep scanning Orbitz, Cheaptickets, Expedia and Travelocity until something seems good enough to grab and go. Duration of total flight and numbers of stop overs now trump lowest price for me now.

I have never used Flight Coordinators but have had success with Orbitz. I agree with TravelCenturian. Sometimes booking directly with the airline is just as competitive, if not more so, than a consolidator. It is all a matter of searching, comparing and timing. I usually start with kayak.com to compare results.
