I’ve written that ITA Matrix is a powerful airfare search tool with many built-in options not available elsewhere. It’s simple to perform basic searches, and you can filter results by airline, departure and arrival times, flight duration, number of stops, and more.
But there’s a big limitation – you can NOT book a ticket on ITA Matrix. Once you find a fare, you must purchase your flight directly through the airline or with an online travel agency.
Now, there’s a way to quickly book ITA Matrix itineraries without hunting for the fare elsewhere. BookWithMatrix finds the fare for you! All you do is copy and paste the itinerary from the ITA Matrix search.

Million Mile Secrets reader Umair tweeted:
Are there any issues with booking with an Online Travel Agency (OTA) versus directly with airlines?
Great question, Umair!
There are pros and cons to booking with an Online Travel Agency (OTA), like Orbitz, Expedia, or Priceline. But in many cases, you’ll earn more miles & points booking with an online travel agency than you would directly with the airline.
Booking Airline Tickets Through an Online Travel Agency Is Sometimes a Better Deal Than Buying Tickets Through the Airline Directly
I’ll explain when you should (or should NOT) book your tickets through an online travel agency!

In our interview series, we always ask, “What do you now know about collecting miles and points which you wish you knew when you started out?”
The most common answer interviewees give is that they wish they would have started sooner. Even if you’re unsure of your travel goals, starting to earn transferable points now will give you lots of options for your future trip plans.
