SkyScanner

Skyscanner is a meta search engine that searches the websites of the low-cost airlines and collates the results in useful ways. It's a great example of how data can be harvested from multiple sources on the web, combined and presented to the user in simple but useful fashion. For example, you can look at a specific route such as "Cardiff to Paris" and see how the cost of the cheapest tickets varies over the a given month. Or you can choose a specific date or weekend and look at where you could go on that date. They also provide links to allow you to recheck the prices and book tickets.
