Cheapest Fare to Anywhere--FareCompare with Google Maps

With this week's winter weather came news about FareCompare has integrated Google Maps with airline fares to provide both comparison charts and a map pinpointing the cheapest flights from New York (or other departure city) to anywhere but here. Starting from the home page, select a city for your departure and destination to bring up a comparison chart of fares across airlines. Then select “My Airport Map” (left frame) to view a Google map with cheapest fares marked for cities across the country, including the highlighted cheapest-of-all destination. Thanks to Google Maps functionality, you can even zoom in to focus on a particular region, such as southern Florida. Or start your search from the “My Airport Map” page by entering another departure city. Wherever you start and end your search, FareCompare provides a visually integrated view of flight costs for planning your next getaway.
