Cheap flights

I have about 6 or so days free starting this coming Sunday til Friday/Saturday. I know it is last minute, but does anyone know any sites that you can search for flight based on price and not destination? I am open to many places but want to look to see where the cheapest flights are to as my initial start to weeding out where not to go. Any ideas?

You might go to a site like:

www.travelzoo.com to see which airlines/sites are having sales this week.

I'd check Southwest and if you read all of the terms and conditions very carefully... Spirit.

Don't forget about Porter to Toronto... the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) should be on now, and a drive north to cottage country can be worthwhile.

Geo's Toronto suggestion sounds pretty good. I'd like to add a twist to that. Why not avoid all the hassels of flying. NY to Buffalo is about a 5 hour drive.

Lots to do and see on the way. Catskills, Finger Lakes, Niagara Falls, etc.

About another hour or so to Toronto for the CNE.

Thanks for the replies. Ive checked out travel zoo and can't seem to find a way to put in my location and find deals that way. any way I can do that?

Geo, unfortunately Southwest does not fly out of my couple of airports

Jim, it is not a bad idea, but Ive done the Catskills and Finger lakes before. Niagara I have not and I have not been to Toronto, so that is a possible, but I was hoping to travel a little further...although I wont rule it out. Thanks!

You can use the explore function on kayak to search flights/destinations from an airport based on price.

www.skyscanner.net

Put in where you want to depart and in the destination - put in "everywhere"

I use this all the time for quick cheap weekend getaways
