I am planning a trip from the east cost of the US to Asia. There is a small likelihood that I will need to cancel around 2 weeks before departure. Is there anyway to purchase airline tickets which are refundable? Transferable ticket will not work since there is no way I will travel again for several years. I don't mind paying more but would not be willing to spend more than around 400-500 more than the ticket price.

In November, other people will make a decision which will determine whether they want to appear at an event. Then, I need to use a crowdfunding site to raise the money from their fans. I'm looking at a site that shows cheap rates, which I know will rise. The crowdfunding deadline will be two months after I start the campaign. Assuming this all works out, when should the 2-month crowdfunding begin? [more inside]
My wife and I will be flying with our daughter for the first time this fall, on a cross-country journey to see grandparents and relatives who haven't met her yet.

The plan is set--now I just need to buy the plane tickets, and I don't know how to go about finding the best deal. [more inside]

I want to travel with my SO to any foreign country that I haven't yet been to. Is there any website or way to search for any international destination originating from Guangzhou China and sort by price? I'd also be up for last minute deals, and a HUGE bonus would be if we could have a several day "stop over" in a transfer city. Any other tips or ideas for cheap international travel originating in China will be helpful. (We are already aware of the train to hanoi, and train to Lhasa Tibet)

People always tell me they found cheap flights by not buying direct from the airlines... however, when I search all the sites they recommend and the ones I find via google, they're always about the same price as buying direct from Air Canada. Sometimes AC is cheaper! The same thing happened last year. What am I not understanding here? [more inside]

A dear friend just died back home; I want to fly there (Seattle-Minneapolis round-trip) for the funeral, which will be sometime next week. The exact date hasn't been decided yet, however, and could take a couple of days to get settled. Right now there are some very inexpensive Seattle-Minneapolis air fares, and I don't know how long they'll last. I could just go ahead and buy a ticket for some arbitrary departure/arrival dates, and then change it if needed for a $75 change fee, gambling that in the next few days fares will go up more than $75. For those of you with more experience than I in tracking air fares--would that be a good strategy? Or should I sit tight and hope the fares will hold for a few more days?
