    Hey guys,

    I have a question about ITA Matrix (https://matrix.itasoftware.com/)
    I usually use the website in order to fare rules, I found a pretty good deal on a flight for New Year´s but I´m not able to find a website that routes the fare as ITA does, not even the airline.
    Does the fare really exist? If so, why is impossible to book it?


    Cheers

    Where are you located (or making the booking from)? Some ITA fares show up on line but are restricted in being booked to certain countries.
    For example I found a cheap fare NAP/PMO on Alitalia but I couldn't book it on their US site ..the price being showed there was more than double.
    Had a friend book it in Spain.:)

    It is also possible that ITA has cached inventory and that the fare isn't actually available. You can try forcing the routing via hipmunk but that doesn't always work either.

    If you're willing to share details maybe someone can offer up more specific recommendations.

    As Seth says, Hipmunk is a great resource for things like this. I use Kayak for complicated ITA itineraries as well.
