Planning to book my flight thru Kayak for Italy trip next month. Would prefer a direct booking thru airline I'll use , but their flights costs are a lot higher. How reliable is booking thru Kayak? Have any fellow travelers had last minute problems with their flights thru Kayak? Kayak's own Trip Protection fee they recommend sound's a bit bogus. I will be carrying travel insurance besides. Thank you for your replies.
