When you're travelling by air, how do you book your travel to get the best deals? Which websites do you use online? Or do you prefer and trust the face to face interaction with a travel agent?

I use on-line booking.
Unless it was for overseas, that's a face to face booking then.
I don't have any one company, I just look
for the right deal....for the right day and time.
It has always worked out fine.
As a student I go to Student Flights or STA Travel to get airfares I can afford.
I subscribe to e-mails from Qantas to receive alerts for cheap flights. To save money on a forthcoming trip, I cleaned out my entire Frequent Flyer accounts points balance.
I go online. The airfares vary a lot, so there is always some better deal. There are some last minutes tickets which can be cheaper, too.
My dad and his friend usually book package deal holidays where everything is inclusive.
I usually do research online then go to Flight Centre as they match any deal you find.
I go online to find the best deals. It's amazing how widely airfares can vary.
Comparison websites like webjet.com.au to find the best flight deals
We are 5, so tend to only book flights on sale, and build the holiday after that. Recently, we got 5 return tickets to Singapore for $1500 (total) on Scoot, but as we'd recently been to Singapore, only had 3 days there and the rest of the time was in Malaysia (Tioman and LEGOLAND). We've done the same again, and while we only have the flights to Singapore, the plan is to go to Vietnam.
Book QANTAS, through agent.

If buying a tour, that can be done at same time.
My husband uses his 'staff travel', online. because as he was with the flight company for 33 years, he gets the discounts for 33 years, from the date he took his redundancy!, but he reckons he's be dead before the time is up! I could use his discount for another 5 years, but I'm sure I won't feel like flying in my 90's, by then. Also i have no idea how he makes the bookings on line anyway.
