Is it ok to use Vayama to book flights?

I have been shopping flights between Quito and Galapagos for a few weeks now and it seems that TAME airlines has the best prices during my times of travel, but when I ran a search through Skyscanner it came back with tickets that you could book through Vayama that were half the price of the tickets on the TAME website. Are Skyscanner and Vayama legit? How can the flights be that much cheaper than by booking directly through the airlines?

The Air Travel forum is full of tales of woe from booking with third party sites. Here's an example https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i10…

The general consensus is to purchase directly from the airline. If things go awry, they have to make it right. Booking via an OTA, the airline will direct you to deal with the OTA. And good luck with that.
