|Lets see what’cha got, world!|
Booking a vacation these days can seem more like a hassle than ever before. Even with the Internet, it can prove difficult, trying to find the best deals or simply an airline that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg to check a bag.
It doesn’t have to be all headaches though, with the introduction of a few websites that manage to cover all the basics from car rental to hotel reservations to special amenities, while getting you the best deal around. These multi-tasking lifesavers are the mvp’s of travel booking.
•Autoslash.com is a car rental service for both domestic and foreign trips. What really sets this site apart from the norm is how it tracks your reservation right up until your pick up date, applying greater and deeper discounts as it finds them so you’re literally getting the best price available. No longer do you have to spend hours scouring the Internet for hours to save $5…it does it for you!
•Bing.com/travel It can be very frustrating trying to find the exact moment in which to book your flight or hotel room. One day you book it and the next its suddenly half price. How does this happen?! Bing takes the guesswork out of the equation by analyzing price trends and historical fare data to let you know exactly when the best time to book is.
•Jetsetter.com and Tripalertz.com After signing up for free (all you really have to do is enter your email), you will be provided with various vacation packages, taking you to destinations you could only dream of. Tripalertz even has a deal (as wild as it may seem) to outer space! Talk about out of this world deals! (I just had to…)
•Kayak.com Is a great site to compare numerous airline sites and their fares all once. Instead of going back and forth between sites, Kayak allows you to view the deals being offered at a glance in one screen.
•Fuelcostcalculator.com For those of you road tripping this summer, this website can be an enormous help. It lets you plan out how much gas is going to cost you along the way, being impressively accurate by using information of the exact model/style of your car.
• Other sites like wififreespot.com finds everything from hotels, airports and chain companies (Starbucks, Panera Bread, etc) with complimentary internet access. Priceline.com/freebies lets you know about free amenities such as breakfast, parking or other special services by hotels in the area you are looking to stay.
