Thread Details

Many threads have been started requesting help in finding travel deals. Here are some locations that should be checked first before posting requests for additional assistance.

These are price comparison sites for airfare, hotels, cars and general travel deals:
www.airfarewatchdog.com
www.bookingbuddy.com
www.expedia.com
www.farecompare.com
www.flightorder.com
www.iexplore.com
www.kayak.com
http://us.lastminute.com/ - last minute travel deals
www.lonelyplanet.com
www.mobissimo.com
www.orbitz.com
http://www.pricegrabber.com/home_...romo_id=63
www.sidestep.com
www.studentuniverse.com - fantastic student prices (especially airline)
www.travelocity.com
www.travelzoo.com
www.qixo.com
farechase.yahoo.com

This website will give you reviews of hotels, resorts and vacations from people who have stayed there:
www.tripadvisor.com

If you want to try your hand at bidding for travel or lodging, try these out:
www.hotwire.com – price provided, no names (lodging or carrier)
www.priceline.com – tells you the lodging place or carrier, but not the price

Now, wouldn’t you like a cheat sheet for hotwire or priceline? Secret Why not check these great sites out to help you?
www.betterbidding.com
www.biddingfortravel.com
www.bidlesstravel.com

If Southwest Airlines flies to/from where you want to go, try installing their notification software that provides great prices – it has no spyware and works great. While you’re there, check out their hot fares.

www.southwest.com/hotfares

Here is a guide to getting a better price on car rentals:

If you want to talk travel points, miles and more, you must check out the forums at:
http://www.flyertalk.com/

If you want to pick your trip by quality (speed, comfort, ease) check out:
http://www.insidetrip.com/

Here are some new sites that use predictive technology to figure out how much the fare will go up or down. It is limited in its cities right now, but should be expanding in the near future.

If you are ever going on a humanitarian or mission trip (working with some kind of a non-profit), don't book your airfare until you've checked a specialty site first like www.missiontravel.org first. They are have contracts with airlines for (oftentimes significantly) lower fares if it qualifies as a humanitarian flight. They can also book air originating from any country, not just the US.

Try and check travel sites early Tuesday mornings at like 6am. My friend told me that's when airlines release their flights. It has worked for me in the past. Flights absolutely go up closer to the holidays. You will find no more expensive tickets than closer to Christmas and Thanksgiving. I would try and book my flight as far in advance as possible.
I need a holiday flight special C'mon Christmas gift for me!

Thx ill try. I am a first time train/bus rider. Any travel deals right now or amtrack codes?

Plane: Should I just hope for a standby flight? But for now flights are, 800+

Train: How much is it usually? I'm thinking of doing amtrack. Ticket to florida christmas break is too expenisive, after christmas is cheaper. $231.00 --

I need to see my family and I need to be back in time to study/work again.

Would it be worth it for me to travel by plane, train or bus-- or rent a vehicle to travel from NY to FL over Christmas break. Everything is $600 and ^
