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.travelocity.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.

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.

Right now, cruising is REALLY, REALLY cheap. Airfare to get there may not be, but to spend $550 for a 7 day cruise is incredibly cheap on some really nice ships.

I've been doing tons of research on cruises and cruising, and here's some of the cruising websites I've found for finding good cruise deals.

VacationsToGo.com [vacationstogo.com]: This site not only has a bunch of great deals, but this site has a TON of information about every ship out there and is the one-stop source I ALWAYS go back to in getting all the info I need about every ship, every line, and about each individual cruise. When shopping for a cruise, ALWAYS KEEP THIS BOOKMARKED OR KEEP THIS ONE IN A SEPARATE TAB SO YOU CAN REFER BACK TO IT. Trust me. nod

Travelzoo [travelzoo.com]
Cruisedeals.com [cruisedeals.com]
7BlueSeas.com [7blueseas.com]

Cruising, especially to the caribbean since it's out of Florida and New Orleans, which were hit so hard by the hurricanes, are so cheap right now because they want to bring business back. Cruises are 50-75% off what they normally are. I mean, a 7 day cruise for $429 a person is not bad, and I've seen a few for that price. Check it out.

Here's a site that I think is better than farecast:

www.sidestep.com

I've used it for years and I really like the way they display the results format. And its very user friendly...

take care

Agreed. It's a good site. But check the Travel Deals sticky in the Help Me Find a Deal forum, it's already there.

here's a couple great sites to find cheap youth hostels anywhere...

http://www.trav.com/
just click on the youth hostels link under accomodation type on the left side of the screen

www.hostelworld.com is a great resource to find hostels as well plus it gives you reviews from people that have stayed there and ranks each according to safety, convenience, etc...

i got a $12 a night room in barcelona with free wifi Smilie


my $12 per night hostel in barcelona had free bed bugs!

there are many nice hostels, it's better to buy when you arrive and can 'see' the place. one exception would be the first night if you arrive late.

get some diatomaceous earth for the bed bugs, you should be in good shape after that.

I hope this is the right place to put it.

http://www.expedia.com/daily/prom...id=111853&

The following is from the Expedia.com website. I don't think I can use it because the fine print also says that travel must be by Dec 31, 2006.

Thinking of taking a trip? It's the perfect time to start planning, because when you book a flight + hotel package today, you'll save $100—instantly! Simply book your package of (3) three nights or more by October 8, and use the coupon code SAVE100. It's that easy. You can even use your coupon along with our fantastic 10th Anniversary Sale deals. Talk about a win-win situation!
