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.

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.

european discount airlines:

www.ryanair.com
www.easyjet.com
www.air-berlin.com (germany)
www.volareweb.com (italy)
www.virgin-express.com

there is also a wiki-article about other airlines, but those are the major players for cheap cheap travel. http://wikitravel.org/en/Discount...t_airlines


just note that they often don't fly out of major airports, so getting from london heathrow to london stansted may be a great hassel unless you are very cheap and exceptionally patient.

Go to http://www.grab2travel.com
Go to "Flight" section

Also try "SmartSearch"... you can compare prices on all major travel sites by entering trip detail once... once you enter ur dates etc.. you are good to go to compare.. I liked that place.. you can do similar search for Flights, Cars, Hotels, Cruises, Vacation Packages etc...

Just looked todays list and the east coast fairs. HKG to IAD, FLORIDA, NY ETC $560

Sydney Australia now in shoulder season $360

Sweden $600

Shanghai $260

Mumbia India $380

Delhi India $350

Moscow $410

When searching and you see a deal why not post here as many people go to HK and can do some cheap mileage runs from here.

All these were found on www.travelsexpert.com and there are many more this is just a sample. The best thing about this site is you can ask for your exact dates, they'll confirm and all you have to do is give an email address, no crediti card info etc. but if you want to book then they ask you for your details. Nice change from providing info first and then they tell you.

Enjoy
Robert

PS on this site you get all your miles too, not like other bucket shops.

I'm going to need a flight to Poland, but prices are much higher than last year at this time.
Last year I got out in Feb for $666 otd. Now, the cheapest is 877 and they want 10% of that for my infant daughter. So 87+ $400 taxes/fees/surcharges, and I'm getting robbed.
Anyone know of airlines that don't scalp you if you have an infant? on your lap.


An Idea w I had was to get a flight that connects Through germany and just take a train the rest of the way....
Like, a flight to moscow, that connects through frankfurt perhaps? Anyone ever tried this?
