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

Let me get my two cents in here too because there is one thing that hasn't been covered:

Looking for the best travel deals in travel agencies is impossible. In fact, travel agencies will never have the best travel deals, There's looking through travel brochures, visiting the travel agents [onlytravelgroup.com], pondering over countless locations.
