Websites for Travelers

Deal Sites

  • Expedia — Expedia is a great travel website worth visiting when you are planning a trip. It provides vacation packages, cruises and even helps you build your travel online primarily because it is also a travel agency
  • Hotwire — Hotwire is a robust site that offers some of the best travel deals available. Also Hotwire partners offer unsold inventory at big savings
  • Hostel World — A huge portfolio of hostels is offered on this site. This is one of the most comprehensive sites for budget accommodations
  • Kayak — The only place you need to search for discounted airfare is Kayak. It searches over 140+ airlines and travel agencies to aggregate the best flight deals all in one place
  • Priceline — Great value options, plus a bidding function that can sometimes get you rock bottom prices
  • Travelocity — Like Expedia and Hotwire, Travelocity is also a travel agency that provides vacation packages, flight information, where to stay and even last-minute packages
  • Travelzoo — This site is best for bargain hunters who can sign up for a weekly e-mail of top 20 deals
