Travel Deals!

28Oct09

The holidays are known as a time of joy. But for those who have to plan trips across the country, holidays can be a pain in the neck.

Sites like Kayak and Travelzoo, make things a bit easier because they aggregate information directly from airlines as well as other travel-focused sites, such as Expedia, Orbitz and Travelocity. These aggregate sites allow users to find prices on airfare, lodging and travel packages.

Browsers can register with these aggregate sites to receive e-mail updates, saving the headache of constantly checking websites. Frequent adventurers can link with Kayak and Travelzoo through Twitter for a constant, if somewhat hit-and-miss, stream of travel deals.

The weekly e-mails are useful because they can be tailored for a location. For example, a Tuesday Travelzoo e-mail listed discounted fares on domestic flights out of Chicago, while a Kayak e-mail relayed Lufthansa’s 3-day sale on flights to Europe.
