These are the simplest and fastest way to book travel and hotel. All-inclusive sites like these are also motivated to give out many deals. The Expedia coupons program has many travel destinations at a discount prices and they have great some places that you can travel to.
What to do When You’re There
Whether you’re a Blackberry or an iPhone, there are some great travel websites that may help you find those great spots on your nights out. Look to lonelyplanet.com for some great travel blogs and other resources that will make you exclaim, “I want to do that!” Also, often times, the city’s website will list events that are fun for the whole family and sometimes even free.
Here are some other sites that might be helpful to you:
• Metromix.com is found in most large cities. It has listings and short reviews of restaurants, bars and night clubs, and includes some great articles.
• Yelp.com is also found in most large cities. Like metromix.com, it lists popular spots in the city but most of its reviews are user generated, so you can get a taste of what the locals think of a joint. It’s a great resource if you’re looking for something off the beaten path.
The best part of traveling is new experiences. Make sure yours are booked with brains by using your ally, the Internet.
