Booking a Vacation

When you think of online travel booking, the first thoughts that come to mind may be the Travelocity gnome or William Shatner pushing Priceline. What the Web's biggest booking agents offer (aside from entertaining advertising) are convenient, all-in-one resources for buying airfare, booking hotels, renting cars, and scoring deals on vacation packages.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Not all sites provide the same information. Airlines negotiate deals that permit specific booking agents to offer the lowest fares for specific flights. Hotels do the same thing for specific dates. Occasionally the airline or hotel offers its best price on its own site, so be sure to shop around.
  • Some agents advertise "huge savings" when you book a flight, hotel room, and rental car as a package. Before you get too excited, check the fine print to see what conditions apply. Generally you'll need a minimum number of travelers and nights, and specific destinations and dates. If you meet the criteria, be sure to compare the price of booking each separately.
  • If a Web site has a "discount" or "deals" section, take a quick look through it: you may find a cheap room or flight that matches your criteria.
