And the Winner Is – Online Travel

By Paul A. Greenberg

Jan 22, 2002 1:55 PM PT

E-commerce is alive and well online. Those who want solid evidence need look no further than the online travel industry.

As one of the few consumer industries that has established itself and shown measurable growth on the Internet, online travel is no longer focused on basic survival. Instead, the industry is concentrating on its quest for the ingredients of longevity: market share, saturation and profit.

Exhibit A is Travelocity (Nasdaq: TVLY), which last week reported fourth-quarter earnings of US$4.9 million or 9 cents per share. Last year at this time — long before terrorist attacks threatened to put serious dents in the online travel industry — Travelocity reported a Q4 loss of $2.4 million or 5 cents per share.

Reflecting the impact of terrorism on online travel, Travelocity reported that gross travel bookings dropped by $60 million from the year-ago period. But fewer sales apparently did not affect the company’s ability to boost its profits.

Now, there’s an equation that’s easy to live with.

Personal Power

So, what is it about the online travel industry that continues to allow it to emerge as the poster child for e-commerce hope?

Some might say it has everything to do with convenience and cost savings for consumers — and they would be partly correct.

But as one who has booked all of his own travel online for the past two years, I believe online travel’s pull goes deeper than that, especially since the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Booking travel online gives consumers a greater sense of control — especially compared with placing their trust in a travel agent or a faceless phone sales rep from an airline company.

Need for Speed

In addition to its ability to make consumers feel like they are in control of their own destiny, online travel caters to customers’ ongoing love of instant gratification — such as printing e-tickets minutes after purchasing them.

Airlines apparently sense this trend and are making moves to capitalize on it. Several airlines have begun charging extra fees for some paper tickets in an aggressive move to persuade consumers to go the e- ticket route.

Too much too soon? Not at all. According to Forrester Research. by 2003, 70 to 80 percent of all airline tickets will be issued electronically.

Watch and Learn

Another reason online travel continues to flourish is that it never gets too comfortable with its own progress.

Even now, with a growth spurt in full force, the top three players — Travelocity, Expedia (Nasdaq: EXPE) and Orbitz — continue to vie for position and innovate.

Expedia, for example, is expanding its operations to include passport and visa services. Users will be able to research travel access requirements for most countries on the Expedia site, then download necessary document applications and send them directly to Expedia’s new partner, Express Visa Service.

Travelers also can check the status of their travel documents at any time.

Redefining ‘Full Service’

The new economy calls for new definitions of old consumer services.

The online travel industry is doing it right by giving consumers total control over their itinerary and by providing self-directed and comprehensive trip planning.

For example, before a journey to London, a traveler can update or initiate travel documents, research promotional rates, book a flight, find hotel packages, buy a Eurail pass, arrange to be met at the airport by a driver and have a rental car waiting at the hotel.

Isn’t that what e-commerce promised us in the first place?

What do you think?

Let’s talk about it.

Allegiant Air plans more nonstop flights for Pittsburgh #cheap #air #travel

Allegiant Air is making Pittsburgh a base of operations

By Mark Belko / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It won t arrive in time for Mardi Gras but Allegiant Air is giving Pittsburgh-area travelers reason to celebrate: A new nonstop flight to New Orleans.

Allegiant will start twice-weekly service to the Crescent City from Pittsburgh International Airport on Feb. 19. The airline, which is expanding rapidly in Pittsburgh, also is adding a new seasonal flight to Palm Beach, Fla. and expanding its seasonal service to Myrtle Beach.

Since touching down in Pittsburgh last February with flights to three Florida cities, the Las Vegas-based airline has added four others, counting the two new ones to be formally announced today.

It also will make Pittsburgh a base of operations next month, a distinction that will bring with it up to 40 jobs and a permanently-based 156-seat Airbus 319 aircraft.

With the new flights, Allegiant will become the airport s fourth largest carrier in terms of destinations behind Southwest, American and Delta.

Pittsburgh travelers have been pretty enthusiastic about us. We really saw an opening for ultra low-cost service, which Pittsburgh hasn t previously had. The response that we ve seen has been overwhelmingly positive, Allegiant spokesman Justin Ralenkotter said.

Pittsburgh has been without a nonstop flight to New Orleans for 10 years. For at least the last two years, the airport has been offering incentives such as landing fee waivers and increased marketing support to carriers willing to commit to nonstop flights to desired destinations.

In conjunction with that, Allegiant will not have to pay gate or landing fees for the New Orleans and Palm Beach flights for a year.

The twice-weekly New Orleans service will fly into Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Fares will start as low as $39 one way.

Seasonal twice-weekly service to Palm Beach International Airport also will begin Feb. 19 with fares as low as $39 and operate through May 16. Allegiant will be competing on that route with Southwest Airlines, which will be offering a Saturday-only nonstop to the same airport from March 12 through April 9.

We re really not competing for the same passengers as other carriers. We see ourselves as complementing or adding more choice to travel, Mr. Ralenkotter said.

Allegiant will be starting its seasonal twice weekly service to Myrtle Beach April 7 next year, two months earlier than this year.

Mr. Ralenkotter said the route has performed exceptionally well for us. The airline aims for planes that are at least 90 percent full, and the Myrtle Beach flight has exceeded those expectations, he noted.

He added there is no hard or fast rule how quickly the airline expands in a city. Cincinnati, which like Pittsburgh has lost an airline hub, currently has Allegiant flights to 11 cities. Indianapolis has flights to seven destinations.

Pittsburgh has done very well for us. We ve been very pleased with the results that we ve seen from the market there and how people have taken to our service in booking those flights, he said.

Arthur Frommer – s ten best travel websites for 2012 #amigo

#best travel websites
#

From hotel deals to vacation rentals and more, how to surf the web for top holiday bargains

How many websites attempt to help you make the right choice among travel products? The answer is: tens of thousands. But as I prepare for my own vacation trips, or respond to inquiries from friends, relatives or readers, I find myself returning again and again to just 10 of that mammoth array. They are set forth below:

I have deliberately excluded websites prepared by me or with which I am associated – like Frommers.com, my own daily blog or my daughter’s daily blog. My favourites include:

1 For finding hotel rooms in the U.S. Getaroom.com. Though only a fraction of the size of its larger rivals (it accesses hotels in more than 200 cities, but concentrates on bargains in the 57 most heavily visited ones), GetARoom claims to supply unique room rates, and actually encourages you to phone them for even better unpublished rates.

2 For finding hotel rooms in Europe: Venere.com. From its headquarters in Rome, Venere accesses more than 50,000 hotels all over the world, but does best – and offers special bargain rates – in European cities, for which you should primarily use it.

3 For finding low-cost overnights in private homes worldwide: Airbnb.com. After only three years in existence, this San Francisco outfit is handling tens of thousands of bookings in private apartments and homes all over the world. Usually, the owner remains in residence while you occupy a guest bed or room.

4 For snaring a free overnight in the home or apartment of gracious, generous people worldwide: Couchsurfing.org. It reveals an awesome number of people who will put you up as a free guest. A runner-up in this field: GlobalFreeLoaders.com.

5 For vacation homes or rental apartments: VRBO.com. Its initials standing for “vacation rental by owner,” it eliminates the middleman, puts you in direct touch with the landlord, but therefore requires that you carefully check references. If you do, you’ll often obtain remarkable values for your next vacation stay.

6 For unbeatable airfares both here and overseas: Momondo.com. This Danish-based “aggregator” of flights, operated by a handful of people aided by what apparently is a remarkable computer program, has frequently provided me with airfare bargains that no other website revealed.

7 For sharp discounts on your next cruise: Vacationstogo.com. Though more than a dozen cruise brokers compete for your business (CruisesOnly.com, iCruise.com, OnlineVacationCenter.com, CruiseCompete.com, TravelThemesAndDreams.com and many more), this one presents its offerings in such clear, understandable fashion as to win my vote.

8 For discounted prices on your next auto rental: Autoslash.com. In addition to revealing low rates, it also draws your attention to special coupon offers that can reduce your costs even more. It’s in heavy competition with the longer-established BreezeNet.com, which also should be consulted.

9 For lower-cost shore excursions on your next cruise: Shoretrips.com. In addition to offering lower rates in nearly every major port at which the big cruise ships stop, it also places you in

12-passenger vans instead of the 45-passenger motorcoaches used by the cruise lines themselves.

August Vacation Rentals Specials!

View Lowest Accommodation Prices and View Photos HERE!

Accommodation Deals

Comparing accommodation prices before booking is a excellent way to save money towards your next vacation getaway. It doesn t matter if you are booking a fully furnished hotel or rental for a family reunion, a golf getaway, a romantic trip, your honeymoon, a anniversary, or even because you need a place to stay in between moves or due to a job relocation.

Whatever the reason may be, a vacation home rental has more space than the typical hotel room . is often less expensive, and simply makes sense!

The Webs Top Accommodation Deals Are Found at:

Most advertised rentals are also well equipped with full kitchens or kitchenettes, private pools, multi-bedrooms, entertainment rooms and some even have amenities such as a Whirlpools, Hot-Tubs, Game Rooms, etc.

The great thing about renting a vacation home by owner is that it offers amenities that can be enjoyed by kids of all ages as well as adults, seniors and some even allow pets to stay with you. Now that s what we call convenience at a Home Away from home.

The best part about renting a vacation home is that there is never any hotel staff disturbing you .EVER! Cleaning service is arranged well after your vacation rental period is over leaving you and your family free to come and go as you please.

3 Online Travel Sites You Shouldn t Miss

With so many travel booking websites out there, it’s sometimes hard to know which one to use. While many of us are familiar with larger, established sites like Expedia, Travelocity, and Kayak, there are a number of up and coming travel sites you may not be as familiar with.

Updated (9/15/2011):

One of the newest flight search engines to hit the radar is Google Flights . Launched in September, 2011, it hasn’t reached our favorites list yet, but it does look quite promising.

Google Flights is powered by technology Google acquired earlier in the year when it finalized the purchase of Cambridge, Mass. based ITA Software. While not substantially different from other sites that let you search for flights, it is one of the fastest we’ve used. The site uses location information from your computer to anticipate your departure airport and it pre-fills this info into the flight search form. (The site correctly guessed our airport when using a desktop computer near Washington, D.C. but oddly thought we’d be departing from New York when using an Android smartphone with GPS enabled at the same desk.) Start the search by entering a destination city (or choosing one from the list of popular destinations) and a list of flights is immediately displayed based on a 5-day trip beginning about 2 weeks from today. A clever calendar view displays a bar graph of prices by date and a scatter graph lets you move sliders to find the best balance of price and flying time. Clever, albeit a bit complicated.

Once you’ve found the flight you want, the site takes you to the website of your chosen airline and pre-fills the info about your selected flight to help speed your purchase — though this feature didn’t work for some airlines. As with most Google products, expect a series of rapid improvements and enhancements in the near future as the product matures.

And now, for our current favorite travel booking websites:

This “hip” site has a clean, intuitive design which makes it a breeze to search for a flight or hotel. A simple form on the homepage lets you enter your desired flight or hotel information, while the HipMunk mascot, a travel-ready chipmunk, smiles at you. Results are displayed chronologically in a novel Gantt-chart format that makes it easy to zero in on the departure and arrival times. (You can also sort by price, stops, departure time, arrival time, or duration.) Our favorite sorting criteria, which is also the default, is the “Agony” option—which combines price, duration and number of stops into a single criteria.

A tab at the bottom right, which also appears on the home page, offers the option of live help. The hotel search on HipMunk gives you the option to select a hotel based on what you want near you—whether that be shopping, food or nightlife. The results are displayed on a map with each hotel represented by a dot, so you can easily see which hotels are nearest your chosen activity.

Momondo is another easy new way to start your travel plans. Taking a slightly different approach, Momondo searches 800+ travel sites to help you find and compare flights, hotels, and car rentals. Choose your best option and get linked to the airline or travel agency that offers that deal.  Enter your preferred dates right on the homepage, and a list of flight options shows up very quickly.

You can narrow your results by the number of stops, preferred airlines, layover cities or price. The beauty of Momondo is how deep it goes pulling the best deals for you—ones you may have spent hours looking for and still not found. Its search engine moves fast, and moves through it all, to find you your best travel options.

Matrix is a refreshing take on the travel booking site. Its Spartan design may be a turn-off for some but we like that the site is uncluttered and free of advertisements. (Matrix is the software that powers many of the larger travel sites including CheapTickets and Orbitz.) In lieu of fancy design, the folks at Matrix have clearly spent their time refining the ways to shop for your travel plans. Complete your initial search, which requires a bit more information than HipMunk and Momondo, such as the option to choose which cabin you prefer, and your search results appear.

The results promise the best deals, but the real fun begins once you choose an option that may work. Click on your chosen option, and it takes you to another page where you can view events and tours that are happening during your trip.

The Bottom Line

Despite different features these sites offer, many of us still use travel sites primarily to search for the lowest price. To see how these sites stacked up against each other and the competition, we priced three sample trips: Raleigh-Durham to Las Vegas, Denver to Orlando, and Phoenix to Chicago.

For all three trips, the prices were the same across all the sites—including Expedia and Travelocity. We also like that the airfare on these three sites included all the fees and tariffs in the total so you see the price you’ll actually pay.

Asking for a lot of money #incentive #travel

#cheapest flight

Asking for a lot of money

Most people dream of making a lot of money. The question is, what does that mean?

The truth is that money is highly subjective. Certainly, a billion dollars is a lot of money; there are only a handful of billionaires in the world. Is a million dollars a lot? In terms of total wealth, no; a significant minority of the population has a million dollars or more in total assets to leave to their heirs, largely due to the appreciation of real estate. Were one to make a million dollars a year, however, that person would be among the most highly paid in the world.

Personal perception has a significant role in determining the amount of money that a person can expect to make. The reason for this is that the two factors that most influence earnings–level of demonstrable skill, and payment requested from an employer–are very dependent upon the individual. Moreover, while skill is partially based on individual confidence and partially dependent upon innate ability, the amount of money that a person asks an employer to provide is solely based on the individual.

Of course, the two are related. One cannot have a minimal skillset and expect to receive a high salary. However, many people have excellent skillsets yet are paid comparatively little versus their peers. Why?

The truth is, they probably didn’t ask–or if they did, they didn’t ask in a way that conveyed they really thought that they deserved what they wanted. In many cases, the boss knows the most that he or she can pay, but will be pleased to pay less if an employee will accept it.

Of course, the boss will not tell the employee what he or she can actually afford to pay. But dealing with that is comparatively easy in the Information Age: there are salary guidelines for given locales and positions available on the Internet. The real challenge is not asking a high level of compensation, but feeling that you deserve the high level of compensation for which you are asking.

To do that, one must understand the relative value of money. We have established that being a billionaire is truly remarkable, and that accumulating a million dollars over a lifetime is not but that making a million dollars per year is. What about lower income levels–the sort that we tend to see in everyday life?

How much is a lot?

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Federal Poverty Guideline for a family of four in 2006 is $20,000. A family that makes this amount or less is, by definition, poor.

The median income reported for a family of four in 2006, however, ranged from a low of $45,867 in New Mexico to a high of $87,412 in New Jersey. These figures include single- and multi-earner households.

Consider a candidate in New Jersey who holds a degree in a moderate-demand field. Will he or she accept a salary of $20,000? Probably not. Expecting a salary of $87,412 may seem excessive, though, because he or she would, as a single earner, be requesting the average income of a family of four.

But is it excessive? Actually, no; if $87,412 is the median salary–meaning there are an equal number of earners above and below that mark–the candidate could, in fact, confidently request $90,000 or more. The reaction from a hiring manager would depend in part on the industry and also in part of the applicant’s specific skillset. Another candidate, in another job, however, could ask for it and get it. The trick is to have the audacity to ask.

A real-life story

Shortly after I finished college, someone I knew earned $40,000 a year. His stated goal was to reach a salary of $50,000. He worked hard to apply himself to education and professional development, and volunteered for special projects to expand his skillset.

His next job offer caught him off-guard: $73,000. He took it, of course, astonished at how much he now made. Within a few months, though, he realized that others in the field made considerably more. He stayed active in professional development and worked hard to master new skills.

A year into the job, he requested an increase in salary, providing his employer with salary survey data and other information. He received a raise to $89,000 and was offered an incentive plan based on performance.

After three years, he decided to leave. He interviewed at a number of top companies that were excited to meet him. He had an offer from one for $110,000 and then got an offer from another for $115,000. Deciding that he prefered the first company, he asked if they would increase their offer. Knowing that this would require approval, however, he offered to take an initial salary of $100,000 until he finished his probationary period. They accepted.

Four years ago, he aspired to someday make $50,000. Today, he makes $115,000–and considers $200,000 to be easily within reach given a few more years. And why?

Best home-rent vacation sites #boston #travel

The lure of holidaying in someone else’s home

In the last week Airbnb — the online accommodation matchmaker — sailed past 10 million bookings. That’s 8 million more than this time last year.

With travelers now making one booking on the site every two seconds, it’s the kind of growth that suggests sleeping in someone else’s home is not just acceptable to travelers, it’s something they actively want to do.

“As long as the world’s economy is still floundering,” says Thomas Lam, research head of property analysts Knight Frank, “travelers will look for cheap accommodation.”

Sites such as Airbnb, Roomorama and Great Space provide that option. They connect travelers with homeowners who are willing to rent out their rooms for a few days, and guesthouses and budget hotel businesses will feel the pinch in the long run, Lam said.

“While it can be cheaper to stay in hostels, even if you’re a solo traveler, renting an apartment can be a nice change from the hotel circuit and a comfortable way to feel at home far away,” says Jodi Ettenberg, author of travel blog Legal Nomads .

But which are the best, and what are their differences?

Here are some popular home-rent sites you could consider before your next trip.

Airbnb

Cheaper than hotels. in some cases.

Best for. Anyone hoping to avoid a hotel.

Price per night. From US$10 for an attic room in Italy to US$4,000 for a luxury home in Los Angeles.

When I took a month-long stay at an Airbnb host’s apartment in Hong Kong, it amounted to approximately US$2,315. Not cheap, but significantly less than any hotel offering the same amenities.

San Francisco-based Airbnb now markets around 200,000 bookable properties worldwide, everything from small single rooms to villas and castles.

Half are in Europe, around 55,000 in North America, 20,000 in Latin America and the remainder spread around Asia, Africa and Australia.

Guests can leave comments about their accommodation after staying, and hosts can leave comments about their guests, informing future hosts if there were any problems.

Airbnb also provides a US$1,000,000 “host guarantee ” policy to cover damage up to that amount. However this has come in for some criticism as a somewhat empty promise .

Searching is easy, and guests and hosts communicate via a site-based form. The only problem here is that both parties need to be responsive if a booking is going to go through. Not all hosts are as business-oriented as the hotel chains who have been doing this for decades.

Earlier this year Airbnb bought Crashpadder, a British-based site with around 7,000 spare rooms, not entire homes, in approximately 2,000 cities, including far-flung destinations like Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Dubai and Aruba.

That will help with the Olympics coming up, as Crashpadder had launched a new feature — London Olympic 2012 zone — to help people find accommodation close to the sporting events.

“Because we offer spare bedrooms in people’s homes, our hosts care a great deal about the experience their guests have,” said Crashpadder’s founder, Stephen Rapoport, before the acquisition.

“It also means you have a friendly local expert on hand to help you get the most out of a new city, recommend the best local restaurants, help you understand public transport, plan your itinerary and more.”

Roomorama

40,000 offices away from home.

Best for. Business travelers with a little extra to spend.

Price per night. From US$70 for a bedroom in Singapore to US$420 for an apartment in Greece.

Roomorama caters to travelers with mid- to high-end budgets. Visitors can choose from more than 40,000 properties worldwide.

According to Jia En Teo, co-founder of Roomorama, popular destinations include New York, London, Paris, Sydney, Shanghai, Beijing and Tokyo. Travelers are mainly from the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Italy and Singapore.

Teo says the business focus is on obtaining high-quality properties that are “professionally managed.”

“Most of the properties on our site are owned by the hosts or managed by agents, but 80 or 90 percent of Roomorama properties are owned by hosts who have bought properties to rent out.”

The site is also targeted at business travelers, with the intention of being more cost-efficient than regular hotels. “Most apartments will be equipped with free Wi-Fi, washer, dryer and some even come with free parking — when you add up the cost savings that come from these extras, they can be rather significant,” says Teo.

A mobile application and instant booking services are pending features.

Great Space Inc.

Embrace the unexpected, head to Australia.

Best for. Travelers to Australia.

Price per night. US$17 for a studio apartment in Victoria to US$10,500 for a luxury home in Sydney.

With more than 1,000 listings, Great Space Inc. is a relative newcomer to the home rental industry and offers customers “experiential mobility,” as co-founder and CEO James Edwards puts it.

“We encourage people to embrace the unexpected, get outside their comfort zone, meet real people and expand their worlds,” says Edwards. “Throw away your guidebook and go with the flow, locally.”

The company’s main focus is the Asia-Pacific region, where people in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong use their services most frequently. Mobile applications are planned for later in the year.

Homeowners do take a risk when leasing their premises to strangers. According to Edwards, his company minimizes this issue by deploying a safety team to monitor the website and make physical checks on properties.

HomeAway

It’s big, and it’s coming your way.

Best for. Travelers to the United States.

Price per night. US$50 for a villa in Florida to US$750 for a beachfront home in California.

With 300,000 properties on its books, HomeAway claims to be the world’s biggest vacation rental site. And it’s likely to get bigger.

It has been on an expansion spree this year, buying a small stake in Tijua.com, a vacation rental site for China, and Toprural.com, a similar site for countryside accommodations in Southern Europe.

But it’s in the United States where it’s strongest, with thousands of homes in every state available for rent, including a luxurious condo in Hawaii for US$160 a night, one of its recent highlights.

“A family that stays together in one hotel room, with mom and teenaged Sally in one double bed and snoring dad and baby Johnny in the other, is, well, anything but relaxed,” the company states on its site.

“The multiple bedrooms and additional living space found in vacation rentals on HomeAway.com means the whole family can rest easy while on vacation. Many owners designate their houses ‘pet-friendly’ too, meaning even the furriest family member can have a little R R.”

Couchsurfing

Where to meet other cheapos.

Best for. Backpackers and other paupers.

Price per night. Free.

Lastly, CouchSurfing deserves a mention because its services have fostered a sense of community among global travelers.

Potential “couchsurfers” contact registered hosts with a spare bed (or couch) on the site, or even if they just to socialize with people when visiting a new city.

Elaine Ho, a teacher from Singapore, has couchsurfed in Paris and Kolkata.

“One thing about couchsurfing is that we find like-minded folks online and connect that way — if you’ve seen the online profiles, you get a sense of the person you’re going to meet,” she says.

“It’s a quick snapshot, which gives you an idea of whether you’d like the person. At best, you find best friends. At worst, you find a host you don’t really click with, but at least you get shown around a little.

“It’s like a global community just waiting to connect with you out there,” she adds.

Bidder beware on travel auction sites – Tips – Travel. #travel

Bidder beware on travel auction sites

Related coverage

October 12, 2008

There are bargains on travel auction sites, but do your research, writes Jane E. Fraser.

Auction websites are making big inroads into the travel industry, with consumers now able to place bids on anything from hotel rooms to tours and cruises. Travellers are attracted to such sites by the promise of a bargain: the potential to either spend less or get a more luxurious holiday for their money.

An extensive search of travel auction sites by The Sun-Herald came up with varied results, including excellent deals, mediocre deals and a few nasty traps.

One luxury Gold Coast hotel suite we watched sold in an auction for a mere $360 for three nights.

A check of the hotel’s own website found that, while the travel auction site had dramatically overstated what the package was worth, the auction price was still very cheap.

The lowest rate on the hotel’s website for the same dates was a little more than $700, making the auction price a bargain.

However, many prices found on auction websites turned out to be the same or similar to those available through other sources, including booking directly with the hotels. What were being held up as cheap auction prices were, in fact, standard low-season rates or routine promotional offers from the hotels.

Another possible trap was auction sites selling discount vouchers rather than actual holidays. Some hotels came up in searches with very low prices but the stated rate turned out to be the cost of the discount voucher, not the accommodation itself. The voucher could save a lot of money but the sellers rarely take responsibility for availability of the dates you want to travel.

If you are considering buying a discount voucher, double-check and triple-check if there are any conditions or blackout periods that might make it difficult to redeem.

Checking the conditions and fine print applies to any auction purchase. One offer found on a popular auction website looked like a great deal but had a condition that the buyer must attend a “presentation” during their holiday. Such presentations usually prove to be pressure-selling sessions and should be avoided – not to mention that it is your holiday and you should be free to do as you please.

The website states that travellers who refuse to attend the presentation during their stay may be charged the full rate for their hotel room.

Another thing to be wary of when bidding for travel is that it is easy to get carried away or make bad decisions under time pressure.

Auction sites tend to use phrases such as “book now”, “be quick” or “last chance”, yet there is every chance that an identical package will be listed once the current one has sold.

One final warning: hunting through online auctions can be extremely time-consuming. By the time you have compared the prices, checked all the conditions, looked up the pictures of the hotel and made sure you are booking with a legitimate agency, you will probably have spent many hours on the task.

Then again, you might just get a bargain.

AUCTION CHECK LIST

* Are you buying the actual holiday or just a voucher?

* Cross-check the price against other sources.

* Don’t be fooled by claims about the full, or “normal”, price.

* Check for blackout dates and special conditions.

* Check that there is a licensed travel agency behind the site.

* Check what currency the price is in.

* Don’t be rushed into making the wrong choice.

IS YOUR MONEY SAFE?

One of the problems with travel auction sites is that it can be hard to know who you are dealing with.

Glen Wells, chief executive of the Travel Compensation Fund, which provides consumer protection for Australian travellers, says most Australian travel auction sites are backed by licensed travel agencies.

“The majority are quite legitimate but there might be some that [are not],” he says.

Wells recommends a “buyer beware” approach and says people should check before handing over any money.

The 10 Best Websites To Help You Book Cheap Flights

This is the time of year when my friends and family start to ask me What s the best website to book a cheap flight? . With 2015 finally upon us, everyone is getting excited about using that new batch of vacation days they got when the clock struck midnight.

Booking a cheap flight and the best flight are not always the same thing. Sometimes you have to spend a little more to have a better experience but ultimately the decision is yours. We re here to show you the best tools available online, no matter what your goal is when booking a flight.

If you still use Expedia to search for flights we have some important news for you. Stop. Stop it right now. Delete it from your bookmarks. Done? Okay, good.

Whether you want someone to do all the work for you (FlightFox) or wanted a detailed analysis of your trip (Momondo) we ve got options for everyone. We actually highly recommend you use 3 or 4 of these sites at one time to find the best price and flight for your vacation.

Adioso

What is it? Adioso takes the guessing games out of when to fly, for how long and where to.

Who is it for? Travelers with flexible schedules who want to quickly find the best flights for their trips.

Adioso is amazing. If you’ve never used it, your life is about to change. Not sure where and when you want to go? Enter a general timeline for when (June) and where (Europe) and Adioso will give you the best cities to visit at the best prices. What’s even more incredible is their natural language search engine. It let’s you input searches like “NYC to South America in July for 12 days” and out comes the perfect results for your dream trip.

My favorite part of Adioso for the traveler who knows exactly what they want, is their “Smart View” flight finder. Simply put in your exact dates and location and out comes 3 options for your journey: the cheapest trip, the best overall trip and the shortest flight. It takes out all the hard work of looking through every flight to find your best options.

FlightFox

What is it? FlightFox is a marketplace of flight experts who find you the best flights.

FlightFox is perfect for the traveler who wants to save money but doesn’t want to do the hard work. It’s all the best parts about using a travel agency without having to actually leave your house. For a small fee of $49 you can have a team of 15 experts from FlightFox work to find you the best flights at the best prices. Simply sign up, submit your itinerary and trip goals (where, when, how long, to save money, flexibility, etc) and let the team of experts at FlightFox do all the hard work. Their customer feedback and satisfaction says a lot about how good they are. See for yourself.

Airfare Watch Dog

Google Flight

What is it? Google’s very own flight search engine that uses a powerful software to find routes/prices.

One of my favorite tools for finding the best time to fly is Google Flights. Google purchased the licensing rights to ITA Matrix in 2011 (a travel agents best friend) and now they use the software to power their flight engine searches. Google Flights offers a really great map view to help you drag and drop to different destinations. It also shows you each month at a glance so you can help figure out which days, weeks or months are cheaper to fly to your favorite destinations. We recommend using Google Flights as a tool to the start of your research before you move on to more detailed searches and bookings.

SkyScanner

RouteHappy

What is it? A flight search engine that rates your results based on various factors that impact your happiness.

Routehappy has one goal in mind: to give you the best price with the best experience. Each result from your search is graded out of 10 on their “Happiness Scale” based on 6 different factors like legroom, Wi-Fi, time traveled and more. You’ll find that a majority of the time flights rated with the highest happiness factor (8+) are also one of the cheapest available. RouteHappy also work with SkyScanner (mentioned previously) to make sure you’re seeing all the best flight options available. That’s a win win in our books.

The Flight Deal

What is it? Blog/Twitter account that posts only the best of the best flight deals and discounts available.

Momondo

What is it? A search engine that offers detailed analysis and insights for your requested trip.

What impacts the price of flights from your local airport? What’s the cheapest time of the year to fly from JFK? What’s the best airline to fly with to your destination? Momondo answers all these questions and more. They set themselves apart from other airlines by offering you the same at a glance services on top of their incredibly detailed and thoughtful analysis. Seriously, the amount of information they gather and present about your trip is insane. Try a search for yourself and click on “Flight Insight” to see what we’re talking about.

Sometimes a computer just can’t do the trick no matter how many algorithms it wants to run. Use Momondo to analyze all the information they present and then decide for yourself what flight is right for you.

Hipmunk

What is it? A flight search engine that factors in every aspect of your journey before showing you the best flight.

Hipmunk is a flight search engine with a personality and we love it. Hipmunk’s “Agony” search engine will present you with the best flights, at the best prices, that offer the most bang for your buck. They’ll show you what they consider the best airfare but it may be $100 more than other cheaper fares. When that flight is 5 hours faster, has 3 more inches of legroom (yes, please!) and no connections, you won’t be complaining about the price difference. Cheap doesn’t always mean it’s the best option.

Combine that with a beautiful website and interface and you’ve got one of our favorite flight search engines on the web.

Booking Flights – Clear Browser Cookies #travel #to #london

Clear Browser Cookies When Booking Flights

By Greg Rodgers. Asia Travel Expert

Greg Rodgers is an experienced travel writer, photographer, and world nomad. In 2005, Greg traded his corporate office for a backpack and set out to see the world; he never came back.

When booking flights, does clearing the browser cache make a difference?

Each time you make the same search, you are expressing interest (and increasing demand) for a particular flight. Your searches are saved, both as a cookie on your personal device and as a database entry on the server side.

Continue Reading Below

The Flight-Comparison Secret

Flight comparison sites are savvy enough to leverage technology — without your knowing — to increase their chances of landing your business. Some other tricks involve increasing all the prices after the date for which you searched, just to pressure you into thinking that flight prices are going up if you wait to buy.

It s true. Try searching for the same flight using a different device, and if possible, in a different place.

You ll notice discrepancies in flight prices for sure.

So the secret is out: big booking sites track your previous flight searches to figure out just how much you really want that flight! And they use more than just cookie technology to do so. IP address and geographical location are also taken into account. That s why simply clearing your browser cache before booking a flight may not be good enough.

Let s say, for instance, you check a flight price on Monday. The booking site will save the search as a cookie in your browser.

Continue Reading Below

If you return later that week and search for the same flight several times, as many people do to see if the price has dropped, they will actually increase the flight price by a marginal amount.

After planning and searching, would you not purchase an international flight if it had only gone up $50? Insiders know to clear their browser cookies or to turn on anonymous browsing before each new flight search. Doing so makes the booking sites think that this is your first look at a flight price. Along with clearing cookies. you can also try using a completely different computer, your phone, or turning on anonymous browsing.

Paranoid? A little. But I ve personally booked scores of flights and have seen this cookie scam play out several times. I first realized the difference in identical fares after searching for prices on two different computers.

Try an experiment: call or email a friend in a bigger city and have them use the same flight comparison site to check the price on the same flight you want. Big booking sites even use geographical data to guess at whether or not you can afford to pay more for a given flight!

Finding the Best Deals on Flights

Pulling the trigger on a $900 flight isn t exactly an easy thing to do.

No matter how many times I do it, and no matter how exciting the destination in Asia  seems, sometimes getting your finger to click that final purchase button takes Herculean strength. But knowing that you received a fair price and didn t fall victim to an old booking trick helps — a lot.

This is step-by-step how I find the cheapest flights to Asia. Experts say that a majority of passengers on any given flight have all paid different fares. We can at least strive to be near the bottom of that range.

Booking flight tickets together or in separate parts? Travel Stack Exchange

#book flight tickets

Booking flight tickets together or in separate parts?

order by

The catch is that if you book the tickets separately and then the flight from A to B is delayed, causing you to miss the flight from B to C, it becomes your problem to arrange for alternative transport from B to C. The airline has no obligations towards you, even if it was their own delayed flight that caused the issue. Worse still, if the B->C ticket had a return C->B that will likely be cancelled as well since you missed the first flight on the ticket.

If you had booked the entire trip as a single ticket, the airline would however be responsible for getting you to C if the earlier flight was delayed. This may include putting you up (for free) in a hotel overnight if there are no more flights to C on that day.

Of course, the airline may exceed their obligations and put you on a later flight at no or little cost to you. But the only way to be sure that failed connection will not result in significant additional cost is to book the trip as a single ticket. Budget airlines, in particular, are unlikely to show you any flexibility.

Another consideration (which may not be relevant in the question here as it is the same airline, but applies to connections between different airlines) is that you may need to claim and recheck your luggage at B. If it is a single ticket you should always be able to check your luggage through to your destination (assuming you don’t need to collect it to go through customs).

Budget Travel Tips for Europe #cheap #flights #hotels

Budget Travel Tips for Europe

Practical, how-to budget travel advice is indispensible. There s something particularly valuable about travel advice that opposes the emphasis on expensive hotels and other forms of high-end consumption that characterizes the contemporary travel media, perhaps especially in regions like Europe where costs are generally quite high.

Budget-friendly travel in Europe is no impossible dream, and the following sites are good for inspiring shoestring feats, assessing likely costs, and, above all else, disproving the idea that you have to spend hundreds of dollars a day to see Europe well. For some ideas about where to travel affordably in Europe, check out last week s ten budget-friendly European destinations post.

1. Less Than a Shoestring. Though no longer publishing on a regular basis, the archives of this blog are astoundingly helpful in their low-budget audacity. Particularly useful for anyone scared off at the thought of Europe s cost index are the blog s Baring my Budget posts, which run through budgets for various short trips in great detail: three nights in Malta for €50 (currently $66); five days in London for £85 (currently $133); four nights in Venice for €91 (currently $120), all departing from Berlin. Costs breakdowns are provided in these Baring my Budget posts, as are the freebies encountered along the way. The mention of freebies is particularly helpful, as it reveals how often tourist information, maps, museum admission, and various cultural performances can be accessed free of charge. Though this series ran over two years ago, it is still very relevant.

2. EuroCheapo. Disclosure: I worked as an editor at EuroCheapo for almost three years and continue to do occasional freelance projects for the site. Phew. Glad I got that out of the way. Personal loyalty aside, EuroCheapo really is an enormously helpful resource. It is first and foremost as a hotel review site with useful descriptions of hotels written by trained hotel reviewers. EuroCheapo also edits a great blog full of essential budget-oriented tips penned by correspondents on the ground.

3. Guardian s budget travel section. To be fair, the Guardian s budget travel section is good for destinations around the world, though the density of articles on the UK, France, Italy, Spain, and other European countries is impressive. Recent articles that showcase well the newspaper s creatively open approach to the subject of budget travel include Susan Greenwood s budget Stockholm journey story, indebted to insider tips provided by a local blogger; a piece on backpacking in the Crimea by Maxton Walker; and Benji Lanyado s TwiTrips series, for which the author receives tips via Twitter about the city he s visiting and then liveblogs his discoveries. The most recent TwiTrip series installment sees Lanyado visiting Liverpool .4. Flycheapo. This site felt buzzing and electrified back when Europe s low-cost airlines were announcing new routes weekly. With all the route cut-backs and cancellations of the last few years, the site sees far fewer regular updates. Nonetheless, Flycheapo is still an essential place to look for route information for inexpensive flights around Europe. The site provides new route news snippets, a route index, an airline index, and a route search, all of which are helpful for figuring out potential itineraries for low-cost air journeys across Europe.

5. Deutsche Bahn. Indispensible for figuring out train itineraries, Bahn.de features Europe-wide train schedules in enthralling detail. Bahn.de is also a much cheaper place for purchasing advance train fares than US-based agents. A very helpful run-down of how much cheaper these fares can be as well as information on how to access Deutsche Bahn sales personnel in English can be found in two posts by the editors of hidden europe magazine, here and here .

Cheap flights and how to outsmart airlines to get the best

Buy your ticket eight weeks in advance, fly with different carriers or book a risky ‘hidden city’ fare: How to outsmart airlines and find the cheapest flights

View

comments

Thanks to the internet it’s never been easier to book a dream getaway or tailor a trip to one’s desires, but high costs can keep holidaymakers’ travel plans grounded.

One of the most agonising experiences is missing a deal on a flight or booking a ticket and seeing a lower price just days later.

There are a few tricks or secrets people can tap into to secure the lowest possible fare – especially those who plan ahead, are flexible with their travel dates or are willing to take a risk.

Those who are flying to an international destination should book 150 to 225 days in advance, a study found

Book at least eight weeks in advance

For domestic routes, the lowest fares are usually found 50 to 100 days before departure, with the absolute lowest fares found about 57 days prior, according to a study by Expedia and the Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC).

Those who are flying an international route should plan even farther in advance – between 150 and 225 days – with the best deals around the 171-day mark, the study found.

A similar study by CheapAir found that the best time to book a domestic flight falls between 29 and 104 days in advance.

Still, airlines have been known to offer deals on airfare just a couple weeks before departure to fill a plane.

Some website, such as Kayak, allow users to receive a price alert when a fare drops.

Research suggests the lowest possible fares are typically found on Sundays and Tuesdays

Book on a Sunday or Tuesday

Research from ARC suggests that the lowest fares are found on Sundays and Tuesdays, regardless of the domestic or international destination.

Smart travellers will check prices every day of the week, as prices tend to fluctuate.

Experienced travellers know the cheapest flights tend to be early in the morning or late at night

Fly on off-peak days or at off-peak times

Those who are looking to jet abroad for an extended weekend will find the greatest savings if they fly out on a Thursday and return on a Monday.

Alternatively, people who depart on a Saturday and return on a Tuesday can save up to 25 per cent compared with booking a more expensive Sunday return.

FareCompare.com analysed thousands of flights in the US and Canada and determined the cheapest day of the week to fly is Wednesday.

Early risers and those who can sleep on a plane have an advantage, as the cheapest flights tend to be early in the morning or late at night.

And travelling at low season usually guarantees a better deal.

‘Hidden city’ fares involve a passenger booking a flight with a stopover and skipping the connecting flight

Find ‘hidden city’ fares

So-called ‘hidden city’ fares offer big savings and were mostly a secret until the website Skiplagged was sued by United Airlines and Orbitz last year.

A judge threw out the case, arguing it was filed in the wrong court, allowing founder Aktarer Zaman to continue to operate Skiplagged out of a New York City apartment.

It works like this: A passenger books a flight from Point A to Point B with a stopover at their desired destination, and doesn’t bother to board the connecting flight to Point B.

For example, someone looking to travel from New York to St Louis could save more than $60 if they booked a flight from New York to Chicago with a stopover in St Louis, as opposed to a direct flight.

Starting from the majestic Himalayas, sacred Ganges to the serene stretch of sands of the Thar Desert, this country of a billion inhabitants will impress you with its rare diversity. Visit Taj Mahal which is considered the monument of love and was built by mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his loving wife Mumtaz. If you are looking for a romantic outing then the backwaters of Kerala are just perfect. Explore beautiful lakes and lagoons in rice boats and taste delicious seafood with your partner.

Get the Best Fare from India with CheapOair

Choosing the right season of travel can really help you save a lot on your Indian vacation. The period from October-March is considered the peak season of travel with the temperature being neither too hot nor too cold. Temperature in North India varies between 50-75 degrees Fahrenheit during these months. This is also the time when most of the festivals like Dussehra and Diwali take place, so expect to pay high prices for the airfares. If you are looking to save then the summer season (June-July) is the best time to visit. Weather is hot, humid and in some places un-bearable, crossing the 100 degrees Fahrenheit mark in certain regions. You can easily get discounts on both the hotels and airfares during these months.

India Airports

Indira Gandhi International Airport (Delhi), Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (Mumbai) and Anna International Airport (Chennai) are the three major airports that serve this country. These airports are not only world class when it comes to the facilities offered, but also boast of wide networks, offering flights to cities in Europe, Middle East, North America, Australia and Africa. All of these three airports are well connected to the city by several ground transportation choices including private taxis, car rentals and public bus service. While the Indira Gandhi International Airport offers its services to more than 34 million passengers, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport and Anna International Airport handle over 30 million and 12 million passengers respectively.

Cheap Tickets from Philippines

Why you should not miss out on Philippines?

A collection of over 7000 islands, Philippines is an archipelago located at the confluence of the Philippine Sea and South China Sea in South Eastern Asia. The country is known primarily for its pristine beaches along what is one of the largest coastlines in the world. Take a dive in the sea life rich reefs of Tubbataha and Apo Reef National Park that boast of as many as 197 species of corals and 285 species of fish. You can also explore some of the best wreck diving sites of the world while in Philippines. The country is also home to Asia’s only successfully laid out European town, Batad which is now a UNESCO world heritage site owing to the spectacular Banaue Rice terraces.

Book Your Flight from Philippines with CheapOair

Booking your flight with CheapOair helps ensure that you’ll be getting the cheapest available tickets to Philippines. With our Best Price Guarantee, you know that we can provide you with the fantastic low prices on flights to Philippines, and with our 24/7 customer service you can always reach us during your trip.

Tips on buying tickets from Philippines

Philippines is essentially an all year tourist destination, the peak being January to May. New years and the Holy week witness a price rise on hotels up to as mush as three times. If you are traveling to Philippines on a budget, best time to go would be the rainy months from June to September when airfare and hotel prices drop considerably.

Philippines Airports

Most tourists get to Philippines through the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Manila that happens to be one of the busiest airports in the continent. The crowd and typhoon prone nature of this airport could prove to be unfriendly at times and so Mactan-Cebu International Airport comes as a more convenient option. Another one of the major airports is Francisco Bangoy International Airport that has great ground transport facility.

Hi VTers

We would arrive at JFK in the morning (8 am, Terminal 4) and plan to travel to Boston the same day by bus. We are 2 adults and 2 small kids with luggage. We have been to some countries together but this will be our first time to the US – 2+ weeks vacations starting from the 2nd week of December.

From some Internet search, it seems that first we have to make it to Manhattan from JFK to catch the bus to New England – although I’d have preferred bypassing NYC which does not seem possible (?).

Please suggest how to do that as a first timer. Which ticket we should buy, how, and where? We would like to use public transport but may use the taxi if that is necessary. Just to mention, we plan to come back to NYC later.

For NYC-Boston, we intend to take the late afternoon (3-4 pm) bus connection so that we are not rushed. In the best case scenario it looks like that we could reach NYC around afternoon, and will have a few hours to roam/relax around. Would that be a good strategy? Can we leave our luggage at the bus station safely for a few hours (e.g. Megabus)?

We contemplated about staying one night in NYC before moving ahead to Boston but decided otherwise due to reasons.

Cheap Caribbean Vacations

The Caribbean is one of the most sought after travel destinations in the world. Perfect weather, sandy beaches and warm crystal clear blue water is just one of the many reasons that people travel from all over to vacation in this hot spot. Couples and families alike find the Caribbean to be the perfect place to unwind and relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The only problem is finding the best way to afford it. Although not all Caribbean vacations are expensive, cheap Caribbean vacations are often hard to come by. Find the Best Deals at hotels.com!

One way that you can find cheap Caribbean vacations is to look online at discount travel sites. These sites tend to purchase their tickets in bulk, so they are able to offer competitive prices for hotels, travel and other expenses. There are many sites like this that exist today, so make sure to take some time to browse through a few and check out the discounts. If you aren t planning on taking your trip for a little while yet, you should take advantage of the email alerts these sites tend to have on current sales and sign up to make sure you won t miss out on any upcoming discounts.

Another way to plan cheap Caribbean vacations is to find a good travel agent that you trust and have them do the research for you. People tend to shy away from using travel agents when they are trying to save a few bucks because they are under the impression that travel agents tend to cost more than other travel venues, but this is actually just a myth. Many travel agents will even match the price of online discount travel sites in order to keep your business. Travel agents also tend to have the inside scoop into all of the latest and greatest deals, many of which aren t available directly to the public. A travel agent is also able to better customize the trip to your specific requirements and desires than you would be able to do through an online source yourself. They have usually been to your travel destination many times before and will know which venues and locations tend to have the best deals.

One of the best ways to save money on the perfect cheap Caribbean vacations is to travel on the off season with an all inclusive deal. You can find these great savings through discount sites or travel agents alike, and if you are able to be flexible with your travel schedule, you won t beat the price. All inclusive packages typically include the hotel accommodations and food expenses together and sometimes will even include a few excursions at your destination. If you travel in the destination s off season, you will likely be able to add additional savings to your package deal. All inclusive vacations don t typically include travel expenses, but you will likely still save the most money in the long run by taking the route.

If you have wanted to spend some time relaxing in the sunny Caribbean, but don t have a lot of money to spend on planning your dream trip, take some time to look into discount travel sites, travel agents and all inclusive deals. The savings you will find on cheap Caribbean vacations might even astound you! The perfect Caribbean vacation doesn t have to be just an unrealized dream. Take the next step today to plan the trip you have been waiting for!

Travel Website Design – Travel Web Development #christmas #travel #deals

#best travel websites
#

Travel Website Design

Travel is an online business. We all do online research before taking a vacation. Since some of us will spend hours researching a trip before finally booking it on a travel website, design is critical.

Which trip gets reserved is influenced by the website’s photography, writing and navigation. More so than most industries, web design is absolutely crucial to the travel business.

Here are a few of the key elements for travel website design:

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures

Text can only go so far in describing a travel experience. Pictures make all the difference because showing is better than telling. A great travel site has easy to use photo galleries with big, beautiful pictures.

Getting your best photography onto the site and keeping those galleries up-to-date doesn t have to be a big job. We typically integrate Flickr galleries right on web pages which makes it easy to add and change photos. Photoshop is not necessary.

Navigation for Navigators

People looking to travel are going to start with an idea. Some may be browsing for a specific type of trip (river cruise, kayaking, etc.) while others may be looking at specific dates (i.e. February). Still others are considering going to a specific destination such as the Grand Canyon, but all of these visitors are goal-oriented. This type of visitor is frustrated by not finding thle right information easily. This is why travel web design must offer several ways to navigate such as by date, location, activity, cost, etc.

Austin-Lehman s travel website gives visitors lots of navigation options. Visitors can explore the site in several ways. Whether it is by destination or by date, a person can quickly find relevant information and make a decision about a trip. The site is inviting and conveys a sense of adventure as if the trip has already begun.

Style and Theme

There are millions of terrible travel sites so design is a chance to quickly set your business apart. The design should be easy to use for visitors, look fantastic and be easy to update and maintain. Additionally the overall design should match the theme and tone of the travel experience.

Will it be romantic, adventurous or family-friendly? In the first split second a visitor will start forming an opinion about the site based mostly on the design. The design is a chance to convey the actual vacation experience to the visitor. A great travel web design has personality.

For example if you love to fish, you re going to love www.GreatAlaska.com. You know that you re in the right place, because the design relays that message to you. Next you re getting pulled into the photos. You re browsing deeper and deeper on the site. Soon you find you re not just looking at Alaska, you re thinking about Costa Rica. You re going wherever the fish are biting.

Reserve Online (or quick contact)

Once a site has done a good job of building up interest, the next step is absolutely critical: convert the visitors into leads and the leads into customers.

The site needs to make it very easy to take action and book online. At a minimum, the site should convert the visitor into a qualified lead and then you can call to discuss the details. Consequently your site should be ready to take the reservation the instant a person is ready to click submit. If there is any friction between the visitor and the final confirmation receipt page, the visitor may abandon the site entirely.

Sports Traveler helps sports fan go anywhere in the world to see a game. There are hundreds of pages of up-to-date information for sporting events worldwide. Once the visitor s questions are answered and the research is done, then the site expertly funnels the visitor into booking the trip online. The site even connects automatically to inventory systems to ensure the process is efficient and accurate. This type of experience means their visitors are guaranteed to be on time for kick-off.

Tracking and Statistics

Visitors to travel websites have high expectations and this type of demand means constantly evolving travel sites. So be ready to adapt, but don t make changes without good information. Make sure analytics are set up to track where you re getting site traffic. Evaluate what kinds of visitors are turning into leads. Investigate if visitors are having problems with the booking process. Add more information to the popular pages of the site and promote (or consider changing) the less popular areas.

In short, people who are planning a vacation are excited and looking forward to going on a trip. The time spent researching and booking the trip should be an easy decision and not an adventure.

Travel to and in Nicaragua

Getting around Nicaragua is not as easy as it is in other countries… but that doesn’t mean it is difficult to do. Instead of flying between cities, you’re more likely to catch a bus or hire a car. Finding a place to stay isn’t all that difficult either. All you need to do is make sure that you know where you are going and check what services are available to you in those places. So explore the various Nicaraguan travel options before giving up on the idea of visiting this great country.

Hotels

There are a number of reasonable hotels in Nicaragua that provide decent accommodation. Most of them accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express – or you can pay in dollars if you are running short on the local currency. Otherwise you can pay in Cordobas. Hotel staff are generally friendly and speak either English, Spanish or a combination of the two. Make sure you book ahead to secure your room – especially during the holiday season or during festival time.

Car Hire

There are a few car hire agencies in Nicaragua that provide most of the basic services. You can expect to choose from a variety of cars – from jeeps to hit the beaches with or more common compact cars. You could even choose a luxury car or sedan if you wanted to. You can expect to present the necessary paperwork as well as organize insurance and fuel for the vehicle you are going to be driving. Most car rental agencies in Nicaragua are part of a global chain and so uphold more or less the same standards as branches in other countries.

Flights

There are a fair number of airports in Nicaragua. All of them are paved and cater to civilian usage. While there are quite a few large ones, only the Augusto Cesar Sandino airport in Managua has published an instrument approach procedure and has a customs service that is open during airport hours. Some airports are reasonably short and are only suitable for small aircraft. Most of the bigger landing strips can receive aircraft from other countries. There are quite a few connecting flights in the country, but most of the air traffic is from people coming and going from Nicaragua to their home countries.

Cheap Flights to London, United Kingdom (LON) #cheap #tickets #airline

#find the cheapest flights
#

Recent flights forums

Cheap flights to London are available from Darwin International Airport and typically include a transfer in Singapore. Cheap flights exiting Adelaide and Perth on Emirates route through Dubai whilst other carriers may include a flight to either Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. Flights available from Sydney have carriers such as Air China stopping in Beijing, a Malaysia Airlines flight may route via Kuala Lumpur and Etihad transferring through Abu Dhabi. Departures from Brisbane generally route through Kuala Lumpur or Dubai, with cheap flights on Singapore Airlines transferring through Singapore. Ground transportation at Heathrow Airport is just as busy as London itself. A taxi rank is located outside each terminal but whilst convenient, this is a pricey option. The Heathrow Connect rail service travels to Paddington with tickets £9.50 stopping at all stations. The Heathrow Express is a bit more expensive but is the quickest and easiest way to get into the city.

Getting Around London

A little planning or patience will make navigating London simple. Purchase an Oyster card (similar to Melbourne’s Myki card) for the best price and easy transition between services. The London Underground, Docklands Light Rail (DLR) and Overground all use a zonally based fare system. For cheap travel, opt for the red buses which have a flat-fare of less than £2 as does the Tramlink system. London Black Cabs are somewhat expensive and largely unnecessary. Most attractions are within walking distance, are accessible on the extensive public transport network or en route with a guided tour. Barclays Cycle Hire is similar to Brisbane’s City Cycle scheme and is a great way to explore London at your own leisure.

London is much more than the British Museum, Tate Modern and National History Museum. Watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, ride the London Eye and then welcome greater London with open arms. See a human skeleton a little under eight foot tall at the Hunterian Museum, a jar of moles at Grant Museum of Zoology and the cringe-worthy tools at the Old Operating Theatre. Nostalgia is particularly romantic at the Charles Dickens Museum and Pollock’s Toy Museum – round this off with a quick photo at London’s first red telephone box at the Royal Academy entrance. Take a flying trapeze class at Hoxton’s Circus Space, a pottery workshop at Wheelhouse Pottery or an overhead walk through Kew Gardens on the Xstrata Treetop Walkway. The Lee Valley White Water Centre has white-water rafting on the 2012 Olympic course or laze by the huge pool that is Tooting Bec Lido for a cheap afternoon. Of course a trip to London wouldn’t be complete without a ride on an open-air bus tour. If this isn’t enough, join the Jack the Ripper tour for a tasteful, yet gruesome slice of London.

London is an impressive retail palace with equally impressive price tags. Snare a treasure at the Camden Market or Portobello Road Market. Harrods and Harvey Nichols offer high end department store shopping while the Dover Street Market houses multiples levels of boutique style fashion. Visit Lazy Oaf or the amazing emerging talent concept of Wolf & Badger. Liberty is a mall-style shopping dynasty, but if the budget can’t stretch, Bicester Village and The Galleria Outlet Centre should satisfy retail needs. For fine dining, sample the tasting (degustation) menu at Seven Park Place. Gilgamesh offers a group set menu or delight the carnivore within at Hawksmoor Guildhall with their imaginative beef tasting menu. Enjoy roast pheasant at Powder Keg Diplomacy or the Cantonese cuisine of Plum Valley. For a cheap eat visit Lantana, Princi and the Princi Pizzeria for delicious wood-fired pizza. Sip on cocktails at Beaufort Bar or head to the gorgeous jazz sound of Nightjar. Find your way to trendy Experimental Cocktail Club, laid-back Efes Pool Club or the breathtaking backdrop of Club Aquarium. Slow it down at Passing Clouds, party hard at Egg Nightclub or alongside thousands of clubbers at world-famous Ministry of Sound.

Cheap Flights to Orlando

The City Beautiful is one of Florida s largest cities, as well as its most popular tourist destination. Over 250,000 people live in this beautiful, sun-soaked metropolis of Orlando, yet an incredible 51 million flock to its streets and beaches every year. No small percentage of that figure stems from international tourists, either. Nearly 4 million tourists from outside the U.S. continue to fly to Orlando each year.

The Theme Park Capital of the World is home to the legendary Walt Disney World, as well as Universal Studios and Seaworld. Orlando s fun factor is off the charts for both children and adults and will forever be a hotspot for American and non-American vacationers! Because it s so popular, search for and book cheap flights to Orlando early with Skyscanner.

Flights to Orlando Orlando International Airport is the 13th busiest in the United States and is responsible for transporting a majority of the gamma world-city s visitors. The next closet airport and one that receives far less traffic is Orlando Sanford, though the bulk of the city s domestic and international flights fly into its larger counterpart.

The majority of national airlines have routes to Orlando, so when using Skyscanner to compare airfare rates, Delta, Southwest, United, American Airlines, US Airways, jetBlue, airTran, and Virgin America will all be considered in your search. International flights to Orlando are serviced by many: Icelandair, Sunwing Airlines, Copa, Volaris, Bahamasair, and Aeroflot.

What Should You Do in Orlando?

Aside from the noteworthy sights already mentioned (i.e. Disney World, Universal Studios, Seaworld), O-Town has a plethora of attractions for tourists of all ages. Discovery Cove is a nature/animal park that offers dolphin swimming, sting ray encounters, and a massive aviary.

Visitors also have the option to go snorkeling, with all gear provided by the park. This is the place to be if you love animals and want to have a once in a lifetime experience with Mother Nature. Disney is known for showcasing stellar live performances, and Fantasmic and La Nouba- Cirque du Soleil are a testament to this. Purchase your tickets well in advance, as they tend to sell out quite early!

Advice for Tourists Visiting Orlando

The best way to get great deals and huge savings on admission to Orlando s many theme parks is to buy early. Large groups can potentially pocket hundreds! If you are staying in the city for longer than a week, it will pay to invest in a rental car. Orlando has dozens of rental agencies, so call ahead of time for your reservation. Your date with Mickey Mouse and friends is just within reach, so book cheap flights to Orlando, find a hotel, or rent a car using Skyscanner s intellisearch!

Cheap Flights to Las Vegas, NV – Find Deals on Flights

Cheap Flights to Las Vegas, NV

Best Time to Fly to Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a year-round destination and travelers can always find airfare deals on Las Vegas flights. However, there are particular times of the year when Las Vegas is at its peak and when travelers can best the Las Vegas flight and hotel deals.

Fall and winter are peak seasons in Las Vegas and when most people book Las Vegas flights. New Year’s celebrations are world-renowned so if you’re planning to party in Las Vegas for New Year’s it’s best to book flights and hotels in advance. Las Vegas is also a big business conference and expo site. If you’re planning a Las Vegas vacation you’ll want to check ahead and see if any conferences are taking place when you plan your Las Vegas trip. Hotels and airline tickets can be more expensive if there is an international conference taking place.

Summer in the desert is hot and the Las Vegas Strip is no exception. Thankfully, the hotels and casinos are air-conditioned so Las Vegas tourists can seek relief from the desert heat. If you plan to travel to Las Vegas in the summertime, bring light clothes and plenty of sunscreen. It’s hot and humid, but summer is also the best time to find tickets to Las Vegas and discounted Las Vegas hotel and resort rates.

Why you should take a flight to Las Vegas

Blackjack tables, showgirls, neon lights and Elvis imitators — you can find it all when you book a flight to Las Vegas. Back in the day, Las Vegas served as the playground to everyone from Marilyn Monroe to the Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. It’s where Elvis Presley first sang Viva Las Vegas in 1969, and where couples in love eloped and pressed their luck at the blackjack tables. Book an airline ticket to Las Vegas to see it all.

Vegas vacations start on the ride to Las Vegas. Upon booking Las Vegas flights, the odds are already in favor of having a good time. The plane lands at McCarran International Airport, where visitors are greeted by bright lights and the loud change-making noise of the slot machines – an inviting entrance into Sin City.

But when you step off your plane, you’ll see more than just gaming. The city boasts more churches per capita than any other city in America, which is no surprise since many Las Vegas flights are booked with the idea of matrimony in mind. Cheap plane tickets to Las Vegas can be found year-round, leaving tourists plenty of money to spend on hotels and entertainment in the city. There are more than 100 hotels in Las Vegas. On the Las Vegas Strip, the most popular hotels include the Mirage, the Venetian, the Bellagio, the Hard Rock, the Sahara, Paris Las Vegas, Caesars Palace, The MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay. Budget-conscience travelers can find flights to Las Vegas and cheap hotels off the Strip, including the Green Valley Ranch and Fairfield Desert Resort, leaving a little extra room in the checkbook for loving the Las Vegas scene.

While the days of Elvis and Frank have ended, the Las Vegas legacy lives on. Today, Las Vegas flights open the gates to Broadway shows and Grammy-award winning entertainers. Luxury retail stores open daily along the Las Vegas Strip, and adults craving a lifestyle of decadence indulge in five-star restaurants and midnight buffets on the casino floor. Las Vegas has, and always will be, the heartbeat of the desert.

What happens here stays here, so once you board your return Las Vegas flight, you’re off the hook.

Vegas is hopping 52 weeks a year, but certain Las Vegas events bring out the VIPs in full force. Jet-setters book Las Vegas flights to celebrate in style during holiday weekends, especially New Year’s Eve. Gamblers and sports fans find cheap Las Vegas airfare for the Super Bowl, Kentucky Derby and March Madness. Keep your eyes out during spring and summer weekends, when Las Vegas tickets are filled with bachelor and bachelorette parties starting their celebrations even before the plane touches down.

Las Vegas climate

No matter when you fly to the desert, it’s going to be hot, and Las Vegas is no exception. Summers in Las Vegas are blistering, but if you can handle the heat you’ll likely find tickets to Las Vegas abundant during the summer months. The temperature reaches over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, but the air is dry so the humidity is low. Winter is a bit cooler with temperatures maxing out around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Rarely does Las Vegas see intense rain, but showers do occur.

Just the Flight’s Guide to Manila

Manila is an often-overlooked destination, both by travel writers and travel agents, but there is much to see and do in this cosmopolitan capital of the Philippines. The city is packed with people. It has a myriad of adventures on offer, yet with a laid-back, jovial and exciting atmosphere. It is a teeming metropolis with a rich history that has much to offer to visitors. From the small villages and rice fields to imposing buildings, Manila has it all.

The history of Manila is rich and deep. It was, in fact, the capital of the Spanish East Indies for more than 300 years. The previous city centre, Intramuros, was founded in 1571 by the Spanish. Aside from its age, Manila is also known as the Christian capital of Asia. It is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the region, thanks to its bustling population of almost two million people. Perhaps it is because of the Spanish influence that many people who visit Manila feel that they are in a Latin American city, rather than an Asian one.

In order to enjoy Manila, it will first help to understand what the city actually is – namely, a collection of small towns with no well-defined centre. Prior to World War II, the walled Intramuros area was considered to be the city centre, but it was wiped-out during the conflict. Much of the destruction from the war has never been rebuilt, but the raw energy of Manila is apparent. Visitors arriving on flights to Manila often find themselves exploring the bones of the city, shopping in the unique markets, and getting a genuine feel for what the Philippines is really like. What you really have to understand is that Manila is truly the sum of its parts – you cannot visit for a day and say you ve been to Manila.

Do not let the mention of the destruction in World War II dissuade you from visiting Manila. Many parts of the city are lively and exciting. One of the most interesting and modern parts of Manila is Makati, which is the commercial capital of the country. Visitors can enjoy entire days spent eating, shopping and relaxing.

Though Manila is the main destination for people visiting the Philippines, it is actually one of 17 cities in a municipality that makes up the region known as Metro Manila. This is also referred to as the National Capital Region (NCR) of the Philippines. The entire area is located on the southern part of the island of Luzon, and lies between the inland lake of Laguna de Bay and Manila Bay. The parts of Manila worth visiting lie at the confluence of the Pasig River and Manila Bay.

There are two distinct seasons in the Philippines – wet and dry – within the country s tropical climate. The peak holiday season in Manila is during the dry season, which lasts from November to February. The tropical temperatures are a little cooler during this period, but the flights to Manila may be a little pricier than at other times of year. Though you may find cheaper flights to Manila during the wet season, from May to October, the region is subject to tropical storms and typhoons.

During your stay in Manila, do not miss spending a day at the famous Manila Bay, known for its beautiful sunsets. The combination of humidity and a cloudy atmosphere results in a natural light show that is incomparable with almost any other destination on earth. The sunset allows for an awesome backdrop to the sprawling city. The best views are along Rizal Park, Roxas Boulevard, or from any cruise ship docked in the bay itself.

There are many landmarks to be seen in and around Manila as well. For a taste of history, be sure to take in the Bonifacio Shrine, dedicated to Andres Bonifacio, a Filipino freedom-fighter against the Spanish. Another shrine worth visiting is the Mabini Shrine, which is Apolinario Mabini s former home. He was a lawyer and fought for the country s independence. During the American occupation, the house became a centre of intellectualism.

In addition to being a spectacular city, Manila offers plenty of good eating, adventures and culture. Packed with museums, landmarks and history, you would be crazy not to visit the capital region of the Philippines. There are also plenty of companies and tour guides available to show you around. So, what are you waiting for? Just make sure you travel during the dry season and find a flight to Manila today.

Cheap Flights to Perth

Perth overview

When is the best time to fly to Perth?

Perth is Western Australia’s capital and its largest city. Famous for its big open spaces, dominant skyscrapers, wine-growing and laid-back lifestyle, Perth offers a unique blend of urban and natural landscapes. Most travellers arrive on cheap flights to Perth during the summer holidays for the various events and festivals taking place. The annual Perth Festival and Swan Valley midsummer feast are just two of the popular summer events. Prices for flight tickets rise in the summer months, which can be hot but the perfect time to hit the stunning white sand beaches for a dip and watersports, or cool off in the shady national parks that border the city. Another peak holiday time is during the July school holidays, when cheap flights to Perth are harder to find.

Perth experiences nearly year round sunshine, the winters are mild with average daily temps around 15C. The majority of the rainfall occurs in the winter months with showers, gale force winds and thunderstorms prevalent. May and June are the heaviest rainfall months, so pack wet weather gear if arriving on flights to Perth during this period.

When is the best time to book a flight to Perth?

The shoulder seasons of autumn and spring are generally less busy and a nice time to visit Perth if you want to avoid the hot summer weather. Autumn though still warm enough for sailing and watersports, doesn’t have the intense heat which in February can be 40C or higher. Spring might still have the odd rain shower but the landscape blooms with wildflowers. The cheapest flights to Perth are in March, and the most expensive are in January.
