Travelandleisure.com Best Websites for Travel
During the past year, we’ve scoured travel websites looking for the best of the bunch, from tried-and-true classics to brand-new standouts that are revolutionizing the way we plan and take our trips.
The major booking engines—Expedia, Orbitz, and Travelocity—all debuted smart new services in an attempt to stay ahead of the competition in 2010. Expedia’s Unpublished Rates feature, for example, offers discounts of up to 55 percent on more than 25,000 hotels. Orbitz’s new hotel search now incorporates everything from street-view images to amenity filters. And Travelocity now offers users “top secret” listings for rooms that are up to 45 percent off rates, revealing the hotel name upon booking.
And, after more than two decades of DIY online booking, we finally have some serious quality filters: membership-only sites and personalized trip planning are making sure your vacation doesn’t turn into some kind of web-special nightmare. Vacationist.com, a free invitation-only site by Travel + Leisure and LuxuryLink, offers members up to 60 percent off top hotels around the world. You can get travel perks with Founderscard.com for $495, and expert travel advice from Indagare.com starts at $275.
A new crop of websites and mobile-based services offers coupons and daily deals at restaurants, bars, and spas in cities across the country. Scoutmob.com posts a new bargain each day; Wahanda.com features great spa promotions in cities throughout the U.S.; and New York City–based Yipit.com aggregates listings from deal sites in one daily e-mail.
Ever ahead of the digital curve, Google continues to offer great ways to help you travel. Google Translate can decode a menu, phrase, or travel site within seconds, and the new Google Voice gives you a free voice-over-Internet phone number that can receive forwarded calls. You can even make international calls from your smartphone at rock-bottom rates.
Some of the best digital travel innovations aren’t even websites. Today, it’s even possible to create your own Wi-Fi hot spot—no matter where you are—using small devices that connect to mobile networks, such as Clearwire’s superfast 4G iSpot and Virgin Mobile’s prepaid MiFi 2200. As an alternative to exorbitant roaming rates, new affordable rental services like XComGlobal's MiFi Global Hotspot give you unlimited personal Wi-Fi around the world for $17.95 a day.
No matter where you go these days, the web can go with you and make travel easier, more affordable, and definitely more fun.

3 Top Travel Sites for Trip Planning and Reviews
www.frommers.com – Frommer’s is a user-friendly online resource for travel planning. They inform readers about accommodations, restaurants and attractions in various price ranges for destinations all over the world. Frommer’s online forums and travel articles are top notch. The site is easy to navigate and provides a wealth of information in one place. Booking through Frommer’s is not recommended. Research destinations here, and then shop on other sites for the best price.
www.lonelyplanet.com – Lonely Planet has the same excellent quantity and quality of travel information as Frommer’s. They cover a wider range of accommodation budgets though. They supply all the necessary practical information travelers want, where to stay, where to eat and how to get around. Their recommendations are right on the mark. The site includes blogs and forums as well, to add real traveler feedback. They have booking services but they may not be the cheapest option.
www.tripadvisor.com – This is the ultimate review site. Tripadvisor has the largest traveler-generated review database on the web. They have reviews of accommodations, restaurants and tourist attractions. There are many sites that imitate or republish Tripadvisor's reviews. Stick to the original site. If you find a great deal on an all inclusive resort or hotel, check out the reviews on Tripadvisor prior to booking. Keep in mind; some travelers are never happy so look at the average rating. Many hotels have over fifty reviews. The hotels are ranked for travelers who don't have the time to sift through reviews.
Best Travel Website for Backpackers
www.hostels.com – For travelers on a budget, this website is the key to finding hostels worldwide. You may get better deals directly through the hostel; otherwise, booking through hostels.com gets you a good price. They also have a small data base of travel information on the practicalities of various destinations, particularly European cities. Also included is information pertinent to the younger crowd, plus reviews and blogs.
Top Website for Outdoor and Adventure Travel
www.gorp.com – For travelers who love the outdoors and adventure this is a great site jammed packed full of great ideas.

This is very handy when two companions are booking together but paying separately.
