Experience Finder – Travel Guide

19 Jan

The other day I was booking a trip and I stumbled upon this cool little application on Travelocity called Experience Finder. I would describe this online gadget as an interactive travel guide to the most popular global destinations.

First you choose your destination, then you choose from most the popular activities to experience in that area. You can further narrow down what you want to do by genre, like romance or family. I also like that you can see an interactive map and a proximity of your activities that are closest to your hotel.

Go up stream with Kayak

20 Jan

The website says, “Kayak is a travel search engine. We search hundreds of travel sites from all over the world, provide the information in an easy-to-use display and send customers directly to the source to make their purchase.”

If you are looking for the right flight, hotel, cruise, or rental car, then look no further than Kayak. Once you make your choice, Kayak will link you to the travel sites to make your purchase. From what I can see, the website gets info from Orbitz, Travelocity and Priceline. You can also sign-up for alerts when prices or specials occur.

1. Search 140+ travel sites at once
2. Compare results from all sites together
3. Buy direct from airlines or agencies
4. Kayak is free!

Flight Arrival

4 Jun

There are many websites that offer you the ability to compare and purchase airline tickets such as Expedia and Orbitz. However once you get your flight plan, in order to verify if the schedule is running on time, you need to check multiple websites. I have traditionally just ended up calling the airline and confirming the schedule. However, what if you are busy traveler and just don’t have the time to drill down deep into a website to find the information. Now with Flight Arrival you can find the most up-to-date information on flight arrivals, departures, delays, and schedule changes. Now the website just launched a new featured called airport status that displays general delays and current weather at 71 major US airports!

If you want to check an arrival or departure, all you do is follow three easy steps. First choose an Airline, then type in the flight number and finally select the date of the flight. The only drawback of the website is you are immediately hit with a large pop-up ad on the homepage and then as you move through the website you are hit with these ads repeatedly.

Has anyone tried Flight Arrival or are there any others worth looking at?
