23 Ways to Save on Travel

By on

Kiplinger.com has published a list of the 23 Best Travel Sites to Save You Money, including sites that save on airfare, hotels, vacations, and rental cars, among other resources.

Here are the sites from the top of each category…

Airfare: Kayak.com scours hundreds of online sources for the cheapest fare available. The more flexible you are on time and destination, the better your chances of finding a great deal. Search for dates up to three days before and after your ideal travel dates, within a selected month, or on upcoming weekends.

Lodging: Hotels.com lets you search just one site for accommodations at more than 150,000 properties. You can find particularly good last-minute deals, which are updated daily. But even advance-travel planners can score big bargains with the site’s seasonal sales, destination-specific deals, and other special offers.

Vacation packages: At CruiseCompete.com, more than 300 travel agents vie to give you the lowest prices for dates, ports, and ships you specify, whether you’re booking well in advance or at the eleventh hour. You provide an e-mail address and they send you their best offers. Plus, the site has live agents available to guide you through the process through a live chat or by phone.

Car Rentals: Hotwire.com often offers the best published deals on cars by collecting rates from its eight rental car company partners, including Avis, Budget, and Enterprise.

Comments & discussion

We welcome your opinions, but let’s keep it civil. Like many businesses, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. In our case, that means those who communicate by name-calling, racism, using words designed to hurt others or generally acting like an uninformed bully. Also, comments that include links to email addresses or commercial websites typically aren't posted. This isn't a place to advertise your business.
