Easy Trip Planning – Find The Best Deals

If you travel, or are planning a vacation, finding the best airfare and/or hotel deals can take lots of work. You may check with your favorite airline, or decide to use Orbitz, Travelocity, Cheap Flights, or another travel site.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a free, one stop shopping site, for trips and vacations?

A search engine, for travelers?

A search engine that would provide comparisons between airlines, hotels, car rentals, cruises, and/or vacation packages?

Well, now there is.

Actually there are two.

1) Kayak.com
2) Sidestep.com

Both of this sites offer that one stop shopping (searching multiple sites) you may be looking for.

All you do is, enter your trip information, and these sites do the rest of the work for you.

They scan hundreds of sites, and give you dozens of results to choose from.

They both offer side by side comparisons, and provide a link to the specified site.

Keep in mind, these sites are not “resellers”, or online “travel agencies”.

I checked out both sites.

I input the same flight information into both sites, and both basically gave me the same results.

Whether you use one or the other, becomes a personal preference.

Check out both, and add them to your “favorites”.

In the future, when you are planning a trip, you are just one click away from all of the best deals and travel information you will need.

    Barbara – Kayak is great but I’ve never tried Sidestep before. I will give it a go though. Another one that seems to give good flight prices is Orbitz.

    The next trip I plan, I’m going to try both Kayak and Sidestep, and see if I can save a few bucks.

    I like the fact that they so all of the searching for you, so you don’t have to be jumping between many websites trying to find the best deal…sure is a time saver.
