How to Find the Best Travel Deals using Popular Search Engines

openingmonitor.jpgThe Internet has revolutionized the way in which we find airline tickets, hotels and vacation packages. Back in the old days, you had to trudge on over to your local travel agent and wait for them to come up with the prices on your various options. It was time consuming and often you ended getting deals that benefited the travel agents more than they benefited you.

These days anyone with a computer and an Internet connection can be their own travel agent. If you are reading this post, I’m going to bet that you have booked a flight or a hotel or made some other kind of travel arrangement online before. In fact, you might even be an expert.

If you learn their ins and outs, you can save time and money. Here are some thorough guides to how to search the most popular travel sites.

The Sun Shines on San Diego Savings

san-diego-cheap-tickets.jpgLos Angeles might have the star appeal and San Francisco has the impressive sites, but if you are looking for the best city experience in California you need look no further than San Diego.

If you are looking for a holiday in which you can sit around on the beach and soak up the sunshine, San Diego’s idyllic weather and beaches legendary. If you are looking for fun family activities, San Diego’s zoo and attractions are just the ticket. If you are looking for urban, cultured experience, San Diego’s rapidly improving downtown has a vibrant cultural scene. If you are looking for debauchery or to practice speaking another language, San Diego is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Tijuana. If you are looking to combine all of the above with a cruise, San Diego is a popular port of call for west coast cruise ships.

If you are looking to save money on your next vacation and you agree that San Diego is the place to go, you’ll want to look no further than Orbitz, which has a super deal on the often underrated, but rarely disappointing city of San Diego.

Save on Family Friendly Vacations

family-vacation-savings.jpgSome people are of the opinion that once you have children you no longer can travel. Kids cost a lot of money and they are a lot of extra work. Travel just isn’t the same with them in toe, so they say.

They are right, of course. Travel isn’t the same when you have children along. It can, in fact, be even better. There is no better way for a family to bond together than to hit the road for a vacation. Taking yourself out of your normal environment leads to challenging situation and these challenges are what help to bring people together and to form lasting memories. Getting stranded in airports together, staying in crappy hotels, watching dad puke from food poisoning this is the essence of travel and it is something your kids will enjoy (at least when it is over).

That said, finding vacation destinations that will hold the interest of children and parents alike is always the great challenge. Finding destinations that meet these requirements and are affordable requires even more thought. Or at least a pop over to the Orbitz Web site where you can find information on 25 family friendly vacations. If you book one of the vacations right now, you can save $100.

Rocky Mountain High: Cheap Flights to Colorado

john_denver.jpgIn the past six or so years, Colorado’s population has increased by about 10%. What was once a sleepy state with mountains lauded in songs by John Denver is now a bustling place that continues to grow. There is a major reason why so many people are choosing to call the Rocky Mountain State their home. It is freakin’ beautiful. It really is a one of a kind place in so many ways.

The beauty of Colorado is also a major attraction for visitors of course. If you have never been there, you should make plans to visit as soon as possible. If you have been to Colorado, you undoubtedly would enjoy visiting again.

Picture yourself hiking in beautiful countryside. Or strolling the streets of Denver, Boulder or Colorado Springs. Or looking at the cave dwellings in Mesa Verde. Or mountain biking in Durango. Or even rafting down a river. The possibilities are endless. Colorado is a playground waiting for you to come play in it.

Orbitz is the place to go for deals on flights to Colorado this summer. Who knows? After you pay it a visit you might also want to make Colorado your home as well.

You Can Mix Business and Pleasure

biz-travel.jpgAttention business travelers: If you see a thin man in the airport coming up to hug you, please do not be afraid. It is only me and I come in peace. I see you all the time on flights, pouring over spreadsheet documents and cursing your company for not giving you a business class ticket. I can recognize your weary expressions and rumpled suits a mile away. I can relate to how you feel, how you miss your family and how you pray that you won’t miss your next connecting flight.

Business travel is not easy. It can be fun, but that is often the exception to the rule. At the end of the week you might feel like you could use a vacation from your travels. Now you can do both.

Orbitz has a special deal geared for the business travelers out there, but of course open to each and every one of us. If you book a hotel stay of two nights of longer you will save $35 right away, as well as $200 on a vacation package at a later date. You can do your business and then escape to the beach or to some other hideaway where you won’t have to pour over boring spreadsheets and the only hug you’ll receive will be from your significant other.
