www.nwa.com/ – Not the old school rap group, but Northwest Airlines.
http://www.seatguru.com/ Not only does this site help you find flights and hotels, but it also provides very detailed information about the seats on the plane.
http://www.statravel.com/ – If you’re a student, this site has some deals for trips to Europe.
http://www.seatgeek.com – This site is cool. It allows you to search for trips by the concert or sporting event you want to attend.
http://www.dohop.com/ – vacation rentals.
http://www.raveable.com/ – reviews.
http://www.wegoround.com/ – vacation rentals.
http://www.tvtrip.com/ – Hotel video guide.
http://www.travelpost.com/ – hotel reviews.
http://www.trivago.co.uk/ – hotel reviews in Europe.
http://www.couchsurfing.org/index.html – Hospitality exchange. For the truly adventurous. 🙂 Maybe I’ll try this someday.
www.urbanspoon.com/ -If you have an i-phone, you need to download this app from iTunes. You can still get good information on this site on your PC, but it’s not as fun. Check out the demo for the app here.
http://www.where.com/– Helps you find restaurants and other things.
http://www.zagat.com/-Restaurant reviews. Better to look at this one over the Internet. They have a phone app, but it is pricey. If you want a phone app, go with UrbanSpoon for the iPhone, it’s free.
http://www.citysearch.com/– Find restaurants and events nearby where you’re staying.
http://www.luggagelimits.com/ A site that’ll tell you how much luggage you can take with you before they’ll start charging you for it.
http://citytours.googlelabs.com/ – This site is only in beta, but what a cool site to help you plan your trip.
http://www.tripadvisor.com/ – I always go to this site before booking a trip. It usually has good reviews and good advice from a large community.
http://www.x-rates.com/ – Even though I would have named this site a different name for obvious reasons, it has information on the exchange rates for your money.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collection/travel – Firefox add-ons for travelers.
http://www.waze.com/homepage/ – traffic info
http://www.nationofgo.com/ – An interactive website that gives you info on road trips as well as different trails.
http://trapster.com/ – A way to avoid running into your friendly local law enforcement and incurring extra “fees”.
http://riskyroads.org/ – Watch out for the dangerous roads while traveling.
http://gis5.com/pois_along_route/gm_pois_along_route.php – This is supposed to be a site to help you discover points of interest. However, all it showed me was where all of the fast food restaraunts were along the way. At least I now know where all of the In-N-Out burger joints are from SLC to California.
http://www.bikely.com/ – Bike trails
I hope this is helpful. Do you know of other good websites that you’ve used and have been helpful when planning your trips? Share them in the comments.
