Travel Information

Web Search Guides

by Tom Stewart, Associate Editor


One of the toughest parts of planning a trip is finding the best places to stay and see. Sure, you can buy a printed travel guide and follow it to the letter. But a travel guidebook is only as good as its last edition.  On the other hand, most online travel information is updated frequently so your chances of acting on obsolete info are less.

What about travel agents?  If you're booking a cruise, experts agree you should always use a travel agent.  But for many other kinds of travel, you're likely to do better online, especially in terms of cost, by doing some careful online research.  Nowadays, there's so much excellent travel info online that it cannot be equaled by any other source. Moreover, you can quickly access the websites of most service providers, such as airlines, trains, hotels, and car rental companies (either directly or through aggregators like, to make firm reservations immediately -- no waiting around for an agent to get back to you.

Plus, online, you can save some money in a lot of ways, like booking tickets off season, flying from an out-of-the-way airport, or taking advantage of last-minute hotel deals or packages. 

There are far too many good travel websites for me to review them all, but here are my own favorites.  Hope you find a few gems in this list which save you money or make your travel experience a little easier.
