Hey, everyone!

What are all of you using to find deals on flights, car rentals, hotel, etc?

The only one I'm really familiar with is Travelocity... :tongue:

Replied by on topic There are tons of discount
There are tons of discount places. Travelocity, priceline, hotwire, orbitz, expedia, even yahoo has some pretty good fairs occassionally. Personally, I have had the best luck with orbitz in the past. Priceline doesn't allow you to pick the time of your flights, but you would probably get the best price from them. If you don't care about making pre-interview dinners, then priceline would be a good bet. If not, I would stick with the other ones that allow you to set the itinerary. Priceline is good for hotels though. You can cut your price in half, or thirds for most hotels.

Also check www.hotwire.com cause it lets you know a certain price without "bidding" or whatever on it like priceline. You still don't know your time in/out, but at least it gives you a minimum to judge against. It also lets you deselect redeye flights 9]www.orthogate.org/media/kunena/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

I just was able to get a 4-star hotel (Hyatt Regency) in Indianapolis for $42 on priceline. I've never used that service before but what a great deal...hopefully i'll have time to use the complimentary spa and pool before the interview to get relaxed...
