Sound Money Tips
has some helpful posts about using resources on the web to save money on travel costs. The posts I found most helpful include:
I would also add the following sites:
- SmarterTravel consolidates the major airlines' weekend escape deals. (I've used these to pay as little as $39 each way for a flight.) They also consolidate the airlines' frequent flyer bonuses. Anyone who travels frequently should sign up for their free email newsletters.
- Because I frequently travel to China, I need information on flight, train, and hotel prices. FlyChina is the best search engine for domestic flights and train schedules and prices. SinoHotelGuide can usually save me 50% or more on hotels.
