The holidays are around the corner and that means prime travel time for many families. We booked our flight to Grandma's house in September, but my husband and I are still looking for cheap flights. In fact, we are Kayak addicts.
Kayak is a site that lets you find flights deals (along with low cost rental car and hotels) and has tools to make the search fun. It's our favorite way to price compare and create itineraries. There's a tool called "Explore" that shows you on a map the prices for the world's top destinations from your city.
There's something so promising about looking at that map and seeing the possibilities. Portland to Istanbul or Prague or Sydney - we like to know what the airfare would cost whether we plan on going there or not. If there's a destination we had not considered but the price is right, we start plotting our next vacation.
Do you have a favorite site for travel planning?
