  • usually when we go on vacation it's always last minute always lol so I just google hotels in the area we are going and call around to check the prices and go from there,
    I tried the travelocity or whatever and it didn't work for me it was still to expensive and not in the area I wanted it to be

  • Expedia to check prices; book airlines through the airline website if the same or cheaper; book hotels through Priceline.

  • Travel agent. They know all the Trix and &deals.

  • I usually do everything. A lot of times I'll buy the tickets on Travelocity but otherwise I do everything else. I did use a travel agent when we went to Italy and when we went on our honeymoon to St. Lucia.

  • I've always gone through AAA since they get a discount some places and pass it on to me. Although now they charge a fee for booking. And last time I used them, I had asked for a non-stop flight, and they gave me one that stopped, so I looked online and found a perfectly reasonable non-stop that they then changed to- which made me feel a bit like why am I paying you to do this if I find a better flight? I am talking Disneyworld and other flying trips. It's nice to have AAA just make all the reservations. When we take car trips I study the hotels and make the arrangements myself.
