Travel websites that allow us to compare fares from across the board and suggest when is the best time to buy are a budget traveler's best friend. Cost is on everyone's mind when it comes to travel, and there is more to getting the most bang for your buck than getting the cheapest possible air fare. Here are three websites to help you feel more satisfied with your travel experience.
- Gross, but helpful: Bedbugregistry.com. TeamSugar member said8me uses this site to check out hotels before she books them. The site lists hotels that have reports of bed bugs, so there's no need to waste your money on a hotel that could be infested.

- Make your flight as pleasant as possible: Seatguru.com. The site has information about which seats on your flight are "superior and substandard." With notes on which seats have limited recline, reduced legroom, mis-aligned windows, I found myself wishing I'd checked this site after sitting in a window seat with no window!
- Avoid sleeping in the airport: Flightstats.com. Not all airlines are created equally, especially in terms of flight delays. This site shows airlines' performance ratings to warn you of the likelihood of a delay.
