Competition Among Budget Travel Sites Saves You Money

The announcement that Orbitz will waive fees on flights booked through May is great news for travelers looking to cut costs on travel this Spring. However, Orbitz isn't the only budget travel site using this type of promotion to get your business; the no-booking-fee promo mirrors the one available on Expedia.

The budget travel wars don't stop there. Priceline came out strong last month when it rolled out its price guarantee promotion. If you book through Priceline before June 1 and discover the price for your flight or vacation package has dropped, the site will give you back the difference between what you paid and the lower price. Taking the time to search for the best travel deals has always been worth it, and it seems that's true now more than ever.

Do not go for deals automatically generated by tools. Look at sites that offer hand-picked deals for your next travel vacation. http://www.shopaservice.com/deals/, http://www.travelzoo.com/Index.aspx
