The irony behind taking a "vacation" is the lingering question that continually abounds as this so-called getaway gets a little dicey: When exactly does the vacation start?
From packing to planning to picking a flight or hotel, taking a trip seems more like a work than a respite from work but alas the cavalry has arrived in the form of technology for traveling that makes the hectic pre-vacation routine a little less vexing.
One aspect of traveling that technology has certainly nipped is the notion of booking a flight or hotel and renting a car. With so many options out there, which web site or app gives you the best option for traveling?
This crowded field is filled with winners but a few tweaks here and there make a few of them stand just a bit taller. The Expedia app may be the most complete, with the hotels and flights at your fingertips along with reviews of the hotels and the ability to find last-minute deals that could significantly decrease the cost of your trip -- no doubt an important aspect of anyone planning a vacation. Kayak is a close second to Expedia and offers the same, comparable services as far as best-pricing and a tremendously simple booking experience.
Hipmunk (yes, that's a real company) Hotel & Flight Search can't do a lot of things like book flights but for those interested in alternative accommodations, they're your best bet. They include not only four-star hotels but persons who rent their houses for out-of-towners to stay in.
