Love Finding Flights Here: I have used orbitz.com for the last five years to find cheap fares on flights. I was able to search deals, flexible dates, and choose my seat. I always received the lowest prices on the days and times that I wanted to fly. Their options were great. Even their customer service representatives were outstanding and helped me once to sort out some of my own traveling problems. I have been able to find flights, hotels, cruises, and car rentals all in one easy, cheap location.
Orbitz Travel Planning Made Easy: I was prepared not to like this site since many travel sites are giant advertisements without much useful information. Not Orbitz, they provide detailed travel adn pricing information for hotels, car rentals, vacation packages and airline flight. I particularly like the fact they this site displays the actual airline, flight number and pricing details easily so comparisons can be made between different airlines and whether there are connections that have to be made. Also they have an easy to read map to locate airports across the country and see what weather conditions are like and if there are any security back-ups, very helpful in determining how much time a traveler will need to catch a flight. Only downside is the activities listed at some destinations are not really customized, but instead offer things like magazine subscriptions that can be found anywhere. Overall, I impressed with the site and will use it more often for my travel plans.
Easy, Cheap, Convenient Travel Options - www.orbitz.com: This is a great site for travelers because of the many flexible options it offers. Viewers can explore different travel options to get to their destination or get ideas for destinations they might want to visit. One of the unique features of this site is that it not only offers various options to get to destinations, but it also allows viewers to select activities that interest them so they can plan vacations around their interests. Another option that I have not seen on other travel sites is the ability to purchase tickets for "live events." I normally check out several sites prior to scheduling trips and I found this site to be one of the fastest in terms of processing various travel options. The one thing I did not like about the site is that it does not offer the option of the number lay-overs I am willing to accept, it only offers the option of "no layovers." Although I have used this site in the past, to get the least expensive and most convenient travel options, I also check out at least two others (i.e. Kayak, Travelocity, etc.) to insure I get the best deal.
