So what are these travel

So what are these travel links at the bottom of the page and better yet who cares?

For right now, let me call your attention to (2):

Biddingfortravel.com: Checking out this site may be the most important travel tip I can give you. Priceline can be a great resource for saving money on travel, but it’s often too much of a hassle to be useful. Take hotels: not only don’t you know how low Priceline will go, you have no idea where Priceline will put you (as long as it’s within the geographic area promised). What if you knew in advance what hotel you were going to get? What if you knew that you didn’t have only one chance to bid, but that if your bid was rejected you could continue bidding without choosing different areas or different quality levels? This website does just that. With the help of biddingfortravel.com, I got the Sheraton NY Hotel and Towers on Times Sqaure for $87, the Airport Hilton in Phoenix for $36, and the Marriott Boca Raton for $55 — just to name a few.

Sidestep.com: One of the keys to getting good deals on airfare and hotels is checking around — alot. Often Orbitz and Expedia don’t have the best deal. Sometimes individual hotel and airline sites offer better bargains. But which ones? And who has time to check them all out? Installing the simple software available at this website will do the work for you. When you go to a website to check travel prices, Sidestep knows it — grabs the information from your search, submits it to all of the airline and hotel sites, and displays all of the available deals on the lefthand side of your screen.
