7 New Airline Websites We Love

Cheaper fares and trip planning tools - these sites have it all

Tired of searching far and wide for the best deals and coming up empty handed? Frustrated with the state of Security Woesaffairs on the biggy booking engines. Have any of them had an original offer in the past 5 years?

Click on over to our new favorite airline sites and fulfill your travel needs - and desires!

OrbitzTLC: A veteran in the travel industry, Orbitz wows us with real-time updates from fellow travelers who text-message security line-ups, cab queues and traffic jams from their cell phones. The color-coded map lets you zero in quickly on arrival and departure details.

ExpertFlyer: Flight is cancelled and already behind the 8-ball with your boss? Get the real-time scoop on more than 100 carriers that may rescue your schedule and your job. (Basic subscription: $4.99/month)

Yapta: Keep track of flare fluctuations before and after booking your flight. If you booked directly with the airline (often the cheapest way to book) you may be eligible for refund of cash and/or credits.

Tripology: An airline matchmaker service that pairs your interests, wants and needs with a travel agent picked from a pool of more than 6,000 global experts. Fill out the questionnaire and get personalized service from a real person who can answer your questions and deliver the kind of travel you're looking for.

Tripit: Organize everything from flight and dinner reservations at OpenTable to adding in your trip-specific details like SeatGuru suggestions, weather reports and Google Maps. You email your itinerary and the information is then loaded onto a password-protected website for simple, paperless organization.

Mommondo: When price is more important than a direct flight, this Denmark-based aggregator quickly combs through 450 sites (including major booking engines, no-frills airlines and national carriers) to get you the best price.

MileMaven: Max out your airmiles by searching limited-time offers specifically for those bonus miles. Search through thousands of carriers, routes, airlines, cities or frequent flyer programs.

Might I add WikiAir to your list of Awesome Airline Websites? Check it out!

Woe, thanks for those websites. There only a few I have not heard of before but they were very good and of excellent quality. I wish I had known about some of these websites last year when flying was just so horrible and took too much time.

I have never heard of any of these sites, although I've heard of orbitz in passing. Thanks for the list!

That is an interesting list, I think you have a couple I have not tried. I just learned about Mommondo when I interviewed Pauline Frommer recently.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
  • On How to Choose a Cruise Ship Cabin on Your Next Cruise, Tinu said "Thank you for this post! I was dragging my feet about going on a cruise. Now that I know there's such a thing as a balcony cabin, I can't wait to book a trip!"
