General Travel Resources

Best Fares.com
Looking for great deals? Look no farther. Every day, Tom Parson's brings you great deals on travel of all varieties. While you can subscribe to the magazine to gain access to extra members only deals, the vast majority of this site is free, free, free. A great new feature is their quick fare finder. Pop in your departure city and destination, and voila - great fares!

Concierge.com
The online home of Conde Nast Traveler has information for the budget traveler, the spare-no-expense traveler, and everyone in-between. There are deals are listed daily and lots of contests to win great travel vacations. Their travel ideas are interesting, and can appeal to the luxury minded traveler as well as the more,ah, adventurous types. Especially nice are the articles, articles, articles - more than three years of excellent travel writing, all available full-text.

Expedia
One of the biggest names in online travel is still one of the best. Flight and fare information, hotels and condos, car rentals, vacation packages, cruises, city guides, maps and bargains - this site has it all. It's one stop shopping for everything travel.

Fodors.com
Expedia's guide information (see above) comes directly from Fodor's. If that isn't enough of a recommendation, you should also check out the rants and raves. Lots of opinions on restaurants and hotels. Fodor's rates them, and everyone else rates them too.

Frommers.com
One of the most comprehensive travel sites on the web. Lots of information on places to stay, eat and play, but what really makes this site fantastic is the travel newsletter. Used to be that every day a new newsletter came out at this site. Now, I find they've moved their daily updates to the MSNBC Frommer's website.

Yahoo Travel
The familiar Yahoo interface makes this site fast and easy to use. The main destination information is from Lonely Planet, but links to the Yahoo index lead one to other web resources. A nice feature allows you to search for vacation information by activity, from archaeology to wine tours.
