This spring, Peter and Gayle King held a Google+ hangout to discuss their favorite websites (click here to join Peter’s circle). The conversation grew and now Peter and Gayle join the whole team at CBS This Morning to share a few new online travel tools.
Watch as Peter and Erica debate the free vs. the pro-editions of the popular app TripIt. See why DogVacay is becoming a popular resource for pet owners. Find out how AirBnB is becoming the go-to resource, not just for budget travelers but for those looking for a creative change from the standard hotel room–think treehouses, castles and more. And if you really want to see what your hotel looks like, Peter recommends the photo fakeouts reports on Oyster.
Peter also focuses on voluntourism and PackforaPurpose.org invites travelers to pack necessary supplies for specific projects in their destination. Just 5 pounds in your luggage can equal 400 pencils or five soccer balls and a pump to be donated to a school or orphanage.
Follow along at the team from CBS This Morning examine these sites and their features:
