Thanks to technology, you have both options at your fingertips.
You may be familiar with Travelzoo as a travel booking site.
They’ve now got a new travel app that’s loaded with on-the-ground information.
Once you get off the plane, you can find last-minute deals for activities, events, restaurants, and hotels based on your location.
Yonderbound is a new site that was created by a group of travel executives.
They not only know the challenges of travel planning, they’ve lived them.
So, the site has nearly half a million hotel deals.
It’s also got a tool where you can gather information, wish lists, and other plans to share with friends or travel companions before booking.
Plus, don’t forget a site called Tingo, which has been around for a couple of years.
If you book through them, and the hotel price drops later, they’ll automatically refund you the difference.
They’re owned by the same guys as AirfareWatchdog.com, which tracks great, last-minute flight deals, so you can plan your entire trip in one central place.
