Where I go first to find travel deals (to anywhere)
Travelzoo – becoming a member is free. And you get updates on great new deals exclusive only to Travelzoo in your e-mail in box.
AirBnB – the ultimate resource for affordable accommodation just a bout anywhere, with a personal flair.
Booking.com – hotel, apartments and more and great discounted rates.
Windmu – much like AirBnbB, but a bit more upsale, and not as many choices. Still cheaper than most hotel rooms.
