Chapter 23. Online Travel > Booking Reservations Online

Booking Reservations Online

The most popular online activity for armchair travelers is to book all the reservations for their trip—plane tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars, and more. Reservations are available at several large general travel sites, at specific industry Web sites, and at the individual companies’ Web sites. To book reservations, all you need to know is where you’re going and when—and whether you have a high-enough credit limit on your charge cards.

Whichever type of site you choose to use, you’ll have to enter the same key information before you search for and book your reservations. You’ll need to enter when you’re traveling (your departure and return dates), how many people are traveling, how much you want to pay (full fare or discount fare), what kind of arrangements and accommodations you want, and any special considerations you have for your trip. Armed with this information, the site will search for the flights (and rooms and cars) that best match your requirements. From there, finalizing your arrangements is as simple as clicking a few buttons and providing your credit card number.
