Best Travel Websites and Apps
Plan Your Trip: Kayak
Click Factor: Kayak’s website has become a one-stop shop for everything travel. You can use it to search for airfares and hotel rates, get fare alerts and map real-time deals, and—our new favorite function—manage itineraries with My Trips (just forward flight, hotel, and other travel confirmations to Kayak and they’ll load onto a customized online itinerary). The apps let you search and book on the fly, access information on airports and airline fees, and receive price and fare tracker alerts.
T+L Tip: If your travel plans are flexible, try the Buzz feature on the app, which gives you the best fares for a particular month on a specific route.
