Alan Cohen at Law Technology News has come up with a fantastic list of helpful tools, programs and websites for making travel a little bit smoother. Some of the highlights:
Raveable.com- A hotel review aggregator that takes “the common underlying opinions found in millions of individual hotel reviews across the internet… from well known sites such as TripAdvisor, Expedia, Travelocity, and MyTravelGuide while others come from lesser known sites such as individual travel bloggers.” A great site for cutting the chaff in user reviews and keeping the important details.
GoMiles.com– A website dedicated to helping you manage all the travel loyalty programs that you carry around in your wallet. The website carries an impressive amount of programs- Airline, Hotel, Car Rental, even American Express Rewards and Amtrak Guest Rewards. You may not be a “road warrior”, but there’s a good chance you have points just sitting in one or two of these programs. Check it out and see what you find- its free to use.
Tripit.com– Like GoMiles, Tripit deals with account management. According to their website TripIt helps you “organize trip details into one master online itinerary — even if arrangements are booked at multiple travel sites, automatically include maps, directions and weather in their master itinerary, and safely access travel plans online, share them, check-in for flights, or print an itinerary.” It could be an enormous time saver for your next trip.
OneBag.com– We could all pack more efficiently and OneBag is a great reference site that helps you do so. There is plenty of advice in how to pack as light as possible that one can adhere to in most cases.
We thank Alan and the LTN Team for putting this together and hope that you find these and the rest of tips as helpful as we did.
