Sites that save you cash when traveling.

I am looking to compile a list of great websites that help save people like you and I some cash when traveling. While I love my Fodor's, I am looking for sites that are constantly hunting down good deals.

Here are two that I can contribute to this discussion right off the bat:

Kayak.com

AirFareWatchdog.com

What else is out there and also what you you think of the sites I mentioned. I love the blogs on AirfareWatchdog.com.

I like both of the sites you mentioned. Also add SmarterTravel.com to that list.

Priceline, provided that you completely understtd the rules and strategies can be great, particularly with hotels. I've never used it for airfare because I'm generally not that flexible there.

I just want to add, that Priceline "Name your own price" is the way to go. Their published rates are nothing special.

I agree with Priceline.com

I have "bid" on many hotels and received more than half off at times. I even used it for flights (when flexible) to Chicago, Zurich and Rome.

Ah nice...never used Quikbook.com

Will have to check it out.

I agree with Maggie, that AirFare site's blog is updated frequently throughout the day with breaking news in the airline industry and airfare sales. Plus you can leave comments. Woo hoo!

For info on bid amounts for Priceline name your own price. I like using it for hotels.
