Good places to find travel information online include Fodor's, TripAdvisor, Travelocity and MapQuest. Fodor's has a long history of printing trip guidebooks. Its website includes some of the information from those books as well as information from other travelers to help users plan their vacation. It provides information on destinations, cruises and trip ideas.
TripAdvisor claims to be the world's largest travel website, with more than 225 million travel reviews as of 2015. While it is not a booking agent, it partners with booking agents so that travelers can read reviews and reserve hotel rooms, flights and vacation rentals on the same site. TripAdvisor also offers reviews of restaurants.
Travelocity is a booking agent for hotels, rental cars, flights, cruises and vacation packages. It offers a price guarantee if customers find a lower price within 24 hours of booking a reservation. It charges no cancellation fee for changes that travelers make up to three days before the booking. If a hotel does not match the published description, the company promises to find comparable lodging.
MapQuest provides travel information for driving trips. It offers maps and turn-by-turn directions for drivers. It also provides exit information, including local hotels and restaurants, to help plan an automobile vacation. When planning their trips, drivers can enjoy intermediate destinations along the way.
