Airfare / Hotels / Car Rental - Assignment Editor



Shopping for airline tickets for the best travel places and destinations from Alamo to international destinations is now different. Thanks to the availability of the web, frequent flyers and travelers now use the web for the BestFares and Budget travel by checking the available websites.

According to one survey, the average shoppers will likely visit 3.6 sites involved in the business of travel and ticketing. Most of the checking of the available tickets for Alamo and the checking of deals at Find Hotels and Greyhound are made on Yahoo where three fourths of the searches are made on the site. In fact in another survey that was made by Jupiter Research for its Travel Consumer Survey (2004), nearly two fifths of the shoppers online believe that no travel website offers the lowest tickets thus many shoppers will tend to check a number of websites like Travelocity  to get what they want.

Some will refer to LastMinute Travel and Low Airfare E-Mails to get the best offers. Because of the need to find the best deals and to get better value from the Dollar, aggregators are introduced to the web. Through the use of these websites like AllHotels, Expedia and Hotwire it is now easier to find the best deals since the comparison can be made on just one site.


These are considered the metasearch engines that can conduct multiple searches on the web to come up with the listing of flights. To make this happen, screen scraping is used to get the desired results. This is one of the many technologies that are used by priceline.com and Orbitz.com.

This is simply the important technology of checking the websites of airline companies to get the desired results and information. Websites like Limo Rentals and Hotwire will aggregate information and eliminate double entries.

The websites will earn from the arrangement through advertising and by transferring traffic to the actual businesses like Avis and Amtrak. The same technology is used in finding hotels, like in HotelWiz to find Weekend Deals. These websites like Hertz, Thrifty and Enterprise all help the travelers get the best deals. Enterprise and companies too benefit through exposure.
