Hereís a very cool new website that I urge you to check out. From the creator of Hotwire.com, this site helps travelers organize their plans. As we all know, there isnít just one website out there that offers the best deals all the time. Thatís why I created the Johnny Jet travel portal. When shopping around for the best price, most people end up booking flights, hotels, car rentals and various activities all on different websites. Printing all of those itineraries and confirmations is not only a waste of paper, but it gets confusing, too. This is where TripIt.com steps in. All you have to do is email your confirmations to email@example.com; once they receive your bookings, they'll email you a link to view your full itinerary. It takes no time at all and it really works! I just did it and was pleasantly surprised; they threw in maps, weather forecasts and links to useful tips, including links to check-in online.
This website provides links to several popular mapping companies for the destination you are searching. As a bonus (and one of the ways they make money), they suggest guidebook recommendations for every country, though they arenít all updated. For example, the recommended USA guidebook is the Frommers edition from 2001. Uh, hello?! Itís 2007, people! Time for an update!
