I backpacked through Europe for two months last year and we used this site several times to book hostels. It's a good site because you can search by map or price, and each hostel/hotel's page has photos, a description written by the hostel, a checklist of amenities, and reviews. I prefer the reviews on hostels.com because there tend to be more of them, but either way you can see what others have to say. Super easy way to find a place to stay all over the world.
Such a better way to travel. We used Wimdu for a trip to Paris and staying in a local's apartment completely changed how we experienced the city. For less than we would have paid for a hotel, we had our own entire place, with a kitchen, living room, balcony, record player and even a washer. And our host was so nice and gave us a list of his favorite places that he suggested we visit (which we did!). The site is very easy to use - just find the apartment that speaks to you and book!
I've used cheapoair.com several times to book flights, both in the states and abroad. I like it because it shows you the price of several different airlines all on a single page, and it gives you the option of searching for "flexible" dates (+/- 3 days). And I've rarely had to pay a booking fee which is always a plus.
I hate flying, but flying with Virgin isn't your typical airline experience. Not only do you get your own little tv screen with a ton of movies and tv shows to watch, but now they let you check out a google laptop for your flight so you can surf the internet - and chat with other passengers if you want. Hopefully they'll add more cities to their destinations soon.
