Best European Travel Web Sites: 2006
What Web sites have helped you plan your trip? What do you like about the various sites? Anything missing that we could add to ours?
Try www.onetravel.com for researching airfares
If your travel dates are relatively fixed, I've found that onetravel.com provides lower ticket prices than other more well known sites. I haven't always gone with them but it's a good starting place to see what's out there.

Best Website for Walks: Europe Made Easy
If you like to take self-directed walks in Europe, try the Europe Made Easy website at www.eatndrink.com. The free download page has pdfs of walks you can take (with simple directions). You can also buy the cheap walking guides. I loved the Paris walk (and there are walks for Amsterdam, Berlin and Barcelona there, too).

Recommend sidestep.com for low airfares
I highly recommend http://www.sidestep.com
Great website to find low airfares - it searches all the travel and airline sites. Saved me over $200 on a flight last year by finding an alternate airport - one about 30 minutes away but worth it.
NJ USA Sun 12/03/2006
When I'm travelling through Europe, I use website: http://www.flylowcostairlines.org/ It's a search engine for low-cost airlines' flights and it saves me a lot of time.

DerTour Hotel Booking site
I just stumbled across this website while searching for a hotel in Munich.
I knew I really wanted to stay at the Hotel Platzl, but at 200E per night for a standard room from their own website I knew that was an impossibility.
But searching at DerTour I found the Hotel Platzl for my 3 nights including breakfast and taxes for a total of 476 Euro instead of the hotel's rate of 600 Euro. That's a whopping savings.
The website is all in German, but you can navigate fairly easily...enough to see prices. When it came time for me to actually book I sent them an email and booked it that way. Not speaking or reading German I was afraid to type in a CC number and press the OK button.

Best European Travel Web Sites
I have just booked hotels for nine weeks in Europe, beginning in April. I booked all my hotels on booking.com, alongwith checking out tripadvisor.com for their comments as well. And, since we are driving from place to place, I went to viamichelin.com and they have a place on their site to calculate the time and gas costs from location to location. It went fabulously! So I now have every night booked, as well as knowing what the gas will cost and what roads to take... Ain't the internet wonderful???

RE: Search Engines
Kayak is just one resource. It is important to look at all of your resources, INCLUDING Expedia and Travelocity. I just tried to book a flight RT from Denver to Frankfurt in January. Expedia offered a fare of $509, all on one airline, taxes and fees included. When I tried Kayak, they showed I could get the flight for $485, but with multiple airlines. When they took me to the booking website it turned out to be $1134!!! So, don't forget Expedia. Or Travelocity - they offered $514.

Forget Expedia, Travelocity and the rest, use Kayak.com

Travel agents vs. the Web
There are budget airlines, including Southwest, that do not list their prices on other websites. You can get as good a price at Southwest.com as a travel agent can. I take some pride in beating Rick's recommended travel agent by $200 for a flight to Europe.
There may still be an airline consolidator that only sells through travel agents. That is the only chance a travel agent has to beat a web savvy traveler who can take the time to do the searches.
You can try your own consolidators at Airsaver, BargainTravel.com, AirlineConsolidator.com, and 1-800-Fly-Europe.
Iowa USA Mon 10/09/2006
Travel agents vs. the Web
In general I am a very big fan of the internet, but I have to agree with Rick regarding travel agents- they really can save you money on airline tickets. I think it is because they can search so many airlines at once. My non-technical roommate recently asked me to help her search the internet to see if she was getting the best possible deal from her travel agent for a flight from LAX to Chicago. We looked at all of the sites that I could think of- orbitz.com, cheaptickets.com, expedia.com, travelocity.com. None of them could beat her agent's price. Turns out the agent had found a good price on Southwestern, and for some reason it just did not show up on the major web sites. Go figure.

Alternative Reservations During my travels to Europe I found a great website called venere.com that had excellent service, great user ratings and pictures with maps of locations.

Thon Hotels: Excellent chain, horrible web site
We had an excellent experience with the Thon (formerly Rainbow) Hotel chain during our trip to Norway and Benelux this past summer. The hotels were mostly well managed, centrally located, and, in conjunction with the Thon's Skanplus discount card, (which provided a special rate, plus a sixth night free), very affordable. However, the Thon Hotel website (www.thonhotels.no) should be avoided at all costs. Although informative and aesthetically pleasing, the website is functionally a mess. Fortunately I made most of my reservations directly with the hotels, which is advisable, but on one occasion I reserved a room through the Thon site with the Hotel Bristol Stephanie in Brussels. Due to a change in travel plans I had to cancel the reservation, so I contacted the hotel directly. The Hotel Bristol Stephanie, showing a complete lack of custom service, refused the cancellation unless it was made through the Thon Hotel website. So I tracked down an internet café, went to the Thon site, spent 10 minutes trying to find the cancellation link, canceled the reservation, but received no verification number or printable cancellation page. Basically I had to hold my breath and hope that the transaction went through. Needless to say, it didn't. The full charge was on my credit card, and subsequent emails to Thon representatives produced nothing. For a hotel chain that tries and mostly succeeds at being a cutting-edge, up-and-coming chain, to have such weak internet capabilities is inexcusable.

Paris apartment PARISBESTLODGE
I would heartily recommend Parisbestlodge (www.parisbestlodge.com)to friends visiting Paris. Thierry, the owner, was friendly and very prompt returning messages and clear about procedures. I was impressed with the website and found the information very helpful. Our apartment near the Place des Voges felt like a nice home away from home for our 10 days there. I came with my college son and my sister to visit a daughter who is studying in Paris for the year. My other daughter also joined us part of the time. The price was more reasonable than 2 hotel rooms would have been and it was great to have internet to keep in touch (my husband was in Japan), a place to fix some food and relax over morning coffee, and the ability to do laundry (although took much longer than American machines). Both the sofa bed and loft bed were very comfortable and the boulangerie nearby was delightful. We had a great meal at Cafe Baci a block away, and also enjoyed the Provencal restaurant, Chez Janou, nearby. We used the metro which was convenient and visited several of the interesting museums nearby. Staying in this apartment was defintely a positive experience.

Bookings.de great for European Hotels
I used bookings.de to secure rooms in Dresden, Nuremberg and Rothenburg OT on our recent trip. I found it to be the best site for a number of reasons: 1.There are no booking fees, unlike Orbitz and others. 2.You can cancel up to 18:00 the day of arrival - other sites had durations as great as 72 hours or else you would get charged for a night. 3.Excellent wide selection and low rates 4.Great navigation - there is a map that shows all the hotels by icon, so you can easily see where a hotel is in relation to the city center, main train station, etc. 5.It works! All of our reservations were in order for the quoted rates and the hotels were as described in the profile and user reviews.

Airfare to Germany
The German Holiday Airline LTU @www.ltu.de consistantly offers some of the cheapest airfares to Germany from a few US destinations. Taking our family to Germany last May, we saved about $170 per person. We did have to make our own conections in New York, but with only one bag per person, even that was easy.

European carrier-Smartwings cancelled flights
Smartwings cancels many of their flights- do not use them if getting to your destination is important to you! Google "cancelled Smartwings flights" and hit I feel lucky to see how often this happens. We wish we had done this BEFORE b/c they cancelled us w/o notice (they lied about that& took over 3 weeks to refund the money) and left us to buy a ticket on another airline for 10x the price. I'd be happy to hear from others with bad experiences with them.
San Rafael, Ca USA Sat 08/05/2006
I love to shop for my airplane tickets at www.bestfares.com. They also show fares from nearby airports. If you can travel on Tuesday or Wednesday, you can find some great rates. It's best to check daily with them as they post new fares all the time.

Cheap German Airline
Live near Las Vegas, NV or Ft. Myers, FL or Orlando, FL? Try Condor (www.condor.com) for great rates to Germany and other european destinations. Condor is a charter airline owned by Lufthansa and offers cheap flights and wonderful planes.
Last November, my wife and I flew non-stop from Frankfurt am Main to Las Vegas for 77 EUR each!!! Because they're a charter airline they often have great last minute deals to and from Europe.
Good luck and happy travels.

budget flights to Europe
In the past I had found that most desirable flights, i.e. non-stop flights out of say N.Y. or Boston, were slightly cheaper bought direct as opposed to through travelocity, etc. But I just found a new sight, 1800flyeurope.com. The best price I had found for a r/t, non-stop flight to Amsterdam from Boston in december was $720, 1800flyeurope was less then $600 including a 3 day car rental as part of the package price. They saved me over $500 on four tickets. You can also book 3 nights hotel to recieve the best rates.

Italian bed and breakfasts
I happened on a website in Rick's Italy book that I investigated, www.cross-pollinate.com. They have rooms and apartments in Rome, Venice, and Florence with shared baths and private (ensuite) baths. Each listing has pictures that are accurate, details, and language of host. We just returned from our trip and I would highly recommend this site. The hosts were very helpful, the accommodations in residential areas so they were quiet, and just as advertised. The people at cross-pollinate.com answered all my inquires promptly. I would HIGHLY recommend Ca' Maria in Venice. It is a newly renovated three room apartment with full kitchen (we went to the Billa supermarket for food and ate in for a change) just off the main street that crosses Venice for only 57.50 Euros per person per night. Christian meets you at the vaporetto stop (2 stops from the train station) and walks you to the apartment giving you information about close banks, shopping, local sights... Ciao

Allright, let's be honest here, Rick Steve's guides need pictures. I discovered to my delight however that you can have a great preview of what you're going to see by going to the mega-photo website www.flickr.com and typing in the name of your destination. The fact that the photos are by amateurs and the natives of your destination lends it authenticity. Play around with it, you'll be hooked for hours.

Winter in Greece
Before booking a rental for our Christmas holiday vacation this winter, I visited several sites. (Sorry if these have been mentioned before!)
Since my husband's family is in Athens, (we visited Athens two years ago and thought we'd try somewhere new) we decided the islands were impractical, so, based on information on the greecetravel.com site, we looked at Nafplio.
For other traveller's info, I've found that many rentals were closed during the Christmas season, so search early.
When searching for rentals in Santorini/Crete we found www.therightvacationrental.com which had a ton of rentals and lots of information on what to do on the islands. Through them we found their sister site, www.untours.com, which has an AMAZING number of triplogs and slideshows created by their customers. While we were initially looking for a "self-catered" trip, Untours has availability in Nafplio over the winter, so that is the direction we are going.
One of the triplogs on the site is *specifically* about a winter trip to Nafplio: Winter Trip Log
Hope this helps any other winter travellers to Greece!

Hello Rick, greetings from Holland, I'm not related to this one (bookings.com). They offer almost every price range from hostels, cheap B&B's to luxury hotels. Have reviews from guests and the site is in several foreign languages. The features I like is the possibility to choose an accommodations from a map or close to attractions or even if rooms are fully occupied they give you an other choice in the area.

Paris Museum pass

It was worth every penny just for skipping the entrance lines and a clean bathroom. http://www.parismuseumpass.fr/flash/hp_en.html We visited some museums we had not planned on because they were covered by the pass - they turned out to be some of the best things we saw.

Visiting Italy in Western Europe is a great idea. There are some very beautiful places in Italy which are meant to be seen, e.g. Tuscany, Florence, Rome, Venice etc... These areas are Rich Cultured, Lush Green, Away from hectic of City Life. You can have an Italian Food and Italian Wine Tasting, SPA and Pool Bathing Experience there. Italian Resorts, Castles and Villas are famous for their beauty and luxurious living style.
There are some good tour operators, which arrange customized tours for these areas and have some very awesome packages. I recommend you to consider "Tuscan Way".

(I'll spare you the obligatory "czech" it out joke)...
I randomly came across this website while doing some research on some sights in the Czech Republic. There is an itinerary planning tool that is really great (free, and you dont have to log in or anything). It gives you recommended day schedules according to the city that you are in and the average time that you should spend at each spot. I found it especially helpful with small towns like Kutna Hora and Olomouc.

People who might be traveling in Bavaria should check out www.bayern-takt.de, the website for BEG, the organizaton that oversees regional rail transportation in Bavaria.
The website, which has an English side, gives the best information I have seen on the Bayern Ticket. It includes a map of the entire regional rail system where it is accepted, as well as a list of independent train lines, municipal transit districts, and regional bus lines that accept the Ticket. The website has links to the websites for those municipalities and regional bus lines, where you can find system maps and schedules.
The website has a list of local rail ticket, such as the Bayerwald or Oberallgäu Pass, which give low cost, unlimited travel in that local area.
The website also has layout maps of every train station in Bavaria, complete with pictures, so you can be familiar with a station before you arrive.

To find incomparably fine beers in Germany or Belgium, ones you may never find at home, go first to ratebeer.com and check out the Top 100 or so for many options.
Germany has several world-class Doppelbocks (esp around Munich) and Belgium offers a 'Beer Route" around Trappist monasteries making beer like Orval, Westvleteren, Rochefort and others of note. Belgium is 'The Bordeaux of the Beer World" and there is also many a Bavarian hamlet with fine local 'micro' brews. Do not miss these attractions if you like beer!

Houses and Flats in U.K and Ireland
I found a terrific resource in the booking agents at Great Trips Unlimited. www.gtunlimited.com They book self-catering accommodations in England, Ireland and Scotland, but also have a lot of good information about general travel in Europe. I booked a flat in London and a house in Dingle for my family, both of which my agent had visited personally. I LOVED them both. And the folks at GTU helped me navigate the flights on Ryan Air from London to Ireland, and even booked a car for me! So if you need accommodation and advice, I highly recommend them. I also love the advice given at Fodors.com (though it is time consuming to read through) and the non-snotty advice at Slow Traveler.
