As the weather heats up and kids start dreaming of that final school bell, it's time to think about a summer getaway. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on some tools for last-minute travel booking and how they can ensure you a great deal.
For people who just wanna get away and don't care as much about the specific destination, try using a new website called getgoing.com. Select a broad category such as Caribbean beach or Mediterranean. And then, the site will find the most affordable vacation options and provide travel tips for that destination. Room77 is a great website and mobile app that lets travelers book last-minute hotel rooms at great prices. In one search, you can compare prices across all the other popular hotel searching sites, saving you hours of price comparison. The site is also sure to alert travelers to specific discounts available, and provides advice about the best rooms and amenities. Finally, once you get to your destination, you need something to do. Head over to tiqiq.com to find the best sporting, theater, or concert deals in the area. And no need to plan ahead since some of the best prices are available last-minute.
