has launched a new service to enable visitors to enter their travel itinerary once and find the lowest price from more than two dozen hotel and motel
partners. “BookingBuddy.com is the one-stop shop for the lowest airfares on the
Web,” said Stephen Lin, BookingBuddy.com’s product manager. “Now travelers
looking for the best lodging deals can check the price on their favorite
websites with just one click of the mouse, and without having to enter
their itinerary over and over.”
Users shopping for a hotel or motel at
BookingBuddy.com can search any of the major online travel agencies,
including Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity, Hotwire, and Priceline, as well as
the top domestic hotel chains, including Holiday Inn, Marriott and others.
BookingBuddy.com is a free web-based application for which users choose
the sites they want to search, one at a time. Every search at
BookingBuddy.com opens a new browser window, allowing shoppers to compare
their airfare results side by side. Travelers then book their rooms
directly from the hotel or agency displaying the preferred itinerary.
There is no need to download special software to use this free service.
More than 2.5
million travelers have used BookingBuddy.com for airline travel planning
since it was launched in September, 2003.
