TIPS FROM THE RANCHERS
Kiplinger’s Magazine recently did a story titled “24 Best Travel Sites to Save You Money: Find the best deals online for plane tickets, hotel rooms, vacation packages and car rentals, both at home and abroad.” They divided it into categories like airfare (tops: Kayak.com), lodging (tops: Hotels.com), vacation packages (tops: Cruisecompete.com) and so forth. They could have also added Dude Ranch Vacations (tops: Ranchweb.com).
We like Kiplinger’s 24 picks (Read more: http://www.kiplinger.com/features/archives/best-travel-sites-to-save-you-money.html#ixzz1qu4cQcp8 ). But we and the ranchers we talked to have our own faves.
Kayak.com, expedia.com, Expedia.com, Orbitz.com,Travelocity.com, Sidestep.com
Travelzoo.com. But don’t miss these less well known sites: Lastminute.com, Skyauction.com, Dogpile.com, Accona.com, Quikbook.com, andUniversity Hotel Network.
Try mtSOBEK.com, Family Travel Network.com.
And of course when you’re dreaming of that perfect ranch vacation, we like Ranchweb.com (but then, we’re biased)!
