So you've already scoured your favorite discount travel site in search of the perfect vacation package and started thinking about your packing list, what else do you need to consider before you take to the friendly skies? I've put together a lineup of my favorite websites and web services to make it easy for you.
Remember the psychic website Farecast that could predict the best air fare prices on any given day? Well now you can not only find cheap flights, but you can price compare hotels with Farecast Hotels! That's right, similar to the regular Farecast, all you have to do is enter the city and dates and the beta hotel search engine will provide a price comparison tool to show you if you are receiving a good deal on your hotel. This beta version already has more than 5,000 hotels in 30 major cities in the U.S and over 80,000 across the globe, and can predict prices 90 days in advance. Use it to also get detailed info about the hotels!

Want to go to a website that will tell you when to purchase airline tickets to get the best rate? Farecast.com is the first airline prediction website. This beta version offers airfare predictions for over 75 U.S. departure cities to top domestic destinations. I have tried this hot new website a couple of times and was worried that the airfare predictions would be the same as weatherman predictions- close but no cigar. But for the couple of times I have tried this site, it has actually worked.
