Nowadays, the use of internet is one of the easiest method to use to do everything
Gone are the days when travelers need to visit their local travel agent and settle on a single fare
when booking flights. Today, the Internet is a far easier option for customers to purchase airline tickets.
The advantages range from quick and easy ways to compare prices on several airlines to allowing travelers
to print boarding passes at home.
Gone are the days when you have to make trips to the local travel agency to reserve airfares or
book a hotel for the night. Today, if you have a credit card handy and access to the Internet, you can
finalize your travel plans within minutes. Take advantage of some of the benefits of online reservations to
save both time and money, to ensure a stress-free vacation.
Convenience
One advantage of booking a hotel, flight or car rental online is the convenience. Being able to make all
your travel plans on the Internet means you can do it any time of the day or night at home, or while you're
on your lunch break at the office. Customers on the go can even make reservations on their smartphones
or tablets. There's no need for lengthy phone calls or visits to a travel agency -- with just a few minutes and
a click of the mouse, you'll have all your plans finalized.
Prices
You can shop around when making online reservations and choose the best price. Many hotel and airline
websites boast of having the lowest prices and even offer Internet-only offers for travelers, which are
deeply discounted. You might be caught paying an extra fee to speak with customer service
representatives if you make travel arrangements over the phone, so another advantage of booking online
is saving money on all those extra hidden fees.
Changes and Cancelations
It's simple for travelers to change or cancel online reservations. Instead of calling the hotel or airline and
waiting for a customer service representative to help you through the process, booking online means you
can do it wherever you have Internet access. Hotels such as the Fairmont (fairmont.com) and the Marriott
(marriott.com) provide bookings with no cancellation fees, while Virgin America (virginamerica.com)
provides free online changes and cancellations within 24-hours of departure.
Customer Reviews
Making a reservation over the phone or at a travel agency doesn't allow you to check out what past
customers have thought of hotel chains or certain airlines. Another benefit of making online reservations is
being able to see these customer reviews. Skytrax (airlinequality.com) features over 4 million reviews of
airlines on everything from seat comfort to airport lounges. TripAdvisor (tripadvisor.com) is another place
to read customer reviews, with hotels, flights, attractions and even restaurants among the places
reviewed.
