Delta Air Lines has announced a new stand-alone booking engine, powered by iSeatz. Visitors to delta.com can now book hotels, car rentals and other activities and services with or without purchasing a flight. Passengers who have already booked a flight can also return and purchase non-flight travel services anytime. On the home page under the Book a Trip tab, you will see Hotel, Car and Vacations links. You can sort hotels by Delta picks, price, rating and distance from airport.
Car rental options are listed all on one page and are sorted by company and car class — this option makes it easy for SkyMiles members to see the best car rental rate to get their miles. A nice touch on the Car Search page is a notice about a current car rental bonus offer. The Vacations link is simply another way to get to Delta’s vacations Web site.
The online tool is a convenient way to book all of your travel needs in one place, but only partners of Delta Air Lines are listed. If you are a SkyMiles member and want to maximize your mileage earning, the tool will help you add to your mileage account. However, you may miss out on the best travel deals available on other travel booking sites by booking through Delta.
