    I don't recognise a few of those sites. Could you please add a short description?

    Nice list - thanks for doing the work. I use two more sites for hotel searching, that I really like:

    hotelscombined.com
    travel.nextag.com

    Between them, they include a huge amount of feeder sources for rates. I like the hotel brand searchability on each, for specific hotels, as I am often looking for "best rate guarantee" or "look no further competitive" rates.
    Hotelscombined.com lists hotel families such as Starwood, Marriott. Travel.nextag lists specific hotel brands within hotel families, such as Aloft, Four Points, etc. There, I can spot at a glance the hotel whose rate I am comparing.

    Airport Parking:

    Also - I recommend, for airport parking rates - aboutairportparking.com. I use them to park at LAX and as a result, found a great rate at the Hilton Hotel for valet parking, in their covered garage - better than lots farther out.
    And I use it for family members parking options at their airports, in other states, and find deals. Tends to list the larger airports, but a very helpful site.

    Thanks to FrugalTravelGuy for telling us about hotelscombined and aboutairportparking in his blogs. I tried them and they have been very helpful.

    I agree with Anders - www.biddingtraveler.com is an excellent resource. I use many of the techniques they do on my own, but this captures it in one place and allows you to do it very logically.

    The site will not only help you figure out what bids might be good (altho some of the other sites like www.betterbidding.com seem to have more data for certain destinations), but it will run you through the bidding process step by step. I don't always bid the same amounts that they suggest, but use their technique for adding zones. Highly recommended, especially for Priceline newbies.

    http://www.hipmunk.com/ a new flight search engine. One of the sort features for results is "agony":D
    http://www.hopstop.com/ "Get Transit & Walking Directions" , they currently have thirty N. American cities
    http://www.autoslash.com/ Booking engine for cheaper car rentals, also lets you track a rental booked on websites other than autoslash
    http://www.yapta.com/ flight booking engine and can track air fares after you book, so you can get a refund (possibly), if a fare drops

    A have to admit, I waste a lot of time booking hotels and travel. I search the web for best deals, then try to beat this when bidding on travel. www.hoteldealsrevealed.com deserves a mention too. BFT (dare I mention) ... I've given up on that site. Sorry :-( Just don't like the admin.

    If you want a site for Cruises.
    Try CruiseShark.com
    Although I have had difficulty with getting it to work well
    and CruiseDeckPlans.com unfortunately a pay site but works sort of like Seat Guru except for Cruise cabins.

    And for checking prices for cruises, there is no one good site. I have had the best results using Southwest Airlines Vacations to check for prices. They seem to get most of the prices at a comparable price and you don't need to follow thru with the booking.

    Finally for cruises. Cruisecompete.com. You submit the cruise that you want, and let the Travel Agents send you their best price. However, you only get Eight free pricings. (that is for eight cruises) before they want you to purchase their service. supposedly during the eight pricings, if you book with one of the Travel Agents, it starts all over again. Have booked one cruise thru CruiseCompete and was happy with the price and the outcome.
