In this age of technology more and more people prefer online booking sites for every type of booking. Travel booking sites are much preferred because they offer much flexibility and ease to the customers. Today I am going to review an online travel booking site Orbitz.

Travel Bundles:

When we look at the travel bundles that you can get then there is a huge collection of bundles.

You can get discount on different type of deals and if you donor like the deals that are displayed there then you can make your own custom deals and this is very easy and basic.

Airfare

There fare is normal as compared to other travel booking sites and you can expect slight high rates during holidays and weekends but this is so common in the industry.

Hotel/Car Rental

You will see the wide variety of hotels across the globe and you can compare them with each other to see the difference in services and their rates. You can also book a car along with your hotel booking and this is very easy.

Deals Finder

They have another cool service and that is the deal finder. You can find the best deals that are being offered by the hotels across the world. You can compare the deals to check the difference in prices and other services.

Flight Search Options/Multiple Destinations

They have the latest option of searching the flights of your choice to see that whether they have seats available in that particular flight. You can also check the destinations that are available to you on that specific flight plan. You can search with lot of different filters.

Flight Time Preference

You can set your flight time preference and this is very easy. But you have to keep that in mind that this preference that you will set will not be obeyed as guaranteed so you must be prepared to adjust your time for flight.

Preferred Airline/Preferred Class

Another cool service that they offer is the selection of preferred airline. This feature is offered by most of the other online travel booking sites but the additional feature that you will get is the selection of preferred class. You can select the preferred class as business and it will be filled in most cases.

Hotel Search Options

You can search the different type of hotels by the hotel finder tool on their site. You can use lot of different type of filters to refine your search. You can set different preferences such as price and room space.

Sort by Price/Star Rating

You can sort the hotels or apartments that you are searching by price or star rating and this is very simple and with this service your time will be saved and you will be able to find best hotel in no time.

Ease of Use

Their site is very user friendly when it comes to check the ease of use. You can find what you are looking and all things are done without any difficulty and frustration.

Travel Reminders

They offer another cool option and that is the travel reminder, it means that when you have done the booking or you are their registered user then you can set the travel reminder to remind you about your travel plans.

Mobile App

They have very cool mobile app that you can use with very ease on your smart phone. This app will let you do all the things that you will do on the normal site.

Check Flight Status

You can also check the status of the flight to see that whether it is delayed or it is on time. You can use this feature when your flight is on the busy airport then you can use it to check the flight status.

Earn Frequent Flyer Miles

They also have a bonus program and it means that you will earn some extra miles with every booking you do with them. This can be very rewarding in some cases. Very few online travel bookers offer this type of reward to its customers.

Travel News or Blog

They also have a state of the art blog network that is constantly filled with the latest news about travel. You can frequently visit it to check the latest articles that are being offered by them.

Help & Support

They have very good help and support as compared to their competitors and they have lot of different options for support and help. You can contact then by phone, email and chat. Their help is available 24/7.

In general they are very good online travel platform for people who frequently travel to different areas of world. You will get good rates and good service and this is very hard to find now a days.
