Wanna holiday?

I so want a holiday... And today's newspaper says that Wesak Day is confirmed to be on 1st May on the same day as Labor Day. This means that we'll be getting two days off. Whoopee! If I could only take the Monday off, I'd be set for a five day long weekend. Which makes checking out HotelReservations.com something to do on my to-do list. Let's see if they have anything that's suitable for a weekend jaunt!

Don't be fooled by the name, this website does just about everything for your next vay-kay. Check availability and book your hotel, your flights / car rentals online or by calling the toll-free number. I like that the website is so user-friendly it comes with options for different countries, languages and currencies. English? Check. Spanish? Check. They've even broken down the hotels by city or region, so you can zoom in quickly on the link to where you want to go - brilliant for saving time. Once there, you can opt to search by availability of room, facilities or even hotel brand name or browse thru the list of hotels till you find one that's suited to you (or a name that you like. LOL!). But that's not all. Like all good reservation websites, HotelReservations.com has a city guide that offers suggestions on where to go, what to do and see, and what to eat for each major city in its repertoire. Even better still, the website has this search feature that allows you to specify the type of vacation package you require, accomodation + air, accomodation + car, etc. Another nifty feature is the activity search, which shows you all the activities / festivities happening while you're in town. If you're on a budget, fret not because HotelReservations.com lists out the prices of all the hotels, motels and vacation homes that you're considering, so you know exactly how much you're looking at. And if you make your booking before 31 May 2007, you can even get rebates of up to $100.00 on top of their guarantee of lowest rates. With connections to over 20,000 hotels and resorts worldwide, I'm pretty sure you can find a place that's just right for you.

Now I can start planning the much hoped for trip to the Maldives sometime in the near future. Care to join me? *wink*

simple american: Sure! I do hope there's enough air in there, though... *brings hammer to whack a few airholes*
