Travel Agencies

Many of these are presumably 'adventure' agencies that stress intrepid travel, but in fact are overcharging for over-organised tours for people who want to feel they are off the beaten path. Useful to browse their itineraries however for ideas on routes.

Air planes

Fare comparison sites - the big ones

Always go to the airline’s own Web site to simplify the reservation, avoid third-party booking fees and ensure the lowest fare.

Airlines

Airport Lounges

Rooms

Book hotels through their own web sites — to avoid extra charges and to create a direct relationship between yourself and the hotel. However always check Kayak, Hotels.com, dealbase etc. to verify the rate.
