Singapore Travel agency website?

Postby cherrygeng » Wed, 11 Jun 2008 10:34 am

Do you know any good local travel websites? I am talking about something that you can choose dates, destinations, and then search instantly for a good bargain. I have asked around my colleagues, and all they can tell me is www.zuji.com

For me, Zuji is not good enough. Their search engine often is stuck and unable to provide results. I am looking for one central website that can give you instant deals. I got used to this when I was living in China. They have several websites where you can search for any airticket, hotel, and travel package deals, very very convenient.

Would appreciate to know how do you search for the best deals when traveling? do you go through all the budget airline websites like I do?

Two options for you:

1) Use "Wego" (http://www.wego.com) to search heaps of travel websites.

2) Try http://www.asiatravel.com . They have a physical office near Le Meridien off Orchard Rd. Not sure where you are travelling to but I bought tickets to Australia on Qantas with them and they were cheaper than the Qantas website. Worth checking them out and comparing to other offers.

Why don't you just use the websites you were using in China?

I've found Zuji to be very good, much better than any US or Euro based website.
