    Great List! I would however add to this list, which is an all-in-one social travel site that lets you and your friends plan vacations, weekends and evenings in one place. Not only that, you can get the cheapest fares from multiple sites and calculate trip expenses and make bookings from a single site, instead of wasting time comparing pricing across multiple sites. Check out the site on and share your feedback.
