I typically will book my own hotels especially since we tend to go for boutique hotels. Many boutique hotels one must book directly.

I shop Apple, Funjet, Expedia, WorryFree, Travelocity, but we travel the end of January and grab a charter package from MPS. We've used all of the above except Travelocity without problems. We've also used a couple of local travel agents when they could book for the same price I saw on line.

bookit.com for accomodation

Have used them several times. Fortunately folks on this forum post when bookit.com has screaming deals and if the timing is right we get to take advantage of it.

Who ever has the cheapest rate. Never have used a travel agent, never a problem with booking online. Like z's mommy, we stay at boutique hotels and often book directly (email for rates and ask for unadvertised specials)
