Tuesday Travel Website of the Week: Momondo

October 26th, 2010 · No Comments · Tips & Tricks, Travel Website

Website: Momondo, http://www.momondo.com

I received a press release on this site over the summer and checked it out.  It is a visually sleek travel search aggregator (a search tool where you can search multiple online travel booking sites and see side by side results.) There are lots of aggregated search sites out there, but what set Momondo apart for me is two things.

First is the hotel search function.  Rather than just mapping hotel serach results on a map, I was able to add a point to the map and sort by distance.  This is so helpful when looking for a hotel near an airport, event or specific destination.

Second is the city guides which also use the map tool.  I am a visual/spacial person so looking for sites, restaurants or hotels in a certain area via map is wonderful.  We are staying in New Delhi for our first few days in India and I checked out some of the closest sites and restaurants to our guest house.
