Travel , accommodation in USA

Hello,

I know there are plenty of Americans here so I was wondering if someone could help. There will also be people who've travelled a lot to the States.

I am looking to do some travelling in America this summer and need to find hotels, internal flights and accommodation whilst i'm there. Therefore I was wondering if there are any websites that give good deals for this kind of thing. Places I'll be going include Minneapolis, Tampa, New York and Nashville.

Also if I fly into JFK, New York what's the best way to get to La Guardia or Newark? Are the buses the best bet or is a Taxi cheaper if more than one person is travelling.

Thanks a lot for any help and tips

Hello,

Seriously if you want the best rates check out www.priceline.com There you can place a bid on a hotel and see if any hotel will accept the price you offered. I did it last august and stayed at this beautiful 4 star hotel 30 minutes away from Manhattan in Greenwich CT which is beautiful and very rich. I payed 60 dollars for the room. IN the USA its per room not charged per person like Europe. so check out priceline.com

Re: Travel , accommodation in USA

stay away from airport taxis. They know you are not from there and they will rip you off. Check any bus services there. Here is a co. I use to work for. www.airlink.com they will provide airport transportation at a good price. I just moved from manhattan so if you need any advice about NYC i can tell you all. I was a tour guide there for over 8 years-
