Reservation Information
Info on the wedding travel arrangements

We know that this event requires a lot of you to travel. Anne and I greatly appreciate the effort you will have to make in coming to our wedding. In efforts to accommodate our guests with the best possible arrangements, we have listed some of the best lodging and travel resources in the area.

The reception will be held at the Multnomah Athletic Club in Portland, Oregon; and we have found a great deal on a hotel nearby. We booked rooms at the Portland Marriott for our guests. The hotel requires booking 30 days in advance of the event. To make a reservation under our room block, mention our names and the date of the wedding (January 17, 2004). Below are links and lists of our recommended lodging and other resources.

GENERAL TRAVEL SITES
Information on travel and travel services

  www.southwestair.com - A great discount airline. Book early and save!
  www.johnnyjet.com - All round resource for travel information.
  www.clarkhoward.com - Travel guru and consumer advocate.
  www.worldtravelguide.com - General travel info.

META SEARCHES [allows choice of time and airline]
  www.southwestair.com - A great discount airline. Book early and save!
  www.sidestep.com - This site is a great place to start you search but by no means the cheapest.
  www.orbitz.com - Decent travel search - often leaves out the discount airlines.
  www.cheaptickets.com - Another good travel search
  www.onetravel.com - never used it other than gathering info  www.travelocity.com - Usually more expensive than the other sites, though very useful for learning about schedules, routes, and fares for searching other sites.

BIDDING SITES [Airline and exact time not specified]
www.priceline.com - The champion web site for cheap travel.The trick is to search all the possible airlines using the other web sites to learn the flight times, routes, and fares then return to priceline.com and bid for the ticket at 50% reduced rate. Sometimes you have to submit the bid 20 times or more. Persistence usually pays off, don't be afraid of rejection. This site works really well if you can be flexible with time in order to save some extra bucks.
www.hotwire.com - This site offers a little more flexibility, you get to pick the time but not the airline.

AIRLINE SITES
Over the years, the airlines have really stepped up their service with web sites. In the past they tended to rely on the travel agents and other sites to sell their tickets but due to the pressure from discount airlines and competing business models, airlines have turned to web sites as a cost effective way to sell seats. Now the cheapest tickets are often found right at the airline sites themselves. Sign up for their weekly emails and frequent flier programs to receive extra discounts not available through other sites.

DISCOUNT AIRLINES
