A Google Maps way to use Expedia and Orbitz
Here's a new mashup for travelers looking to visually find deals from some of popular online travel booking sites. It's called DailyTripDeals and it works by mashing up data from RSS feeds on Expedia and Orbitz. Trip, flight, hotel and car deals as well as vacation packages are extracted from the feeds and plotted by location on a Google Map... daily. Currently US cities are included, along with London, UK. The geo-developers (Abe & Jess) behind this travel mashup note that "..packages are constantly coming and going so we figured it would be useful if we were able to capture this information on a daily basis and map it for public consumption." More locations and feeds from some of the big airlines are expected soon.
