I have been slowly mentioning the sites I come across geared towards mobile users who need travel information. So far I have not found any great site for mobile access to flights, hotels, and cars. When DavidB told me about Orbitz Mobile I got a bit excited and ran to check it out. Sadly I am unimpressed. The site is very weak and only offers a few features:
- You can check out travel alerts for certain cities
- You can login and view your trips
- You can check flight status
- You can find hotels and their average price that are available for that day but you cannot book them or get any more information. The hotels are also limited to the 20 largest cities in the US.
So what do you think? Were you hoping for more? I wonder if my dream of finding and booking a flight/car/hotel from my phone is a pipe dream… Let me know if you have found any other mobile resources.
