Last minute travel

It's Tuesday; you're already thinking about the weekend, and possibly escaping to some far away destination. "No way," you think. "Traveling last minute is waaaaaay too expensive."

Maybe. Maybe not.

Site 59 is an excellent site with which to plan your hasty getaway. You can book online two weeks in advance, or even up to three hours before departure. Basically, you select your point of departure, and Site 59 will offer specials from that destination. Itineraries are for the weekends only, but may consist of a Thursday-Saturday, Friday-Sunday, or Sunday-Tuesday grouping.

You will have the ability to book airfare with a hotel, airfare with a car, or airfare with a hotel and car rental. Bear in mind that if you are traveling by yourself, you are subject to an additional single passenger fee. If you find yourself having to fly away for the weekend last minute, and you really only need airfare, there are many times where the prices on Site 59 would be less than what you would pay for just a round trip ticket elsewhere. Select the airfare and car option if you have a place to stay already.

Lovers engaging in long distance relationships, take note: Site 59 now has an option that allows you to book airfare from two separate origins to the same destination.

"Sweetie, I'll see you in San Francisco?"

It's possible!

As with everything, please make sure you read what is included with your airfare, hotel, and car rentals carefully. Some hotel packages you choose may be subject to extra fees. Site 59 does not allow changes or refunds, so make sure you really intend to go before purchasing. :)

More and more multinational companies and noteworthy business concerns are venturing into the hospitality sector owing to the sudden and remarkable spurt that this sector witnessed in the last couple of years. The latest to join the bandwagon is the very famous Sobha Group. The most surprising and remarkable development that the hospitality sector is showing even in the third world countries has prompted these concerns to either increase their number of properties in these countries or start afresh. If we take the example of India we will see that the number of world-class five star hotels are growing by the day in all the major cities owing to the growth and development that the country is witnessing in the IT sector and the overall infrastructural boom. Opening properties in the countries like India prove to be all the more fruitful because they are experiencing an unprecedented hike in the number of guests who are wiling to stay in these hotels. The profits are also more as against the investment. Especially Bangalore hotels and Hyderabad hotels are reaping the maximum benefits apart from the metros because these two cities are witnessing unparalleled progress in the IT sector. Most of the hotels are also tying up with Hyderabad airlines and Bangalore airlines respectively, so that they have edge over their competitors as far as the bookings and popularity are concerned. In short, the hotels in Hyderabad and the hotels in Bangalore are trying to make hay while the sun is still shining. In addition these areas are comparatively less costly as compared to the metros. The profit that they are generating is certainly on the higher side as against the investment.
