We don't edit your comments, do a spell check on them or fiddle with your punctuation. 

 We do toss out more than one vote per responder.  It's a waste of your time.  The computer eliminates them.  

Some people voted many times trying to skew the results.  It does not work as the computer tosses you out and allows only one vote for you.  We toss out multiple comments too.

Bottom Line:  multiple votes waste your time not the computers.

Here are some of the comments, but not all as some duplicate votes were tossed out.  We don't correct spelling:

Well, I do

That is if I had the money to travel!! Easier to compare and research destinations online.

We usually shop, plan, research and price online but usually book locally with an agent.

A great tool. Have found some amazing deals and places to rent.
_______________________________
I book vacation packages through the airlines website & make preplans for travel by researching on internet.
_______________________________
It's a great tool to do research and compare prices
_______________________________
All the time. I research hotels, places to eat, things to do, try to get a thorough understanding of where I'm intending to visit. I even use the Street View feature of Google Maps to get an up close look of places. The internet also allows me to do some comparison shopping. Indispensable tool when planning a vacation.

_______________________________
I research on the internet but always book through an agent - that way if there's any problems someone has your back.

Great to search then go to a local travel business
_______________________________
how could you not !!!!!!
_______________________________
It is so convenient and after comparing prices from a travel agent it was much cheaper to book a flight directly with the airline.
_______________________________
I also have help from a Time Share as well
_______________________________
Trip Advisor is a great resource. We plan on line, but buy from an agent.
_______________________________
The Internet helps to plan not just where we go but how much we spend; it makes to easier to avoid spending too much or being surprised by inadequate facilities or accommodation. We do all of our travel planning online now.
_______________________________
Of course.... not just for accommodations and travel arrangements but to see what there is to do and see. Years back we might have requested travel information be mailed to us or referred to printed guides but back then we also watched black & white TV. Times have changed.
_______________________________
yes- expedia, sears travel, online booking for hotels
_______________________________
I research on the web and then book through a travel agent.

easiest, most complete and efficient way to research an area and make travel arrangements. Can't imagine the hassles our parents used to have 20 years ago planning a vacation or the local sites they missed because they weren't aware....
_______________________________
We always go on line and check out the area, accomodations and events taking place. Very seldom do we go into the tourist information centres anymore. With GPS, iphone and the internet we can find all we need.
_______________________________
To compare prices and availibilty
_______________________________
shop for best flight costs. Average3 trips to western Canada annually
_______________________________
It is great resource to find information about attractions and weather for an area that is of interest to you while travelling.
