The use of travel agencies has declined for a reason; everyone books trips online because it is so convenient. Travel websites allow you to account for all your major travel expenditures without much work on your part. You can line up hotels, rental cars, and flights using your computer!

Purchase tickets on the Internet in advance and print them at home when you have a specific destination, like a theme park, in mind. The fee is worth the time you save skipping the lines. Also, check to see if the attraction offers timed entry, as these can allow you to skip lines within the park as well.
