    "I am always on the look out for low cost lodging to visit places I've never been before. I've tried all of the typical sites when I stumbled upon Kayak.com. I was apprehensive at first, but after playing around on the site I was completely blown away. I would recommend the site to anyone looking to find a great deal on lodging, especially international locations."
