Services

The concept of TravelFox is to find the current rates on airfare, car rentals, and hotels by offering an all-in-one Web search engine. While generally most Travel websites search all of the different airlines for the best airfare, TravelFox searches all of the travel search sites such as Expedia and Orbitz for their results. As most people visit numerous travel search sites prior to making their purchase, TravelFox brings all of those searches together in one site.[5].
