travel.SE tools

Air travel sites

  • Matrix Airfare Search
    Similar to SkyScanner but less well known. Finds more cheap flights than a typical aggregator but doesn't sell tickets.

Mapping sites

  • batchgeo
    Can take a list of places and generate a map with each place pinpointed. Could be very useful for answering questions about multiple destinations in a certain area.
