Booking travel soon?  Travel industry insider, Tory Lorance Weiss has given us some great apps and websites to help you save money on your next adventure.

First of all, she points to Travel  + Leisure’s list of the top 35 “Best Travel Websites and Apps.” And in case you were wondering, Marin Magazine’s travel section didn’t make the list … yet!  This list includes some bargain finders like HotelTonight, a free download on iTunes, which allows users to book same-day hotel stays in cities like SF, LA, NY, Vegas etc. at an average of 40 percent savings. Or Room77.com a website that guides you as to what the best room is in the hotel you are booking.  Along the same I-gotta-have-the-best-pick theme – seatguru.com helps you select the best seat on your next flight.

And then another that didn’t make the list – but has the cutest interface ever (photo above) is Hipmunk.com – a start up out of San Francisco.
