Booking through Travelocity made my trip unbelievably easy. Everything was in one place on my phone. I booked my plane, hotels and transportation through Travelocity. It showed up on my phone in the order that it was scheduled. Everything was in one place. I arranged for long term parking separately. I could access it through my email but it was difficult in the midst of traveling to find it. Next time I will do everything through Travelocity! At one point I needed to check in to two different airlines. Thank goodness for Travelocity because all my information was there in one spot! Everything I booked was exactly as described. I read the reviews and looked at the descriptions and they were very accurate! The other thing that was very helpful was they attached maps of each airport I was in. This made things so much easier because I could see where I needed to go for my next flight! I will always use Travelocity in the future!!
The pictures shown are very nice but they do not tell you that you have to climb 4 flights of stairs to reach the apartment, and this is very difficult when you have to carry up your luggage. There is no elevator or lift. Floors do not appear to be clean and show mildew in the grout, so we made sure we wore our slippers or shoes at all times. They have a full shower but it is very small and tight. The area of the apartment is in an excellent area of Florence; very close to restaurants, shops, and famous sites to see, so this made it better for us. If the season is cold, there is a lock on the dial to raise the temperature in the apartment, so that can be uncomfortable. There is a refrigerator and a microwave oven. They leave you 2 towels total and nothing for the kitchen. We were told if we needed more towels, we would have to pay for them. We loved the area, but we would never stay in this apartment again.

Travelocity was created in 1995 through a joint venture between Worldview Systems Corporation and Sabre Holdings. The founding team at Worldview conceived of the idea in 1994 as an extension to their online travel database offering which had been distributed through Sabre, Bloomberg, AOL and many others. The founding team at Worldview joined with distribution partner Sabre in a 50-50 JV that resulted in the development and launch of Travelocity in 1995-1996. The founding members of the Travelocity team, responsible for the conception, development and launch at Worldview were: Steve Baloff (Founder, CEO), Sam Haugh (VP Operations), BD Goel (VP Engineering), Neil Checkoway (VP Marketing), Steve Bengston (VP Business Development), Helen Zia (Editor-in-Chief) and Katherine Chesbrough(CFO). Later in 1996, Worldview's investors (Advanced Publication and Ameritech) sold their stake in Travelocity to a subsidiary of Sabre Holdings and was run by long-time Sabre information technology executive Terry Jones. As one of the pioneers of web-based disintermediation, Travelocity.com was the first website that allowed consumers the ability to reserve, book, and purchase tickets without the help of a travel agent or broker. In addition to airfares, the site also permits consumers to book hotel rooms, rental cars, cruises and packaged vacations.
