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.

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!!
I booked a 3.5/4 star hotel at a great rate, 3 months prior to our New York trip. The trip was a birthday present to my son and it was our first time to the Big Apple. I had not received any communications from Travelocity about any changes but, when we finally arrived at the hotel, we found out the reservation was cancelled by their sister company, Expedia. On our first day in New York, I spent 4 hours on the phone with customer service who kept promising that they would fix it. We were tired and it was late so, we spent double the amount to stay the night at the hotel, who was nice enough to cut their rate in half for us. The following day, I called Travelocity for a follow up and was told a mixture of “you’re booked, you’re not booked” answers. They had not resolved the issue at all and we were faced again with paying double the amount to stay at the hotel. I finally demanded to speak to a supervisor who, after being on the phone for 6 hours this time, was able to book us to another hotel for the remainder of our trip. We couldn’t check in until the next day so, we had to pay for another night at the original hotel. Travelocity did credit us for most of the differences in hotel prices but they made it impossible for us to fully enjoy our vacation! The stress alone was taxing and I will never use them or Expedia again!!
In July 2012, the U.S. Department of Transportation fined Travelocity $180,000 after discovering that Travelocity's “flexible dates tool” did not always include fuel surcharges that were part of many international airfares in violation of the Department's rules requiring all carrier-imposed surcharges and fees to be included in every advertised fare. In addition, the DOT found that the customer was informed only on the final page before purchasing the ticket that some itineraries required a paper ticket with a minimum additional delivery fee of $29.95.
If you're sightseeing, you may only be after a basic hotel, but its location will be crucial to you. Hotels.com gives you detailed maps of the Price area and each landmark and transportation option to allow you to book the cheapest hotel in Price nearest the attractions you actually care about. You can even search outside the city and find budget hotels across Utah.
