Tracking travel deals with RSS

Posted by joy

Today’s Sunday NY Times has an article on tracking travel deals via RSS, rather than relying on promotional email newsletters.

While not all sites allow you to track specific fares to destinations, the idea of even tracking promos via RSS is pretty neat. The article explains in simple detail how to aggregate RSS feeds via a customized My Yahoo page.

RSS is slowly becoming more useful to the consumer - it’s not just for “news articles” anymore.

    I use rss feeds in My Yahoo to track a number of things besides news — blogs (yes, including this one), podcast, Flickr photos, etc. — but I don’t how useful it’ll be for time-sensitive deals. …depends on how often Yahoo indexes them I guess.
