WorldChoiceTravel or USAHotels Since our birth April 1, 1996 Carnaval.com has been committed to bringing you a choice of travel options which represent good value offered by reputable travel specialists. WorldChoiceTravel or USAHotels has recently been rated the #1 Travel service by Gomez Advisors Their strong commitment to making you loyal Carnaval.com travel shopper as well as a many features beginning with same 53,000 hotels TravelNow once offered from the Sabre and Pegusus databases. As of March 13, 2001 TSI the world's largest cruise distributor has acquired WorldChoice. We believe this will be a good thing for all concerned more .... 

  Expedia is fast and can be the last to have available rooms on sold out dates at marked up prices. Their brand is known throughout the world which can be helpful if you did not get what your purchased. For example the pool is out of commission but the hotel operator has a better property with a pool.  Expedia Special Rate hotels offer discounted rates for over 1,800 hotels in over 250 destinations and a low price guarantee Expedia Hotels at Epinions


The Online Reservation System with a Difference HotelQuest is a real time reservations network of thousands of hotels that provide discount rates. The inventory is controlled directly by managers in each hotel.

Accommodation Search Engine http://www.ase.net part of hotels.com
 Over 155,000 registered accommodations from 5* luxury hotels to beach huts in 220 countries worldwide makes this the web's largest hotel database.
 Two very cool tools
Selecting just the country results in a list of Cities to select from which seems basic but is rarely found just yet on the web. Second you can peruse multiple web sites including the properties own . The distance from City center seems to be missing on many or in the works when we tested it but is also a key tool.  This is one of the web's best hotel research tools. Most properties featured seemed to come from the 35,000 Pegusas data base with the same data becoming familiar as served up by TravelNow, PlacesToStay,  discountHotels.com,  Small hotel favorite Inntopia is here as well. While best deals are likely found elsewhere this is currently a premier tool for searching for accommodation options farther afield and quite helpful whether your searching for a bargain or planning a dream vacation.
  It is free to register an accommodation with ASE.net and/or create a free web page for your hotel property.
