    In the old days, vacation planning was practically a workout. To land a good deal, you had to keep your eyes peeled for newspaper ads and hit up every travel agency in town. And, once you found the right destination, formulating a decent itinerary meant poring over guidebooks and making notes of what you saw on travel shows. Now, thanks to a myriad of booking sites and travel blogs, we can manage every aspect of our vacation without even getting out of bed. But while there may be less legwork involved, the Internet has created a new problem: With countless sites and online services out there, it's hard to know which ones are actually worth your time — which may explain why the average traveler visits a whopping 38 websites before actually booking a trip.

    To help you cut through the noise, we've identified some under-the-radar travel sites you probably haven't heard of, but which will make the process a whole lot easier. Be prepared to bookmark them all.
