10 Sites For The Best Airfare Deals

You're either trying to find a last-minute ticket to make it in time for a meeting, or hoping to get to a remote island as cheaply as possible. Some trips are regular, essential and planned far in advance, like visiting the family for Christmas; while other trips — spending time with that long-distance significant other — are flexible on dates, but can break your wallet if not purchased strategically.

Priceline launches new venture to invest in startups beyond travel

The new venture, technically not a separate fund, is fully financed by internal Priceline money, and run by Glenn Fogel, the Worldwide Strategy and Planning head for Priceline. According to Priceline, this new venture, founded earlier this year, will invest in “growth companies around the world that may be too small or early in their development to be acquisition candidates but are working in areas of substantial interest to the Group.” Which means companies anywhere from early to later stage startups — not necessarily directly involved in travel — in sectors such social marketing, mobile tech, local consumer market and analytics. Amounts range from as small as one million dollars (or even smaller for attractive seed rounds) to significantly larger sums — we’ve heard up to $20 million, though the company won’t confirm that.
