A group hug for planning services
Planning a group trip with family or friends can have even the most organized among us screaming for the exit door. Enter Triphub.com and Evite.com, which make planning big get-togethers a joy -- well, almost.
What’s hot: It has easy interfaces, which allow you to e-mail invitees, confer with them through a trip blog and keep them informed of developments through a home page.
What’s not: The lodging reservations are powered through Hotels.com, which offers a lot of chains and large hotels but skips many smaller options. Flights are researched on Expedia, Travelocity and Orbitz.
