The hotel industry is objecting to the proposed merger between online travel booking sites Expedia and Orbitz.
With a little bit of planning, a trip to Europe can be surprisingly affordable.
After a three-day public tiff, American Airlines fares have returned to Orbitz. Orbitz said Friday that it has reached an agreement with the airline to continue selling AA and US Airways tickets on its websites.
American Airlines and US Airways are pulling flight listings from Orbitz after they were unable to reach agreement on a long-term contract.

Federal regulators are weighing whether to make airlines reveal prices for baggage and other fees to online sellers like Orbitz and Expedia.
Some airlines are making travelers work a little bit harder to find a good deal. Carriers are offering more deals to passengers who book flights directly on their websites.

A court ordered American Airlines to post and sell flights on Orbitz again, more than five months after the airline pulled its listings from the website.
American Airlines says the government is investigating whether ticket-distribution systems are violating federal antitrust laws.
Orbitz said that it will vigorously defend itself against a lawsuit filed by American Airlines, a dispute over commissions.
