Default Secrets in the Travel Secrets Guide could save you hundreds, even thousands

Airfare consolidators are one of the best kept secrets in the travel
industry. They can save you hundreds, if not thousands on International
flights So, what is a consolidator anyway? Consolidators are companies
who purchase flights in bulk directly from the airlines and then resell
them to travel agents and the public with a slight markup. These
consolidated fares can be as much as 50%, 60% or 70% cheaper than a
regular fare. This guide tells you how to find these low fares and what
to be careful of.
Did you know that there is a way to discover how cheap Priceline.com
will let you bid on a flight or hotel room? In this guide, I will show
you how to use powerful bidding strategies to uncover the best deals
possible on Priceline.com, yielding as much as 50% off hotel rooms and
flights.
Did you know that 1 out of every 500 passengers is bumped (denied a
seat) from a flight, wether they want to be or not? That's over 600,000
people a year that are bumped from their flights. Overbooking flights
is a common practice among airlines. The U.S. Department of
Transportation allows such activity, but monitors its frequency and has
set specific guidelines on how a "bumped" traveler should be
compensated when it occurs. Do you know what to do if it happens to
you? Do you know what your entitled to and how to ask for it?
Did you know that some U.S. airports tack on fees as high as 70% on
your rental car bill? In this guide, I uncover rental car rate
explosion and tell you how to avoid it. I will also reveal which U.S.
state has the highest occurrence of this atrocious behavior.

If those are examples of what the book contains I'd call the title of the
book false advertising - the existence of consolidators and Priceline are
hardly secrets.
