Johnny Jet

Johnny Jet is in Toronto. This week's travel site is SaferCar.gov, a US Government site for checking if your rental car has any recalls. Input the VIN number and it will tell you if there's any recalls. Then you can advise your rental car agency you want another car because it's illegal to rent a car that's being recalled.

This week's website ... Clever Layover. It enables you to do a search for an affordable last minute ticket. According to Clever Layover, the average user saves $200. But you have to be careful because they usually are low fare airlines that nickle and dime you to death with fees.

Another website ... Adioso. Perfect site to search for destinations where you don't really know where you want to go.

Deal of the week - LA to Bangkock $599 on China Airlines. Check out JohnnyJet.com for details.

This week's app is Postagram. It allows you to create post cards digitally and be able to mail them through your phone. Leo says he's used it and loves it. He wishes it were the full postcard, but it's just half the postcard. Other than that, it's quite convenient.

This week's website is GoSeek.com. It not only looks for hotels, but also coupons and discount rates.
