Abstract

A system for identifying, comparing, scheduling and purchasing travel-related services. The system is preferably configured for: (1) receiving one or more travel constraints from a user; (2) identifying a plurality of travel itineraries that satisfy at least one of said travel constraints; (3) simultaneously displaying, on a display screen, a graphical representation of each identified travel itinerary and an alphanumeric description of a currently-selected travel itinerary. The user may quickly view the description of any particular displayed itinerary by selecting the graphical representation of that particular itinerary. Once the new itinerary is selected, the system highlights the graphical representation of the new itinerary and displays an alphanumeric description of the new itinerary. The system applies similar techniques in allowing users to define and view the various travel segments (and related travel constraints) that form the basis of the system's search for suitable travel itineraries.
