Here's a website that can help you keep tabs on travel deals for your favorite destinations around the globe.

» What it does: It's a search tool for discovering travel deals, including airfare and hotels.

» What's hot: The site remembers your home airport, so even if you don't like what you see on your main dashboard of "favorite" destinations, additional travel inspiration is just a click away. On the left navigation bar you'll find topic lists such as "most amazing beaches," "top honeymoon destinations," "foodie cities," "family & kid friendly cities" and more. When you select a list, up pop flight deals from your home airport to a dozen locations. I found the flexible search bar particularly useful when trying to nab travel deals. Deal­scoopr lets you select the departing month, then choose from a variety of start dates (such as traveling on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday, or leaving on any Wednesday in the month) and the approximate trip duration.

» What's not: It's terrific to have a stable of favorite destinations always show on your deals page, but I also wanted to be able to save and compare individual trips. I tried but couldn't see an option for that. However, according to Deal­scoopr, users soon will be able to save and track individual flights.
