Jet-setters, take note: Now you can fly with The Donald.

To be more precise, you can now book your travel plans through a new Web site – – launched on Tuesday by the star of The Apprentice. (The same day, the real-estate developer announced he was suing New York Times reporter Timothy O'Brien for $5 billion, alleging defamation in O'Brien's unauthorized bio TrumpNation: The Art of Being The Donald.)

As for the new site, which is powered by Travelocity, Trump said characteristically at a press conference inside Manhattan's Trump Tower: "There's nobody better, there's nobody even close."

While the site, he says, is dedicated to The Art of the Travel Deal, there are bargains to be found. As dissected by New York's Daily News, a seven-day, six-night February holiday package for two in Miami can be booked through Trump for $937 – a savings of $14 compared to packages found on and a full $73 cheaper than Orbitz.

"Those companies' sites aren't very good," Trump claimed. "The technology isn't as good as ours is."
