In accordance with the present invention, a method for providing reservation information related to airline flights, lodging, transportation and the like using a communications network is disclosed. In one embodiment, access to a server machine is divided into sessions. During a first session a user machine makes a first request for reservation information from the server machine. This first request includes input data from a first customer which relates to the desired reservation information. For example, the first customer may input travel times in the hopes of booking a flight which corresponds to those times. The server machine requests the reservation information from a number of target sites based upon the input data. Included in the number of target sites is a first and second target sites. The server machine obtains reservation information which includes first and second reservation information respectively from the first and second target sites.
