BookingBug has a very professional look and a lot of detailed content on its site. There were a couple instances where one would click on a link (i.e. About Us) and get an error in return. However, upon hitting that same link in the footer of the site from the homepage, the reviewer was directed to the correct site. This happened just twice and isn't a really big issue to the overall look and feel, but we felt it was worth mentioning.
