What are the best methods for this type of survey?

What sort of survey are my colleagues planning? It would involve questionnaires dropped off at a variety of businesses (tour agencies and hotels, mostly), aimed at capturing details about their clients. This doesn't seem to fit the examples I see discussed in online resources on survey methods. To top it off, both the time frame and budget are limited. Where can I find best practices for this sort of survey--and how can I determine which best practices should be given highest priority? [more inside]

Online survey tool recommendations

Half the blogs I read have links to the Blogads survey today, which reminds me that I've been meaning to do a readership survey for one of my sites. There are a plethora of web sites offering survey tools (if this page from SurveyMonkey, which is doing the Blogads survey, is any indication); which one(s) would you recommend? (Free or very nearly so is preferred, natch.)

Online survey creator tips?

Can anyone advise me which is the best online survey creation site to use? I need to send a questionnaire to a group of customers I work with. But many of the online survey systems I've seen on Google seem to charge a large one-off or annual fee, whereas I'm looking to pay just a smaller fee (under $50) for one survey. Any recommendations?

Additionally, is there any good sites for checking which of these sites are scams and which are legit?
