I have put together all my favourite travel resources, both websites and services I generally use for all travel planning including flights, rental cars and accommodations. These are the best for price and quality and my first websites to go for booking our travels that I can recommend.
If you find any of my favourite travel resources below helpful, please consider purchasing via the links here as it earns me a small commission, at no extra cost to you, which helps me keep the site advertising free. Thank you for your support! ♥
I first start with Airbnb and analyse quality of accommodations based upon reviews. I will then compare against Hostel or Hotel options to see which type of accommodation is best in the place I am visiting. Some of the services will have strong presence in an area, and hence there is no ranking than checking all. Some destinations like Scotland has it's own chain of B&Bs not listed in any of the above sites. I shall cover such places in respective blogs. So don't forget to check my destination series for that.
All these websites are clever as ad mechanisms on internet to figure out about your travel plans from your search history and then bump prices once it records your search. I recommend to check flight prices in Incognito Mode for this. How I usually do this is check prices from different IP addresses and verify what is the original price. Comparing against all these websites is advised before your booking, as cheap deals differ depending on a particular search.
