Our travel resources post below aims to give you the best and most up-to-date travel tips and deal on the major travel destinations around the world.
As smart travelers, we always plan our trip in advance with the below travel resources. These are websites and tools we personally use to get the best deal and can recommend. We have also included some of our favorite blogging tools. We use these tools all the time and they are crucial in running our travel blog.
We will be adding and expanding to these resources, so before you go on your next trip be sure to check back for the latest updates.
Hotels & Accommodation
We use Booking.com for most of our hotels and accommodation when traveling. It is awesome and reliable for travel in Europe and the US and pretty good in Asia as well. While Agoda is great when looking for hotel booking in Asia. If you prefer to check several websites, Expedia.com is another great option for accommodation deals!
Booking.com sually offers the cheapest hotel deals. But what we like about Booking.com is the Flexible Cancellation Policy. You can reserve your hotel room through Booking.com but pay at the hotel when you check-in or out. So if you end up changing your mind, you don’t have to wait for a refund.
Agoda.com specializes in hotels in Asia and therefore can provide (at times) better deals. Agoda has more hotels and hostels in Asia than any other booking site and is usually among the best rates as well.
Airbnb is a great site for longer rentals. It is a trusted community marketplace for people to book unique accommodations around the world. This site connects you with homeowners who want to rent out their apartment/ home/ rooms. If we plan to stay in a city for more than a week, we will check AirBnB.com to see what is available and what the rates are.
Once I have decided to go on a holiday, I will use the flight search engine to look for the best route and cheapest flight. There are many flight search engines available, and I normally use below flight search engines as there will pick up on a lot of airlines and give me plenty of options with flights deal!
Skyscanner is awesome for finding the cheapest tickets when you are not sure exactly where you want to go. We have come across some unbelievable flight bargains to Tokyo and other places using Skyscanner.
Expedia.com offers a number of flights at extremely affordable rates. It is one of our favorite flight booking sites and we have found that it consistently finds the best rates when comparing prices.
Other Travel Deals
We used Rentals.com for most of our car rental services when planning for road trips. Not only do they provide a great price, but also with good customer reviews and reputation.
Many places can be visited on your own with a DIY itinerary and planning. But some places are best to visit by booking tour due to transport arrangements. If you are visiting popular places especially in Europe, a skip-the-line ticket is a must.
Klook is the leading travel site that provides many day tours and organized activities. They have excellent customer support and the best cancellation policy. They even have a discount price if you are applying the coupon code.
If you are thinking about starting a travel blog of your own, go with the below travel blogging recommendation. We use a lot of tools to help grow our blog, and reach a wider audience, here are some of our favorites.
Hostinger – We used Hostinger for our web hosting because it is extremely easy to set up your first website with their one-click automatic WordPress installation. They have good support when you need some help, and prices are very competitive.
