When it comes time to book flights, hotel rooms, and other travel-related necessities, I refer to these trusty and price-conscious websites and companies for the best possible experiences at the most reasonable rates.
As a Genius member, I have used Booking.com for dozens of room rentals around the world. Their prices and variety keep me coming back.
Kayak is typically my first go-to flight site where rates are clear and easy to compare. I also use Kayak to set up flight alerts to learn the best time to book my tickets.
Viator's tours, excursions, and day trips help me decide what I want to do and see in a given location. Their activities are always led by well-informed locals.
Feel at home on the road with Clickstay's private home and apartment rentals.
Skyscanner makes it easy to see when the price for flights will be the lowest, and when to bite the bullet and purchase a seat.
Fodor's travel forum is where I begin most trips, by asking other users for tips and suggestions for my ideas and itineraries.
