Our Top 5 Sites for Booking Flights and Accommodation

Planning on booking flights and accommodation?  Knowing which site to book through can be difficult decision.  With so many options out there its hard to know if you are getting yourself the best deal available at the time.  I know we have definitely come across a better price after making a booking, and when you do, you can’t help but feel a little ripped off!

In no particular order, these are the top 5 sites we find ourselves searching time and time again when planning our next adventure.

1. Skyscanner

skyscanner app-icon Skyscanner is a great site to compare hundreds of airlines, across millions of routes.  We love the ‘search anywhere’ function to search for affordable destinations when we can travel.  They link you directly to the airline or travel agent and there are no hidden charges or added fees.  So you should be getting the best deal every time.  They also claim to find the cheapest hotels and car hire too though we haven’t tried these out just yet.

2. Booking.com

3. Agoda

4. Hotels Combined

Save on your hotel - www.hotelscombined.com HotelsCombined compares all the top travel sites in one simple search to help you find just what you’re after.  They do not charge a booking fee or mark-up.

5. Airbnb
