I’ve planned and booked a lot of trips all over the world and the companies listed below are the exact ones I use when I travel. I’m a firm believer in them and that’s why they are listed. They are the best out there, and continually offer the best deals. Check back here before your book your trip for the latest updates.
Another good accommodation alternative, this site connects with homeowners who rent out their homes/apartments to you. You’ll get all the comforts of home, the chance to stay in a local, non-touristy part of where you are going, and pay a fraction of the cost of a hotel room. (If you’re new to Airbnb, get $35 off your first stay!)
An amazing website for accommodation in Asia. This should be your primary accommodation website for guesthouses and hotels in Asia. They have the most robust inventory and offer the best rates. When I travel around Asia, I don’t use anyone else.
Booking.com provides great resource and booking site for cheap hotels and other accommodation. I like their easy to use interface too, wide selection, and no money down policy. They are especially good for listing in developing countries.
