There are a great number of sites you can use to book travel on the internet. Which site or sites you use depends on your style of travel, how much in advance you are booking and where you are going. Below or some sites you should know about and how to use them.

Hotels

  • Hotelscombined.com – I just started using this using this site but I like it because it is a meta search site (that means it searches a lot of the other sites all at once and lets you compare them).
  • Roomkey.com – Roomkey is only recently on my radar but I like what they are doing. They will find cheaper rates for hotel rooms, but the catch is that the you have to be in the hotel’s loyalty program. But since joining the loyalty program is free you should join anyway.
  • Booking.com – The leading hotel booking site worldwide but mostly used outside the United States.
  • Expedia.com – The leading hotel booking site in the United States.
  • Hotels.com – One of my favorite hotel booking sites. Book 10 nights and get a night free.
  • Priceline.com – One of the leading booking sites. Priceline still does their “Name Your Price” but you can also book hotels without the auction process.
  • Venere – An Expedia property that is particularly good for Europe. Merged into Hotels.com
  • tingo.com – Tingo is a newer hotel booking site from TripAdvisor that allows people to book early for their vacation then get money back if the hotel rates drop.
  • Agoda.com – Good booking site when you book internationally

Hotel Bargains

Hostels

  • Hostelworld.com (US)  – the two leading hostel booking site since it merged with hostelbookers.com.
  • Hostelz.com – Offers hostels in more than 54,178 listings in 9,534 cities
  • TripAdvisor – leading hotel review site, but now also supports direct booking for a growing number of hotels

Last Minute Hotel Deals

Last Minute Timeshare Rentals

  • SellMyTimeshareNow.com – offers high-end resort timeshare rentals available to book online at up to 70% off. Check-in dates are within 60 days.
