A great way to save on travel is to research the best deals before you go. There are many travel websites so how do you know which one to use? It depends what you are searching for. If you are looking for a vacation rental Airbnb is the place to start. For hotel, airfare, and rental car I always start with BookingBuddy because it searches the top travel websites for you and pulls the best deals available.
Vacation rentals are becoming a popular choice for today's traveler because of the flexibility they can offer. Vacation rentals come in a variety of options: budget studios, luxury highrise apartments, cottages and cabins, and bed and breakfast inns. Vacation rentals also offer flexible length of stays from overnight to monthly to accommodate the tourist as well as the business traveler. You can find rentals in just about any location that you would expect to find a hotel and also in out of the way places that offer unique opportunities to experience the local culture and customs that is just not possible when you stay in a chain hotel.
Airbnb is one of the best vacation rental sites and offers great deals on rentals of just about every type you can imagine. Some examples of the wide range of lodging possibilities are: a sailboat in Seattle, Washington, a charming Bed and Breakfast in Rome, Italy for $48/night, a Beach Cottage in Pacific Grove, CA for $125/night, Central Paris Apartment for $89/night, Venice Italy Bed and Breakfast for $44/night. A great way to make travel even less expensive is to rent out your place while you are on vacation.
BookingBuddy is one of the better travel comparison sites because it compares prices from the top travel sites such as Priceline, Expedia, and Hotels.com for you. That can save you a lot of time when searching for travel deals. By booking your rental car on BookingBuddy you can also compare car rental prices for some of the best deals on the internet. You can also combine airfare, hotel, and rental car reservations and save even more.
