A lot of people think they’ll never be able to travel because it’s too expensive. However, in reality, there are incredible deals happening all the time – you just have to know where to look. Here are some of the websites I use for deals, tips and expert advice.
When it comes to finding flight deals, I tend to use four websites in particular: Skyscanner, HolidayPirates, Airfare Watchdog and Secret Flying. Each one offers a newsletter subscription service, so you can have the very best flight deals delivered directly to your inbox as and when they become available.
It’s important to stay up to date with changes in the travel industry, as well as news alerts and things like loyalty programs. View from the Wing and One Mile at a Time are great sources for this kind of information.
Finding the right accommodation is a huge part of planning a trip. Airbnb has become the go-to holiday rental finder for most people, including me. However, I also use Expedia and booking.com to find the very best rates among hotels and hostels.
If you’re looking for something to do, Busabout has plenty of fairly priced hop-on/hop-off bus itineraries to choose from, spanning Europe, Asia and Morocco. While small group adventure company Intrepid Travel offers more than 1,500 itineraries in over 100 countries.
