Travel Sites

According to the World Travel Organization, there are over half a million hotels, holiday rentals, hostels, B&B’s, villas, and holiday apartments around the world. These are advertized on tens of thousands of websites.

To help you navigate this enormous set of options we provide a list of recommended websites. We started with a database of over 3000 travel websites. After careful review we narrowed down the list to a few hundred websites with a proven track record of saving travelers time and money.

HotelsCombined.com / Hotels
HotelsCombined searches other websites such as Booking.com, Hotels.com, EasyToBook.com, and Otel.com and shows the best prices available for accommodation. You can then choose where to book.

HotelsCombined also searches the websites of individual hotels and hotel chains. This can save you even more money as direct bookings from hotels avoid the travel agent commissions.

The database of hotels is exceptionally rich with accommodation options in 220 countries.

The website also aggregates the reviews about different hotels from the various websites it partners with. This increases the number of reviews making them even more reliable.
SellMyTimeshareNow / Timeshares
SellMyTimeshareNow.com is the secondary market leader in online rental and sales of timeshares. Renting a timeshare offers many of the advantages associated with holiday rentals including large space with a living room, a kitchen, and separate bedrooms but at the price of a hotel room. At the same time, timeshare resorts offer hotel-style services including swimming pools and a concierge staff because many timeshares are in large resorts operated by leading hospitality companies such as Hilton, Hyatt, Disney, and Marriott.

The website offers a rich choice of timeshares worldwide. An additional nice feature is that the company provides help via telephone to people who are looking for holiday accommodation. Also, the site lists many last minute deals and gives the option to offer a price lower than the advertized rate for the rental. The flexibility enables renters and owners to find a mutually agreeable price.

SellMyTimeshareNow.com is also an active marketplace for the sale of timeshares, including properties from most countries around the world. The website has been in operation since 2003 and has exceptional visibility on the internet with over 10,000 visits daily by interested timeshare buyers, renters and seller. The site is also a hub of information about various services needed in the process of buying/selling a timeshare such as financing.

Booking is perhaps the most user-friendly accommodation website on the internet. For example, room prices are posted on the list of hotels where one can compare easily. Their “search on the map” is simple and clear. The website is not cluttered with promotions, special deals, etc. that distract the attentions. They specialize in hotel bookings only.

We also like the reviews system on Booking. Only tourists who have stayed at the property are allowed to write a review. In addition, the reviews are cleared after 14 months making them not only reliable but also up-to-date.

Booking lists over 150000 hotels globally assuring substantial choice. They also extend a money back guarantee.

In short, this is a nice, clean, useful website that can serve you well.
FriendlyRentals.com / Apartments

Expedia.com is the largest travel website. It offers many travel products that smaller, more specialized websites do not. The greatest advantage of using Expedia is that you can book packages, most importantly a HOTEL + FLIGHT + RENTAL CAR package.

This is convenient as booking these three items can be done in one place. The process of canceling and amending a reservation is also easier because it is done in one hub.

You can also expect to save money as the commission on packages is smaller.

Because it offers many products in one place, Expedia has a messier structure compared to Booking and HotelsCombined. However, if you need a package, this is the website to use.
