Airfare Watchdog is another good airline comparison service but what they also offer is the opportunity to receive alerts straight to your inbox if the price of airfare you are looking at drops which is very helpful.
Hotels.com is a great resource for finding the best deals on accommodation. Hotel room prices are always much lower on this site than they are booking directly through the hotel. In addition, they have a loyalty program that rewards members with a free one night stay for every 10 nights booked.
Booking.com is another good choice to search for lodging options. They have over one million properties including hotels, hostels and apartments and a lot of times they differ from those offered on hotels.com.
Airbnb is a good way to experience the world like a local. You can either book a whole house or stay in a room with a host. Airbnb is a good site to find unusual lodging options like log cabins and glamping type stays. If you haven’t used Airbnb you can sign up to get $40 off your first nights stay.
