Are you going on a trip? There are so many things to consider when booking a hotel stay. There is the actual location of the hotel, the availability of public transport, the proximity to the sites you want to visit, the hotel reviews also play an important factor, and of course there is the price.
Fortunately, everything today is available online. We have compiled a list of online travel agencies that offer accommodation at different price points. So whether you are a tourist or a traveler, we will cover you!
Booking.com since 2014 is ranked 1st among the leading travel agencies in the world (according to Skift). They offer different types of accommodation from high hotels, hostels, apartments and rooms. Customer ratings are displayed on the site and you can search for hotel accommodation depending on your budget, most offers offer free cancellation.
Launched in 1996, Expedia recently acquired Orbitz, another online travel agency. Hotel reservations are only part of Expedia’s business, as they also book tickets, cruises and even car rentals. You can earn “points” by getting an Expedia + card. They also regularly enter into secret deals and discount coupons for those looking for a deal.
The only travel agency based in Asia (Singapore), is among the leading Internet agencies in the world. Agoda.com is constantly increasing its clientele by offering “Best Price Guarantee” in its rooms as well as specialized “flash sales”. Accommodation in Agoda hotels ranges from luxury hotels, inns, beds and breakfasts to resorts.
Although Tripadvisor.com is primarily a review site, it also offers the ability to book hotels. Currently, the site is in the top 2 in the list of the best online travel agencies in the world, also according to Skift. The nice thing is that while viewing the different accommodation offers you can see a price comparison with another site that offers the same hotel. Usually prices on tripadvisor.com are discounted, so it’s cheaper. Also, custom reviews are very helpful.
On Hotels.com you can book more than 325,000 hotels worldwide. Bed and breakfast, taverns and even some apartments are also included in its inventory. They have a lot for regular guests called “Hotels.com Rewards”. Guests staying at least 10 nights receive a discount on the next booking.
For those looking for the quaint charm of bed and breakfast, BedandBreakfast.com is a specialized site that has been around for over 20 years. The site has hot deals and there is a special area for Diamond Collection hotels, which feature chic rooms with breakfast.
Advertising “great deals in hostels everywhere,” the site has 33,000 hostels. And if you sign up for their SmartSavers subscription, you get virtually no booking fees. Ideal for those on a budget, this site has many options.
