  • Airbnb
    For Hotel Bookings. It has a wide range of hotels at cheaper prices plus you have the ease to cancel or change your booking at no cost for a certain time period.

We use Airbnb for apartments and vacation rentals. We love this unique platform for many reasons! Firstly, it’s way cheaper than all other accommodation options. Secondly, it gives you an awesome opportunity to connect with locals. Living like a local in a foreign country has its own highs.

Lastly, I appreciate the way you end up being friends with your Airbnb hosts. We’ve made so many friends around the world through Airbnb!

FINDING CHEAP FLIGHTS

We love Kiwi.com. It helps you compare all possible flights for the destination and then book. It makes it super easy to fly for cheap.

Also, if you are flexible in terms of dates and destination, “everywhere” option lets you see where and when you can fly for less.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

There’s no question that if you are traveling internationally, you do need a travel insurance.

We use and thus, recommend World Nomads to everyone who loves to travel the world like us. It not only gives you wider coverage but also helps you report claims simply and easily.

TOURS AND ACTIVITIES

For day trips, we recommend Get Your Guide. They literally have city tours and day trips all over the world. 

From city tours and attractions, hotels, transportation to local sim cards, and phono data, Klook takes care of everything. We used their services for our trip to Singapore and can assure you that they deliver the best.

We traveled with Viator quite a few times and loved everything about it. It’s best for booking day trips and multi-day tours. It’s easy to book with them, and the communication is seamless. I particularly loved our day trip to Montenegro from Dubrovnik with them.

Don’t forget to ask for the first-timer discount if you happen to use the company’s services for the first time 馃檪

Tour Radar makes travel easy and cheap for travelers all around the world. It specializes in multi-day tours. You can choose the tour that best fits you and then check the reviews by travelers before booking.

Airbnb Experiences offers unique activities and adventures hosted by locals. It’s different in the sense that you get to see the place from the eyes of a local.

TRANSPORT

RentalCars.com is hands on the best for all your car rental needs! We used excellent services of rentalcars.com while road-tripping Europe and loved them to the core. It allows you to search for multiple rental cars from all the available car rental companies to find the best deal ever.

12go.asia offers online bookings for all sorts of transport – bus, ferry, train, transfers, and even flights – all your transportation needs are taken care of here! It mainly operates in Asia, Caucasia, and Oceania.
