Resources

Over the years of active part time travelling I have tried many booking sites. I have came to the conclusion that such things matter when you do a booking:

  1. Price. Although, there is a high competition within the booking sites, price may differ. Always check several sites before booking.
  2. Flexibility. When you book your accommodation/airline tickets, make sure that modifications are permitted. Cheap airline tickets are usually non-refundable (except airport taxes). Hotel reservations are usually refundable/changeable up to 1 day before check-in date. Double check the conditions of modifications before paying for your room.

Below is the list of resources that I use for my personal travel planning.
