I think you might have noticed I love to travel, especially if you follow me on Instagram and see what I publish almost every day. Of course there is a “behind the scenes” I have never mentioned to you, aka the booking organization. I have never booked a trip through travel agencies and when I did I gave up due to the exorbitant prices they propose. I totally prefer to book everything online and on my own. I think this is way funnier and more exciting because I can plan my trip depending on what’s best for me and start my new adventure with the right foot.
Booking flights and bus trips: Skyscranner and Flixbus
My favorite website when it comes to find the perfect cheap flight is definitely Skyscranner. Usually I start by entering the airport closest to me as departure point and then I choose “everywhere” as final destination. After the results are shown, the most affordable cities are the ones that catch my eyes most of the time, especially if I have never been there.
If I find the destination interesting and convenient, I go straight to the official website of the airline company in question and book the flight there. Ehi flight attendant, here’s my passport! Furthermore, if I want to get around the area I am going to visit and spend one or two days in the surroundings by bus, I mostly go to find something on the Flixbus website.
Hotel or bnb?
Airbnb, Expedia, Booking, Hotels.com
After booking the flight and eventual local travel, it is now time to decide the accomodation. My choice always falls on a hotel or an Airbnb which is good value for money.
Booking, Expedia and Hotels are great sites where to book the best stay, because they include a wide range of Bed & Breakfast, which they offer sometimes a cheaper price compared to the best known Airbnb, although I must stay my favorite place where to stay during a trip still remains Airbnb. I have been a Airbnb guest since 2016, reaching ten housing. Airbnb enables me to be in contact with the locals (the hosts) and to get advice on the city I am visiting!
