Still a relatively new kid on the block, since its arrival in 2008 Airbnb has changed not only the way people book accommodation, but the way they travel. I only discovered the website three years ago, however I’ve already made countless bookings across dozens of cities, staying in places I never thought I’d ever have the chance to stay in.

 

From condos on the beach to eco-houses located in the middle of forests, there is no limit to what Airbnb can offer, whether you’re travelling for work or leisure. One of my favourite features which was introduced in 2018 is the option to book an Airbnb Plus, which means that not only is the host verified, their accommodation is categorised as being of the highest quality.

 

Another good aspect is the option of ‘Private room’ or ‘Entire place’. This means that, if required, you can keep the price low on your booking by just renting a room in a property that will be shared with other people. Other filters include number of beds, facilities, type of home (everything from pent-house to igloo) and even what languages the host speaks.

 

A list of reviews are available to read before making a booking, and the reviewer has to have previously stayed at the accommodation, making for more reliable and accurate feedback than other websites.

 

One of the only issues that I have found with Airbnb is that it does not give an option to ‘sort by’ price, meaning you are always left to scroll through multiple pages before finding the best deal. Not only this, but if the host is new to the site and therefore has no reviews it makes it difficult to know what the accommodation will be like, particularly if they only have a handful of photos. However, overall it is a magnificent and unique place to find your perfect spot.

Pros
  • Great layout that is easy to navigate
  • Unique offers of accommodation not available on other booking sites
  • Option of ‘Private room’ or ‘Entire place’ to keep prices down if needed
Cons
  • No option to ‘sort by’ a filter, meaning scrolling to find the best deal can take a while
  • New hosts may not be 100% trustworthy

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
