Although most well known as a website for booking flights, Expedia also offers an easy to use interface for booking accommodation as part of its package. On its homepage it gives you the option to ‘Sign up for member prices’ and ‘save up to 10% on thousands of hotels’, a feature that may come in handy if you are a frequent traveller.

 

When entering the details of your stay – such as destination, check-in date, and number of travellers – you are also asked whether you want to ‘Add flight’ or ‘Add car’. For me, having the ability to sort everything in one place is something that has come in use on numerous occasions and helps particularly when under the pressure of time. You don’t want to be scrambling around with multiple tabs open on your laptop if you have to book a flight, a hotel and a rental car for the following day. With Expedia, it’s all in one place, making for an easier time.

 

Once you’ve entered all your preferences, the website takes you through to a new page where you can add further filters to find accommodation most suited to your needs. A feature that I like about Expedia that sets it apart from other similar websites is that under each property, in green, it tells you about some of the ‘free’ options included, and not just the breakfast. ‘Free bottle of wine’ and ‘Free spa access’ have, in the past, helped me make a decision about where to stay and, on both occasions, these were nice and clearly advertised on Expedia.

 

The site is very keen to promote their member benefits, which can be slightly annoying, however for the most part they do not distract from reserving accommodation relatively effortlessly. All in all, a great website for booking a place to stay.

Pros
  • Option of booking accommodation, flights and rental car all in one place
  • Detailed descriptions of accommodation and rooms
  • Photos well presented and easy to view
Cons
  • Unlike Tripadvisor, the website only offers their own pricing which is not always the cheapest available
  • Over promotion of member benefits which can be irritating when trying to find a place to stay

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.
