OpenTable has not only changed the way that people make reservations at restaurants, it has also become a useful tool for deciding precisely where to go.

 

With over 40,000 affiliated establishments, OpenTable combines a simple booking system with user reviews and a whole host of different filters to help make finding the perfect table easier than ever. Its homepage is clean and simple, offering the user the choice of date, time, number of people and location to browse restaurants. Once you’ve filled in your preferences, the website takes you through to a new page where you can view available tables, as well as add in more filters, including price, type of cuisine, specials and seating options.

 

However, what I find the most innovative about OpenTable beyond its booking system is its user review system. Where a website such as TripAdvisor falls down due to its susceptibility to fake reviews, OpenTable only accepts comments from verified diners who have booked a table using via their platform. This makes for feedback that you can have more confidence in, with their ‘100 Best Restaurants’ therefore an accurate guide to the best dining experiences in any given country.

 

Furthermore, you can benefit significantly from the OpenTable Rewards Program that allows users to collect points on certain bookings that can then be put towards discounts on meals or redeemed for Amazon Gift Cards.

 

However, due to the associated costs of setting up as a restaurant with OpenTable, their selection of establishments is limited. In smaller cities, for example, there may only be one or two places that offer the ability to book via the website, while other cities may have none at all. That means that the ‘100 Best Restaurants’ may not necessarily be the best in the city, but rather the best of the ones that could afford the monthly subscription to the service.

Pros
  • Lots of filters to find most suitable restaurant for your needs
  • User reviews only from verified diners increase reliability
  • Rewards Program can lead to significant savings on bookings
Cons
  • Expensive start-up and subscription fees mean selection of restaurants is limited

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.
