Something we can all agree on is that booking a flight is no easy task. It can often mean spending hours in front of the computer, desperately trying to find the best deal amongst hundreds of competing offers, even for the shortest of journeys. The travel metasearch engine, Skyscanner, is a website that, for me, has transformed this frequently hectic process into a stress-free one.

 

With its simple and easy-to-use interface, Skyscanner has quickly become my go-to for booking flights, whether it’s between London and Chile, or just a quick journey up to Scotland. Not only does it allow you to compare flights across all different airlines, it also allows the flexible travellers amongst us to pick a time to travel depending on when is cheapest. Often, out of mere curiosity, I will select the option ‘Cheapest Month’, choose two different starting points and hit go, just to see where I can fly for under £20.

 

Across no other flight comparison website that I’ve used have I seen this feature and it has proven very useful for me in the past in getting the very best deal. However, Skyscanner is not just a flight comparison website; they also offer the chance to check prices on hotels across a range of different websites, including Booking.com, Expedia and Hotels.com. You can toggle the currency depending on where you’re looking from and filter options on Price, Star Rating and even Cancellation Policy. This last filter has come in useful for me on several occasions when I’ve been unsure of whether I could stay somewhere and needed to find a flexible deal on cancellation. Once again, this is a feature that I am yet to discover with such ease as is offered on Skyscanner.

 

Skyscanner also features a ‘Car Hire’ section, which I am yet to take advantage of but that I imagine works in a similarly effortless way to the rest of the website, by comparing a range of different car hire companies, thus allowing the user to pick the most suitable to their needs.

Pros
  • Simple interface
  • Comparison of hundreds of websites all in one place
  • No pop-up adverts that distract from booking
Cons
  • Susceptible to crashing or won’t allow user to enter certain locations

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?💡📞📧
