As someone who travels regularly, I wanted to check out StudentUniverse to see if it was competitive for cheap flights. In an already competitive and saturated market, I am always keen to see if I can save money on my considerable flight expenses by reviewing new websites.

 

Straight away the website tries nudging you towards registering to join the website. I tried searching for cheap flights from Frankfurt to Beijing: firstly, it let me choose to land in “all airports in Beijing”, a good sign. It also lets you choose exact dates vs flexible dates, and asks you how many sites you want to compare flights from (there are 6 options below: OneTravel, Travelocity, Cheapflights, Expedia, Orbitz  & CheapTickets). I would prefer it if it just searched all the available websites without you having to check which ones to search: however, this is a minor annoyance if the website returns good results.

 

Immediately the website returns a matrix which lets you see the prices depending on your departure and arrival dates. This is an extremely useful feature as it stops you having to make multiple searches changing the arrival or departure date one day at a time. I could very quickly see a range of flights in the $600 to $900 range but that the cheapest flight was for $487 leaving on the 16th March and returning on the 23rd March. Given that this is a month away, I felt that this was a very competitive price. It lets you search below by “cheapest, fastest, best” and thus if time is a priority it is easy to search by flights which are direct or have a low layover time. I wanted to see how the booking process worked: no extra fees are added at the last moment for card uses or luggage, and they tell you that the flight can be cancelled for free in the first 24 hours. It is possible to sign up to the website, but also to book as a guest which offers the chance to book a flight quickly without signing up to receiving promotional materials or newsletters. This is useful for anyone with an already congested inbox (ie, everyone).

 

StudentUniverse is a good search engine, and I will definitely use it in the future as it is easy and quick to see transparent, competitive prices for a large range of sites. All in all, it is one of the better flight search sites in the market.

Pros
  • Good prices
  • Guest booking option
  • Quick and intuitive

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.
