Despite its lack of rewards programme, Travelocity is an effective website for booking accommodation that will fit all your requirements. Owned by Expedia, it offers an easy-to-use mobile app that can be used while on the go to find the best hotels and hostels wherever you wish to stay.

 

Even if I intend to stay in a hotel, I always like to check out the cost of staying in a hostel in the same area and Travelocity is perfect for this, displaying the two side by side in an easy to navigate format. This means that if you are travelling as part of a group, you can see the availability of dorm rooms if you’d prefer a cheaper option to a hotel.

 

Like Expedia and Orbitz, there is also the option to add a flight or a car to your booking, meaning you have all your travel needs in one convenient place. Filters on aspects such as amenities, guest rating and neighbourhood are plentiful, while a pop-up offering 10% off using a coupon code means you can always find a great deal on bookings.

 

Another feature includes the ability to be able to compare prices across different booking sites, such as Expedia, Hotels.com and Hotwire. This allows for greater transparency when making a reservation and the feeling that you’re getting the best deal available. As mentioned above, Travelocity does not have its own rewards programme, which is something that may put off frequent travelers. Nevertheless, its easy to use platform and wide-ranging booking options make it one of the best sites for finding accommodation, particularly when using the mobile app download.
