Flight Bookings.

travel resources

Probably the largest flight booking platform in the world. It’s great because it shows a calendar of prices per departure day. So you can choose the cheapest option if your dates are flexible.

Similar to Google Flights, but it also searches the smaller airlines for domestic flights. I just love the “everywhere” function. This will show you specials from your departing airport. 

Accommodation Bookings

WayAway provides travelers with the best rates on airline tickets. Users can also purchase the WayAway Plus membership plan, which gives cashback on flights, accommodation, car rentals, tours, and more.

Hostelworld is a global hostel-focused online booking platform. Inspiring passionate travelers on a smaller budget to see the world. They have more than 13 million reviews on over 17,000 hostels in more than 179 countries.

Also offering an accommodation platform which compares rates from various sites showing you the best rate. It would be a good idea to compare Skyscanner to Booking.com

Booking.com probably has the most inventory in the world. If you are a regular client you will have a higher “Genius” ranking and benefit from greater discounts. 

Excursion Bookings

Get Your Guide helps travelers find the best things to do wherever they’re headed, including skip-the-line tickets to the world’s most iconic attractions. Maybe a good idea to compare their prices to Viator.

Big Bus Tours is the world’s largest operator of open-top bus sightseeing tours. They currently operate in 23 cities across the globe. The tours incorporate the top sights of each city and travelers can hop-on and hop-off at major landmarks.

Tiqets is the largest online ticketing platform in the world. Tiqets offers directly bookable, instantly available, and completely mobile tickets for museums, shows, and attractions all over the world.

Travel Insurance

Insubuy has been in business for over 20 years. It is currently the largest provider of visitors insurance which provides medical coverage as well as emergency medical evacuation, repatriation of remains and travel-related coverage.

VisitorsCoverage is a Silicon Valley-based insurtech company which provides travel insurance for millions of global travelers in over 175 countries.

Transportation

The leading authority and market leader for cruise information. Cruise Critic features reviews of 700 cruise ships, including ocean, river, luxury and expedition vessels.

Rail Europe is probably the leading distributor of European rail tickets. They provides access to an array of rail services from over 50 European train companies.
