These websites can help you get the best place to stay during your travelling. If you are either looking for luxurious hotels or cheap hostels, you can easily find them here!
Agoda is well-known reliable booking site in Asia. I have used this platform, I can’t recommend this amazing portal highly enough.
AirBnB is a perfect alternative way of finding accommodation, especially in Europe. I personally used this and I loved it. It gave me the chance to feel home away from home.
Booking.com is useful for finding cheap deals across the world. What I enjoy most is the long-range option of their reviews ratings. You can easily which hotel is good for meeting people or which one has great locations.
HostelWorld is the young traveller’s best buddy. They have large compilations of affordable hostels around the globe.
