Tripsget-approved travel resources: where to book hotels, flights & more

If you’re wondering which travel websites bloggers and frequent travellers use to book hotels, flights, cars and more, I’ll be sharing a list of Tripsget-approved travel resources!

Some of the websites will be offering you a referral discount if you use our link (in this case, we get a small referral bonus too – and it will help us to keep this website up and running all the time).

We are actually quite conservative when it comes to using travel websites: we book 99% of our hotels using just 4 main hotel providers. We never had any issues with these companies and hence, we would recommend them.

Which websites do travel bloggers use to book hotels?

Booking.com

Booking.com is our go-to website for booking accommodation. They have the best inventory in Europe and very competitive prices. We usually use Booking.com for shorter stays and cheaper hotels.

Expedia

We use Expedia for longer stays and more expensive hotels that are usually Expedia VIP hotels. We are part of Expedia Rewards (read my full review of Expedia Rewards and whether its worth becoming Expedia Gold rewards member or not) and we often get room upgrades and then redeem points for other hotel stays.

Hotels.com

Hotels.com has a nice loyalty scheme, where you get your 10th night for free. However, we rarely use Hotels.com.

Airbnb 

We use Airbnb, when we are renting a room in a shared flat or we are looking for unique accommodations. If you never used Airbnb before, you can use our referral bonus and you’ll get $20 credit towards your future stay!

Marriott Bonvoy

From time to time, we also book on Marriott website directly, as sometimes they offer special perks if you book on their website (e.g. free dinners or room upgrades).

Flights:

When it comes to flights, we usually use Google Flights to look for flights and compare it with Skyscanner. In 99% of the cases, we either book on the airline website directly or book a flight on Expedia and get Expedia Rewards points.

Some of our favourite airlines include:

British Airways

Easyjet

KLM

Emirates

Qatar Airways

Asiana

Lufthansa

Aeroflot
