Here at Tara Outdoors, we are all about going on adventures, but you need to know where to go, how to get there, and what’s the best place to visit! We have some of that information here on our own website, but we don’t claim to know it all so instead we’re going to show you 7 of the best travel sites for 2018! These are in no particular order.
One of the best sites for finding your next flight, booking.com has hotels, flights, hotel and flight packages, even car rentals and airport taxis. This is great if you’re trying to find the best deal for your next trip! They even have a pretty cool blog to give you tips about your travel destinations. They include top reasons to visit each city and best of all have reviews from others so you know if you’re making the right choice!
This website is very similar to booking.com but is best-rated as a car-rental site. However, it also includes hotels, flights, cruises, vacation rentals, deals and a lot more. They offer a ton of package deals plus the option to include your own property in the list so you can get noticed! They have some awesome deals and a great app that you can use on the go.
This site is best-known for its flexible planning. It searches multiple travel sites for you and allows you to find the best deals for hotels, flights, and car rentals. It can also help you choose some great package deals. They include cruises in the mix and when you first go to the website they recommend locations for you to visit based on your search history, which is pretty convenient.
This site is very similar to kayak.com in that it searches other travel sites for you but this one is newer and more updated. It is best known for its ability to compare features across travel sites and even searches Airbnb. However, because it is newer it doesn’t have as much available as kayak.com or some of the other travel sites. It does have reviews and all the details you would need in a very easy-to-read format. And while it has a blog it is at the bottom of the page and it doesn’t appear to be very prominent.
This site is another great one when looking for car rentals. Of course, it also has hotels, flights, cruises, and package deals. They also include, on their front page, hotel deals so you don’t miss out when traveling to a specific city. They help you plan your Disney trip and have their own credit card so you can earn rewards anytime you use their site to book for your trip.
One of my personal favorites, this site doesn’t just offer hotels and flights, it also includes things to do in each city as well as restaurants. You can sort by any number of criteria from location, to highest ratings, to lowest prices, and that’s just naming a few. With restaurants, you can even search based on dietary restrictions, time of meal (breakfast/lunch/dinner) and a lot more! I always use this site when planning my trips and you can save places you want to visit or restaurants you want to eat at if you create a free account. Most places listed on this site have a ton of recent reviews so you can plan carefully!
The site I use to book all my hotels when I travel is hotels.com. I have an account with them and earn points every time I stay at a hotel using their site. They have hotel deals or you can get great package deals which include the hotel and the flight. But you can also use the “packages” area to look for things to do in the area where you’re staying. They have a special area for groups which is great if you’re traveling in a large group or going away for business. And finally, they have a gift card section so if you want to give the gift of travel to a friend or family member, they can help you do that!
We hope that we’ve helped you choose your next travel site to head out on your adventure! Let us know in the comments where you went or are going for vacation this summer!
