Momondo and Skyscanner are our “go to” resources for making sure we secure the best prices when we book travel. As travel fare aggregators, they compare prices on more than 1,000 airlines, so you always get the best deals.
Seat Guru is the place to visit before you book your seats. You’ll get the lowdown on the best (and worst!) seats on any plane.
The Man in Seat 61 is the best resource for train travel, anywhere across the world. Find timetables, trips and information about different classes of travel, before you book.
Our top go-to resources for accommodation are:
Booking.com and Agoda: The easy way to find thousands of hotels and hostels and more.
Airbnb: For a step up from a hostel but more individuality than a hotel, try out Airbnb. We’ve stayed in amazing city centre rooms, a boat and even an ancient but well-maintained campervan!! There’s lots of choice and you might be surprised with the pricing.
If you’ve never used Airbnb before, you’ll get £34 in credit here.
Whether you’re just stepping up to independent travel, or planning a trip to a more “challenging” country, a tour can really help you get to know a destination, feel safe, see everything you want and meet new people.
Get Your Guide: Offers the best range of experiences all around the world – ones you will seriously want to boast about when you get back home again!
Viator: Viator is the place to book tours and travel experiences across the globe. Also great for searching for private tour guides
Explore Worldwide: Over 600 trips to 120 countries, and a wide range of adventure travel options including walking and trekking tours, cycling tours, polar voyages and family adventure holidays. We love love their commitment to responsible travel and that’s why we recommend them
Cruises are an exciting and luxurious way to see multiple destinations within one trip, but it can be bewildering to sort through the multitude of offers.
Cruise Direct: Cruise Direct is your best option, offering discounted cruises to destinations all over the world.
Cruise Direct offer Caribbean cruises, whale-watching cruises in Alaska, river cruises in Europe and beyond, cruises along the mighty Norwegian fjords and more.
You’ll find last-minute deals, low prices are guaranteed and the booking system is easy to navigate.
Travel insurance is top of our travel resources. In our opinion, if you can’t afford insurance, you can’t afford to travel!
We couldn’t imagine traveling anywhere (let alone halfway around the world) without travel insurance from World Nomads.
They cut through the fluff and make it easy to get the travel and health cover you need – just remember to read all the terms and create the package that meets your personal needs.
Importantly, World Nomads have THE most amazing customer service team – when you need help, that’s something that’s worth its weight in gold!
