I’ve been travelling for over 25 years. In that time, I’ve narrowed down the companies I love working with and have even discovered some new one that have surpassed my expectations since travelling full time. These are the brands listed below.
If you’re looking to book your next adventure, try one of the brands listed below. Not only are they great brands, but I’m proud to be affiliated with these brands. That means that for every adventure you book through the links below, I make a little money to keep this business going. It’s no additional cost to you, but boy it means a lot to me if you use it. It means I can continue providing great content to you.
I have used Booking.com for so many trips.
From Santa Fe in the United States, to the Great Ocean Road in Australia.
We’ve always found them easy to use and trouble-free. Better yet, they are always honest in their accommodation representations.
If you haven’t tried them yet, maybe now is the time?
I LOVE Skyscanner.
I have been using it for months now and it’s a great search engine for flights, hotels and cars. I’d consider it’s the best out there. It searches multiple agencies and gives you the best price and when I’ve checked elsewhere, it’s usually the best deal around.

Who hasn’t used Expedia to book their travels? Expedia has provided me with budget-friendly options every time I’ve researched a getaway. I can’t tell you how many trips I’ve booked using Expedia. (TONS!)
I’m so proud to be affiliates for Expedia. They are a trusted format with experienced customer service behind them. And they’ve saved my ass quite a few times too!
I hope you use this link to book YOUR next trip away.
Who doesn’t love TripAdvisor?! (We love it so much that we’re classified in the Top 2% of Contributors by TripAdvisor.)
We’ve been using this resource for years. We’ve found great bargains and hidden gems each and every time we’ve used it. From hotels, to restaurants, to interesting things to see/do along the way. I love TripAdvisor.
It’s invaluable when travelling.
PLUS: Since we’ve been contributing ourselves over the years, we’ve earn ourselves a Top Contributor badge.
Have you have tried AirBnb?! It’s awesome!
We’ve used it a few times now and been delighted every time. More often than not, we’ve even found them cheaper than hotels. With that, you get a full house/apartment to use with all the amenities and less than you would for a hotel room. And when you’re a full time traveller or even someone traveller for more than a week, the use of a washing machine & dryer is priceless!
Need more incentive to try AirBnb? Here’s a credit for your first stay. Simply click on the link and the credit is yours to use for your first AirBnb experience.
Wotif is one of Austalia’s most popular booking sites for last minute getaways. I’ve found some great finds with Wotif!
Everyday Deals: Anytime, everyday you can find the perfect travel deal for your next trip. Including ‘Mates Rates’.
Local Knowledge: Millions of hotel reviews from Aussie travellers and a wealth of local knowledge.
Everything Travel: Search, plan & book – flights, hotels, packages, activities and car hire … all here.
Just looking for a hotel room? Hotels Combined have you covered. I’ve used them a few times now and really like their site.
As their website says, “Compare all the top travel sites in one simple search and find just what you’re after.” Too easy. “No booking fee, no mark-up.” Awesome! “Over 307 million travellers trusted us to ﬁnd the best deal on their hotels last year.” Us included.
Compare 900 companies at over 53,000 locations. Best price guaranteed. Rentalcars.com connects you to the biggest brands in car hire.
When doing a search for a car rental, I keep coming back to Rentalcars.com. They provide the competitive pricing I am looking for and I trust their brand. I love choices.
A global leader in car rental, Europcar has more than 3,300 car hire locations throughout Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia-Pacific in about 150 countries.
I’ve found Europcar to be one of the easiest rental car companies to work with. Pick up and drop off is always smooth, the staff is always accommodating, polite and dare I say – human. They chat, they help, they recommend. When I rented in Cairns, the woman at the pickup counter told me of some amazing swimming holes that are mostly known to locals. Not only friendly, but the cars are always new and very reliable.
