The Best Websites for Cheap Travel Deals and Holiday Discounts

Many people today still believe travel is unaffordable. But I love helping people to save money on travel and take more trips as a result.

By now, most of my friends know that I never pay over the odds for my trips and I have to say, I quite proud of my talent for getting seriously cheap deals! Really, I’m just super stingy and don’t like parting with my hard-earned cash, and when it comes down to it, the more money I save on each trip, the more trips I can take each year.

Because of my super stinginess, I frequently get asked by friends to help them book their trips, or to help them save money on travel. And I’m always so happy to lend a hand!

But it occurred to me a while ago that despite knowing exactly where to look for the cheapy-cheap deals, I’ve never actually shared the travel websites I use on my blog. So, without further ado, here are my trusted go-to websites that enable me to save as much dough as possible!

  1. Great post! I knew about some of these, but definitely just got a whole lot of inspiration for next time I go travelling 🙂

  2. Great list! I have heard from so many people that they love SkyScanner like you. However, I find that it isn’t that helpful and I think I must be using it wrong! If you have any suggestions, that might be a nice follow up post. I would especially love to know if there is a good way to set up SkyScanner to just let you know about any cheap flights from your airport at any time.

    1. Hey! Skyscanner is really the only site I use for flights. There are so many great features, i.e. you can search your nearest airport and choose to view the cheapest flights to any destination across the entire year, entire month or using specific dates to find flights. You’re right, it would make a great follow up post! Thanks for inspiration!

  3. I’ve been using kayak for years and it is still my go-to site to search and compare airline prices. I haven’t heard of Hopp, so I’m gonna check that out!

  4. Great list! I use a lot of these websites too and think they are great. I am loving the booking.com discount, I have gotten a nice bit of cash back from also sharing my code! Thanks for sharing your tips!

  5. Great list Zara and thanks for sharing! Not everyone is comfortable sharing their travel secret 😉 I am very curious about trying out holiday pirates.. see what they can do for my next travels.
