Travel resources

I’ve gathered together my favourite places to book travel on this page. I’ve used all these providers multiple times, so they come with my seal of approval.

Hotels, apartments and other accommodation

I usually book hotels and apartments through – I like how most places to stay have free cancellation and the prices are generally among the cheapest.

For longer stays, I sometimes use as they have a great loyalty scheme – if you stay 10 nights you’ll get another night for free. If you’re staying for a week or so then the free nights can mount up quickly, giving a significant saving on your next trip.

For longer, relaxing stays, is a great choice.

If I’m booking a package that includes flights along with accommodation, then Expedia is always worth a look.

Activities and tickets

Get Your Guide is my favourite place to book activities and tours. It’s easy to search for activities around where you’re staying and there’s lots of detail about what’s included, along with reviews from real travellers.

Viator is another great place to book activities, attraction tickets and guided tours.

If the attraction I want to visit isn’t on Get Your Guide or Viator, then there’s a good chance that it’ll be on Tiqets or, for events, museums and attractions in Italy, Ticketone is worth a try.

I’ve just joined English Heritage and if you’re planning to visit more than one or two of their paid-for sites, it works out as great value.

Airport parking and lounges

Holiday Extras has a great choice of airport car parks, hotels and lounges.
