Which hotel search website should you use?

There are so many of them, it's easy to go round in circles.  So I suggest these five sites plus www.tripadvisor.com for reviews.  Travel tip:  Booking.com usually allows you to book hotels with free cancellation, so you can reserve accommodation risk-free, even if you can only book your train tickets 90 days ahead.

1.  HotelsCombined.com - search all the booking sites at once...

The Hotelscombined.com system compares prices on all the main hotel booking websites at once, a remarkable site:

Finding the right hotel just got a whole lot easier - HotelsCombined.com

I'm a big fan of www.hotelscombined.com as it checks all the main hotel booking sites (Opodo, Expedia, Booking.com, Hotels.com, AsiaRooms, LateRooms etc.) to find the widest choice & the cheapest rates.  Try it and see!

2. For hotels worldwide, Booking.com    

Of the hotel booking websites themselves, I generally use Booking.com as it has a wide choice, clear information, and useful hotel reviews.

3. For hotels in Italy, Venere.com

Italy is a key destination, and Italian-based www.venere.com has a particularly extensive range of hotels, guesthouses & apartments in even the smallest places.


4. For a touch of class, Mrandmrssmith.com

For something special for an anniversary, honeymoon or romantic break see www.mrandmrssmith.com, which lists hand-picked boutique hotels in major destinations worldwide.

5. For those on a budget:  Hostelbookers.com...

Hostelbookers.com is the place for cheap but safe backpacker hostels in major towns and cities in Europe & worldwide, both dorms and private rooms.

And www.tripadvisor.com for reviews!

www.tripadvisor.com is great for independent travellers' hotel reviews.  It also has the low-down on all the sights & attractions too.
