Top Booking Tips and Tricks 

Apart from checking out the best booking sites. Quite a few tips and tricks can help you to get cheap deals. 

My best booking tips and tricks for you are:

  • Many tourist regions have their own hotel, house and appartment booking website. On these sites the offer may differ from more general search engines and sites. The same accomodation can also be offered cheaper since less commissions have to be remitted. Check out if your destination has such a local booking site. Most of the time these sites can't afford a huge budget on (online) marketing, so do no hesitate to click a bit further in your search results.

  • Popular destinations are often much more expensive than some lesser-known ones. Booking an "out of the box" destination can save you a lot of money. It can also keep you away from the big crowds.

  • Sunday flights are the cheapest! Several large-scale studies have shown that booking a flight on Sunday is a smart way to get a good price. 

  • Try to avoid the high season. If you don't necessarily have to go in high season, there are plenty of reasons not to: lower prices for booking travel and lodging, more choice, cheap tours and less crowds. 

  • Once you have a shortlist of hotels that you might want to book, always check if these hotels also have their own booking site. Check if you can book your room even cheaper directly or if more options are offered. The same goes for airline tickets. You can often book directly with any airline.

  • Try different lengths of stay and dates. It can make a big difference if you arrive and leave on slightly different days.

  • On average, it is cheapest to book an airline ticket 8 weeks in advance (based on a survey of 250 million airfares).

  • Click through the booking process as far as the point of payment to see the actual, final price with any surcharges or fees.

Enjoy booking your best and affordable trip easily, with this handy overview!
