Finding the best price on your family vacation isn’t always easy. There are so many travel websites, all offering different information. Before you book your next vacation, be sure to bookmark this post and check out these 12 travel deal sites. Also, don’t forget to go through Ebates and BeFrugal to see if there are any cash back deals that you can take advantage of. Be sure to compare prices. Sometimes, it actually ends up being cheaper by booking directly through the hotels and airlines. We also recommend looking at vacation package deals through the airlines, because those can also offer great deals.
12 Of The Best Travel Deal Sites
Cars, Flights, Hotels
Those with flexibility can get some fabulous deals on Priceline. Make sure you read this post with expert tips on how to best use Priceline for your family vacation. You’ll want to know these tips before committing to a price.
Hotwire can also offer fantastic deals – often on different properties than Priceline. Remember that you won’t always know the name of the property that you are purchasing.
I’ve written about Last Minute Travel before – their selection can be limited, but if you find what you are looking for, you can get a great deal. Read the small print to make sure you understand the policies around your purchase.
Looking for a hotel at the last minute? The Hotel Tonight app is a great way to get a same-day deal.
Don’t book a hotel stay without checking Trivago, which aggregates prices across over 250 websites. Check out our full review of Trivago here.
The Hopper app (and website) can tell you when the best time to book flights is. It doesn’t include every airline though, so you’ll want to check those separately.
Flights and Cars
Yapta can help you get the best price on flights and cars and can even tell you when you are eligible for a refund. I’ve used Yapta in the past and gotten money back in the form of a credit when the cost of my flight decreased.
Check out the Bidding for Travel forums to see what deals other travelers have received on the bidding travel sites.
These sites aggregate information from hundreds of sites and show you the best prices.
Looking to book travel insurance? I like InsureMyTrip.com, where you can compare prices from multiple companies.
