During our travels, we used several hotel booking engines, airfare engines, Insurance and Housesitting sites. Some of these companies are now affiliates of ours that we have tried ourselves and can now recommend them.
We are always testing out new booking engines, apps, currency exchange sites etc and we will add these to this page as our recommendations. Come back and check this page from time to time to see what new affiliates and partners we have added.
We used 1Cover Travel Insurance in 2013/14 for our 12 month long RTW journey and our 9 months travel in 2015.
Hotel Booking Engines
Booking.com has been a firm favourite of ours right from the very start of our RTW journey. Even prior to this trip we were using them. We have booked many nights with them and now we are at the Genius level where we receive award discounts on many of the hotels listed on their site. They have over 604,000 hotels online.
Agoda.com – the latest special deals on hotel accommodation around the world.
