Are you looking to book your travel or checking out the latest deals on travel?
We have been on the road since 2013 and during that time we have booked hundreds of flights, hotels, apartments, car rental, tours and more. We have also used various travel insurance companies. We like to recommend companies that we have used and that we can trust. We have put together a list of those companies for you to assist you in your travel planning.

When booking accommodation we always check hotel reviews on Tripadvisor before finalising the booking. Tripadvisor also compares prices with other hotel accommodation providers.
An alternative to hotel accommodation is Airbnb. Live like a local and stay in unique accommodations around the world. Airbnb now offers experiences for when you visit a new location.
Buy Travel Insurance
It is not worth the risk when travelling and not take out travel insurance. We always say if you can’t afford travel insurance you can’t afford to travel.
For travellers from Australia and New Zealand, we recommend 1Cover Travel Insurance.
1Cover has a range of travel insurance for Australian and New Zealand travellers. Click our link for the latest quote. Please ensure that you always read the conditions carefully on any policy that you purchase.
For travellers from other parts of the world, we recommend World Nomads.
We have used Skyscanner for all our flight bookings. With Skyscanner, you can search for your destination or ‘anywhere’ for the latest deals. They compare millions of flights to give you the best deals!
Book Rental Cars
Over the years we have tried a few car rental firms and we always come back to AutoEurope for their best prices on car rentals.
Book Tours & Attractions
Our ‘go to’ tour company for booking tours and attractions is Get Your Guide. We have used them on numerous occasions in Asia and in Europe. Whether it is a Harry Potter tour in London or skip the line ticket to the Eiffel Tower in Paris Get Your Guide has you covered.
We love their ‘best price guarantee’ which means if we find the same activity by the same local tour operator in the same currency for less they will refund the difference. Currently, they offer over 35,000 activities in over 7,600 locations.
