With hundreds of travel websites out there, it can be tough to know where to book your trip. These are my favorite travel booking websites — tried and true, so you don’t have to wonder. I never recommend a company I don’t trust, so if it’s on the list, I guarantee it’s a reputable site.

Google Flights – Before booking something, I always check the calendar function in case changing my travel dates can save me hundreds!
Orbitz – Orbitz is my favorite site for booking airfare because you earn Orbitz Rewards on every purchase that you can redeem for future trips. Plus, it’s simple to book and you can cancel in one-click if you need to.
Hint: You’ll earn more Orbitz Rewards by booking through their mobile app.
Booking.com – This site is an extremely simple way to find and book great properties all over the world, usually with fully flexible reservations and realistic reviews.
Hostelworld – I love to stay in hostels when traveling solo to meet other travelers, and Hostelworld’s database and booking system keeps things easy.
I also try out all sorts of “flavor of the week” hotel booking sites: these are the ones that offer you a discount on your first stay, but don’t have a lot of incentive to continue booking with them. If you’re just looking for a great deal and are willing to try something new, check them out!
Celebrity – I’ve cruised with four cruiselines, and Celebrity blew everyone else out of the water (pun intended). Better food, better service, good value.
Best of luck planning and booking your next trip!
