My Booking Travel Resources

I have several resources I always check before booking my trips.

I use Booking.com for the USA and Europe as well.  I usually choose a hotel if I am looking for hotel amenities and flexible cancellations.

Agoda is my go-to resource for all Asia travel booking. While in Asia, I find Agoda offers the best pricing. Their customer service is good and they have flexible cancellation policies. 

When I travel solo, I like being around other solo travelers. It is much easier to make friends and have travel buddies when you stay in a hostel. Hostel World is the best place to find hostels. 

Finding Airfare


Flights can eat into the bulk of my budget, so I try to be as savy as possible when it comes to booking airfare!  SkyScanner is one of my favorite travel resources!

My favorite feature SkyScanner has is being able to select certain dates or a whole month with the destination of “ANYWHERE”! This shows the best flight prices to fly during the dates I want to leave, which is actually how I pick all my destinations.

Google Flights

If I am on the fence about booking a flight, I go to Google Flights.

This lets me search and select my desired flights and track them. They will also let me know if my flight price dropped or went up.

From tracking flights, I’ve found that many flights hit their lowest point sometime between 25-35 days before the flight.

It’s not always the case of course, but just something you can keep in mind. Because you are able to track the flights,  Google flights one of my favorite travel resources.

Travel Insurance

While insurance is not the sexiest thing to talk about when you travel, it is really important.

In fact, I don’t travel without it. Mainly because I am so accident/sick prone. I’ve been to the walk-in clinic in Thailand, the hospital in Malaysia and I was so happy I had insurance to fall back on.

Insurance is one of those things you never want to use but will be so grateful to have it if it needs to be used.

Not only does it cover medical reasons, but also trip cancellations or even delays. Check out plans to cover your next trip 

BLOGGING RESOURCES

Big Scoots Website Hosting: I love Big Scoots. I’d recommend Big Scoots for serious bloggers since it is a little more on the expensive side.

Bluehost Hosting: I was on Bluehost for 3 years and switched when I was around 25k sessions to my blog. I think they are great for new bloggers.

KeySearch SEO Tool: This is my go-to tool for all my SEO Research. You can even use my discount code “FINDLOVETRAVEL” for 20% off!
