Friends and family often ask me how they can get the best deal on travel... and as you can image, saving money on travel often depends on your agent. Therefore, I ask questions to find out how flexible they are with dates and times and hotels. The most flexible travelers can usually save the most money. Getting the best rates does depend on a lot of factors but everyone should start their search in the same place; a travel booking search engine that you trust to help you find and compare rates. You need to be confident that you have found all the best rates and then you can tweak some of the other factors such as day of the week you fly, day of the week you buy, hotel proximity to your destination, etc. How do you decide which travel booking site to use? Which one is the best? Let me tell you I have used them all and my favorite is BookingBuddy!
How to use Booking Buddy
Step 2: Enter your destinations and dates for your next trip then click on the big orange search button
Step 3: Choose the sites you want to use to find and compare rates. I usually pick Expedia (for its ease of use), Priceline (if my travel dates and times are very flexible), and Hotwire. You can pick as many as you like but you have to pick a minimum of four.
Step 4: New windows will open up with the best rates that meet your criteria. This is a huge time saver because you do not have to go to each individual site and reenter your information. Just toggle between the windows and find the best deal. It is that easy.
Not only can you search for flights using Booking Buddy but you can also find hotel deals, rental cars, vacation packages, cruises, and more. Booking Buddy has completely changed the way I search for travel deals so give it a try the next time you are planing a trip. I will be telling all my friends and family to start at BookingBuddy when they ask me what is the best way to find a good deal on travel. I would love to hear about your experience using Booking Buddy and your favorite travel deals site or tips. Please share in the comments below.
