Favorite Travel Sites

Favorite travel sites hero

Yay! I’m super excited to share my favorite travel sites with you. This is me telling all and hoping that you still need me and my blog afterwards. Just remember the little people, okay?

Yes, I 1000% use these sites regularly and know them all to be reputable, reliable companies. I stand by every recommendation on this listing. I can even offer you discount codes for some of them. Questions? Reach out.

If you like my favorite travel sites, hop over and check out my favorite travel gear and apparel, too. 

Travel Planning

  • Lonely Planet: One of my all-original favs. I use the practical country information and Thorn Tree Forum often. Also great for pictorial books!
  • Rough Guides: Another great informational site. Gorgeous photography. They have an interactive map feature, too, which is pretty cool.
  • Rome2Rio: Rome2Rio is my favorite logistical site. Need to get from Point A to Point B? This site will tell you all your options and all the prices.
  • Tripadvisor: I use Tripadvisor for everything. Their forums are super helpful, and I’m a big fan of their hotel rankings system.


  • Bahn: I use Bahn for almost all of my train bookings in Europe. The site is extensive and they have great customer service.
  • Kiwi.com: A reputable flight booking site, though they really do everything. I love their Nomad travel tool, which allows for multi-city planning.
  • Google Flights: Google Flights is the perfect wanderlust site. Plot travel anywhere and see what time of year and what trip length is cheapest.
  • Orbitz.com: Another booking site for everything. Orbitz offers Orbucks rewards, which is nice when you’re trying to save money here and there.


  • Agoda: Hotels, resorts, hostels and more. Get the best prices on 2 million+ properties worldwide.
  • Vrbo: Rentals for all your vacation needs—individual, family, small group, pet-friendly…

Vacation Packages

  • Gate 1 Travel: Love Gate 1 and highly recommend it. I like their independent trips, but I’ve heard really good things about their escorted tours, too.
  • TourRadar: TourRadar also has a lot of good deals, particularly in Europe. Younger, trendier, less expensive tour option. Flights not included.
  • Intrepid Travel: Intrepid usually has really good deals. Sustainability is very important to them! Please note that flights are not included.

Day Tours

  • Big Bus Tours: Discover the great cities of the world. Make hop-on/hop-off sightseeing the number one thing to do on your city break.
  • Viator: Tours for everything. Sign up for their newsletter to get 10% off.
