These travel sites have the basics (customer service, hotel quality, dependability) right, with the bonus of offering great deals for hotel rooms. So if you’re looking to save on price but not on quality, this list should be for you.
The reason we’ve picked out five is that depending on your holiday destination, each of these sites may offer the best price. We know it’s tedious, but we found these 5 sites to be consistently above the rest. All that’s left if up to you!

Booking.com compares hundreds of hotels and gives users the option to filter by ratings, prices, and even fun things to do in the area. The site highlights hotels that allow free cancellation and hotels that allow you to book without prepayment. This is especially helpful for budget travelers because it allows you to book and pay at the hotel, giving you time to save up for the hotel payment.

I like to always take a look at hotel bookings on Agoda.com when I’m traveling for the following reasons:
- Many times Agoda will have a room available while other travel websites like bookings.com or expedia.com are fully booked.
- The rates on Agoda.com can be cheaper compared to the other travel websites.
- Hotels may be listed on Agoda.com but not on other travel websites, especially when booking for hotels in Asia.

Expedia owns Travelocity, so this flight booking site basically gives you Expedia price results with a different color scheme and organizational preferences. Travelocity rates each flight itinerary with a score on a scale of 10, which takes into account, the duration, type of aircraft, and “quality of amenities” available onboard from Very Good to Satisfactory to Fair. Travelocity charges booking fees for some but not all flights.
