Best Hotel DealsHonestly, we now have access to Travel Agent's pricing on all hotels, so we rarely use other sites when it comes to hotels. The prices are genearlly 10-30% cheaper than what you can find online. We can provide you with these prices as well, but we have to send you the rate as an agent. Sign up for our Free Travel Consultation if you would like us to provide you with the special pricings. Alternatively, you can pick up some fair deals by going directly to the two sites below.
Our Favorite Online Hotel deals are listed on:
We like hotels.com for it's easy to use website and great deals on hotels, condos, villas, resorts, hostels, bnbs, and apartments. You can even customize based on your vacation type and preferences like: Beach, Adventure, Family-Friendly, Business, Golf, Luxury, or Spas! They also have options for Accessibility Features if they are required! We should note that we don't generally use Hotels (we like Airbnb's because they are more affordable, but we occasionally do grab hotels and this is where we go to first. Check out the mobile exclusive offers at Hotels.com (up to 25% with this link)
When we can't find what we are looking for on Hotels.com, we go to Booking.com - which also has an amazing assortment of hotels. We recommend using booking.com because the customer service is outstanding. If you ever have a problem with your booking you can just call them up and they'll handle the issue for you. You can also customize for just about any type of room based on price, kitchen, ratings, etc.

Airbnb is the #1 place that we use to get affordable places to stay just about anywhere! Additionally, if you've never used Airbnb before, you can get $40 off your first trip PLUS $15 toward an experience of $50 or more with this link). Honestly, it is important to know just how to book a great Airbnb to avoid having issues. We can walk you through the process or find a great one for you ourselves using our Free Travel Consultation. We even recommend renting out your own spare room with Airbnb to earn money to cover travel expenses (learn how to do this here).
Another option that we use if we cannot find a decent place on Airbnb is VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owner). Here you can rent out condos, villas, or apartments - or you can even swap houses with people in other countries (at almost no cost!)
And although we've never used it, you could try swapping houses with someone else to SAVE THOUSANDS of dollars (just like in the movie "The Holiday" with Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Jack Black) with HomeForExchange.

Yes, it costs more to be pampered, but sometimes it's necessary!
Our "go-to" for Day Trips and Side Excursions is Tours4Fun.
We've had issues with their competitors at Viator a number of times already, but we haven't had issues with Tours4fun
So, we've been sticking with Tours4fun and we are quite happy with their service!
