• Travel Resources

    As a travel blogger and frequent traveller, I am always shopping around trying to find the best deals. I wanted to share with you my favourite travel resources that I use for booking flights to get me places to pillows to rest my head on. I spend a lot of time researching and planning. There are a lot of travel resources and websites out there, but these are the ones I go back to time and time again. They have my seal of approval, so you can book your next trip in confidence.

    See below my favourite websites and apps to use for my travel planning.

    BOOKING TRANSPORT & FLIGHTS

    SKYSCANNER

    Still my favourite flight booking site, and my go-to in most cases. The "search anywhere" option is still my favourite feature when I just want to see what flights are possible and see what surprises turn up.

    ROME 2 RIO

    Another of my favourite websites to search for flights and transport to a certain place. Even if it's somewhere in the middle of nowhere, you are bound to find a way of getting there by using Rome 2 Rio.

    KAYAK

    When I know where I'm going and need a certain luggage allowance, Kayak is the first place I check for flights. Once you search a route, you can add all the extras - like number of bags - on the side panel.

    HELPFUL APPS TO DOWNLOAD

    HEATHROW APP

    I love using my Heathrow App whenever I fly from Heathrow, I love that it gives me flight updates, maps to restaurants and shops and other travel news and information. You can also download ones for Gatwick, Luton and Stansted FREE from the app stores.

    CURRENCY CONVERTER PLUS APP

    This is my favourite app for finding out what something is in another currency compared to my own. It updates daily when connected to WiFi or a Network and you can have multiple currencies on at a time. It's so handy to have on your phone!

    DOWNLOAD THE APP

    BRITISH AIRWAYS APP

    I love using the British Airways app when I book my flights with BA as it keeps me up to date with my flights and also holds my boarding passes in the app so I don't need to keep printing them out - which is so handy when you want to save the planet.

    WHERE TO BOOK YOUR ACCOMMODATION

    AIRBNB

    This is my favourite place to find accommodation that's a little bit different to your usual hotel or hostel. It can vary from someone's apartment to a quirky cave based hotel.

    TRIP ADVISOR

    When I vowed to never use Booking.com again, TripAdvisor fast became my favourite place to book accommodation and view reviews on hotels and places to stay instead.

    AGODA

    I love using Agoda when searching for a great deal on a hotel or other accommodation. They usually show up when I search for hotels on TripAdvisor and compare their prices against other companies in the same market.
