Top Tips on Finding the Best Holiday Deal

Whether you are looking for the perfect deal for the family summer holiday, a great hotel for a weekend break or a flight to meet someone at a certain location, there are plenty of helpful sites on the internet to get the best deals.  In fact, the internet has revolutionized holiday hunting and changed the way travel companies deal with potential customers – making the best deal much easier to find.

Hotels only

If you are looking for a hotel only, whether for a night, a weekend or longer, then Hotellook is a great place to start.  The website gathers prices not from just a single hotel chain or group but from the top hotel websites such as HotelTravel.com and Getaroom – meaning you get the best of the best in terms of deals.

The website operates a ‘no hidden prices’ policy where everything you will pay is shown in the cost.  It also has an email subscription service where if you see a hotel you like, you can get notifications when the price of that hotel is reduced.


Flights only

One of the best websites to find a flight, when you have a hotel or have already booked one is Skyscanner.  This site can offer flights from over 1200 trusted airlines around the world including all the major US and UK carriers and budget airlines as well.  The website also has a no hidden fees policy that means they don’t charge any extra for using the website.

It is also possible to compare the airlines that you are considering flying with if there are more than one available for the route.  Look at what they offer, the facilities available such as lounges at the airports and even their customer service ratings to help you make an informed choice.

Holiday deals


If you want an all in one package without preference for which hotel you stay in or which airline you fly with, then comparison sites may be the place to go.  These websites correlate information from countless sources and allow you to select a ready-made package with minimal effort.

These sites also offer extras that may be required including travel insurance, car hire and extras such as airport transfers and parking.  They can even offer prices on ferry and train tickets in different parts of the world.  This means if you are uncertain what you need, these websites can bring it together into a single deal and save you time searching around for it.
