Best Travel Deal Apps and Websites to Download Before You Book Your Next Trip

 In Travel Tips
Utilizing travel apps and websites may seem like a no-brainer in this day and age as we take on the responsibility of booking our own travel. There are tens of thousands of websites and apps to tell you the best way to book your trip. However, which ones do you actually need?

I’ve downloaded loads (and loads) of travel apps over the years. I’ve tried dozens of apps that claim to be the best for a variety of reasons. Each alleges to be the easiest to use, have the best search capabilities, and of course, save me the most money. But in an overwhelmingly crowded field, several stand out as the best travel deal apps and websites to download before your next trip.

Best Travel Deal Apps and Websites

Best Travel Deal Apps and Websites to Download Before You Book your Next Trip

Hopper

The Hopper app is that not-so-secret free travel app all of your friends are using, but somehow you just don’t know about it yet. Fear not, I’m here to fill you in. The Hopper app not only allows you to book flights, but also alerts you WHEN to book your flight for the best price and biggest savings. No more FOMO for you!

Skyscanner

Skyscanner is the oldies, but goodies app we always fall back on. I especially love that I can search via a color-coded calendar for the best days to fly based on my budget. I’m I’m locked in to dates, I can also search by specific times and days. There is a reason Skyscanner continues to stand out amongst the crowd, it’s that good.

Test out Skyscanner now for yourself. It’s FREE!

Momondo

Momondo is a powerhouse app. The app provides comparisons of flight comparison sites, as well as the official airline sites (say that three times fast). A graph informs you of the cheapest times to fly, as well as when direct versus a long layover may be the smartest way to travel. Like the Hopper app, I’m surprised how few people take advantage of the Momondo app, but you better believe more people will be signing up for this free travel app in the new year.

Kayak

Kayak is like many other online travel agent sites (OTAs), but the app can search for the best deals and send you notifications when the deal you are looking at gets even better. The app also allows you to enter your budget and it will tell you the places you can afford. I like a site that helps me narrow down my options. Sometimes too many options is just so overwhelming. I have kids! I need someone to take care of ME every now and then!

TravelZoo

TravelZoo is great for finding package deals. They were pulling deals to Iceland before Iceland was even cool. Yup. This is how I took our family of four to Iceland for under $2500 a few years ago. Granted, my youngest wasn’t quite yet two, so he flew for free, but still. For about $650 each, we flew nonstop from Seattle, stayed in a hotel and had two tours and a stop at the Blue Lagoon included in our TravelZoo deal. Once a week TravelZoo pops into my inbox. Sometimes I have to delete the email before I can read it. This email is that dangerous to my wanderlust. I just want to go everywhere they find deals for me to go!

Travelocity

Travelocity consistently saves people money when they bundle hotel, car and flights. Don’t leave money on the table by booking these separately or booking once you arrive at your destination.

Try out Travelocity and do the math for yourself!
