Trying hard to decide how to plan your next travel itinerary or What are the travel resources you need for your next Travel Destination or you may be thinking to ask for an agency to make a perfect tour itinerary to make your travel a bit smoother? Since I planned my travel itinerary and all the arrangements by myself over the last couple of years of my travel. I have used hundreds of companies for further Bookings for my stays, Flight, Food, and so on. There are thousands of online travel platforms to help you travel smarter and cheaper. Some of them are really amazing which helps you throughout your Journey. I have listed the best out there, those are continually offering the best deals.
There are websites and tools I personally used for the past couple of years and can recommend you guys to use it to explore your next destination.
I will be adding and expanding to these Travel resources, so before you go on the next trip be sure to check all the ticks as mentioned below
BOOKING.COM, I have been using booking.com to find the best stay around me from the start, especially they have a bunch of cheap and budget Guesthouse and Hostels especially when you are looking for a stay in Asia or Europe. What I really like about Booking.com is that you reserve your hotel room through Booking.com but pay at the hotel when you check-in or out. So if you end up changing your mind, you don’t have to wait for a refund.
AIRBNB.COM, while planning for a long trip, to stay in a city for more than a week so AIRBNB should be your first choice. This site connects you with the homeowners who wish to rent their apartments, Rooms for the stay. Airbnb comes with a great concept which attracts many travelers to explore places for staying long and paying less.

AIRLINES WEBSITES: Before Booking any flight with the airline, I will always recommend you to go to the airline’s webpage to see the fare difference. Let’s say you have searched for the Delhi to Dubai Flights on SKYSCANNER.COM and you are getting good fare on Emirates, so I would have recommended you to go on Emirates’ official website to check the fare on the same date. In many cases, you may get less fare on the Airline website page.
ROME2RIO.COM: The website helps you to see the distance between Point A to Point B with the cheapest and best mode of transport.

This platform has a wealth of users to review hotels, attractions, and activities around the city.
