Travel Tips

Best Accommodation Companies

Below are my three best companies for accommodation. The first one is which is the best website to compare accommodation around the world. Most of the hotels or rooms are payable at the property which means you can cancel and if you aren’t too close to the date you lose nothing. It saved me a lot of money when my flight to San Francisco was cancelled. The second is the best site if you love pets. Trusted Housesitters is a website where you can have FREE accommodation in exchange of taking care of a pet. You can read my article about how to travel for free for more information about house-sitting. The last one is Belvilla. This site is for travellers who want to have the freedom of being in a luxurious villa. These villas are ideal for families and you can cook, relax after a day trip.

Best Rental Car

If you need to rent a car for your trip, I advise you to stay with well known rental companies, especially in Mexico where there are plenty of scams. If you travel in Europe, the best one is Europcar. I have used them many times and have never had any complaints.
