Skyscanner offers complete flexibility for the best rates. When I am itching for a trip I will visit this site with budget in mind and that's it! I let the site guide me through regions and countries with the best dates to visit based on flight deals.
Kayak is my favorite travel site to monitor flight prices. You can also book hotel and car rentals through this site but I mainly use it for flights. Set your destination and browse the calendar for the best times to fly for less!
TripAdvisor is always a must! I don't rely solely on it because different types of travelers have various expectations. But it's a great site to give you a general idea of the best of the best when it comes to hotels, excursions, tours, restaurants & more. In addition to reviews you can often compare prices on this site to ensure you're getting a fair deal.
