Technology has evolved so much, and of course, has evolved industries as well. For the travel enthusiast, technology has helped enhance the overall traveling experience. From wifi on airplanes to computerized hotel door locks, there are many ways that technology has helped enhance our experiences.
But some companies have gone farther with it, providing travelers with sites or apps that are devoted to enhancing the experiences of a customer from the start all the way through to the end. Today, it’s not out of the ordinary for a single site to provide us with suggestions and quick tools to book flights, hotels, and propose plenty of suggestions for places to eat or things to do. Below are some of the best sites that do just that.
- The first on our list is Airbnb. Back in 2008 when the company first started, the concept of getting travel housing from individuals was basically unknown to us. However, after years of growth of a “sharing economy”, this company has grown into one of the largest travel companies in the world. The company works by connecting homeowners and property managers to people looking to travel. You’ll of course find houses to stay in for the night, but there are also listings from castles, beach houses, and others which allows individuals to experience something new and authentic that you couldn’t find in a hotel.
- If Airbnb is offering things too much out of your price range, one place you site you can check out is Momondo. Out of the sites that are in this specific niche, Momondo is one of the best ones out there. This site’s function isn’t booking rental homes or hotels alone, but instead looks for deals and discounts on everything. We’re talking about deals of flights, hotels, and even rental cars. What’s even better is you can set up notifications so that you’ll know when there is a price change on certain things. You won’t be able to book flights directly through this site which is the only real drawback, however you can work this in conjunction with Kayak.com. Kayak is essentially the same thing but paired up with other sites can ensure you get the best deals that you can.
- The last on our list is Jetsetter which is at the forefront of luxury travel for their guests. The company takes pride in providing curated-travel experiences for people with their properties and hotels that are verified and approved by them. The test is rigorous with their workers coming in to inspect beds, wifi signal strength, water pressure, the knowledge that local staff have along with the prowess of the mixologists. Now you may have been hesitant in trying this site out seeing as it is luxury travel, however, Jetsetter often runs a flash sales campaign from time to time. Furthermore, by signing up to their email-marketing platform, you can get plenty of good deals and also be aware of these flash sales too. It’s a good deal to sign up to their marketing list for this.
