Accommodation ideas

Airbnb

On my last travels I have found the best way to live like a local by using the local peoples’ apartments. The very convenient way to stay in such places is to use Airbnb. By the way if you are new to Airbnb and register via the button below then you’ll get extra credit for your stays.

Booking.com

In case you don’t find anything suitable for your needs from Airbnb then another worthy page to find a places to stay is Booking.com. There might not be local peoples apartments but you can still find some nice hostels or hotels with a reasonable price.

Airfare

Skyscanner

When it comes to finding flights then my absolute first place to check from is Skyscanner. There I usually find the cheapest flights that suit for me and then find the same flights on the carrier’s homepage. Sometimes the prices a bit lower on the last one.

Momondo

Similar to Skyscanner it’s a search engine for finding most suitable flights. When it’s super comfortable to purchase the tickets on Momondo’s page you can also check out the prices on the carrier’s homepage. I’ve found a few hundred dollar difference;)

Also you can check out the post with great tips of How to Find Cheap Flights by the peeps from StagKissBudabest.

Car Rental

One of a great way to explore foreign countries is by driving. It’s not easy (or possible) to bring your own car everywhere so it’s a good idea to rent one. I have put together 10 hacks that you should know when renting a car.
