Best Accommodation Booking Sites

Airbnb Official Logo
An amazing site that connects homeowners who rent out their homes/apartments to you. You’ll get all the comforts of home, the chance  to stay in a local, non-touristy part of where you are going, and pay a fraction of the cost of a hotel room. (If you’re new to Airbnb, get $35 off your first stay!)

Hostel World Official Logo

The best hostel accommodation site on the Internet with the largest inventory, best search interface, and highest availability. I have used them over the years for all my hostel bookings.

Agoda Official Logo

An amazing website for accommodation in Asia. This should be your first choice for booking guesthouses and hotels in Asia. They have the best selection and offer the best rates. When I travel around Southeast Asia, I don’t use anyone else as they have helped me save hundreds of dollars on accommodations.

Best Travel Insurance ProviderWorld Nomads Official Logo

My #1 trusted source for travel insurance. They have great customer service, competitive prices, and in-depth coverage. I’ve been using them since I started traveling in 2011.

When my backpack was taken in Israel and my smart phone was stolen in Czech Republic, they paid out on my claims and the process was easy and straight forward. They are also recommended by Lonely Planet and National Geographic so you know they are good.
