We use booking.com everywhere we travel and have for years. It is our go to search site when booking accommodations. We love that most (but not all) places do not require payment or a deposit and you can cancel if you find something better. NOTE: Always read the cancelation policy because it can differ among properties.
Many times when we travel we do not make reservations ahead of time unless we know we plan to stay in one area. In big cities we like to figure out the area which suits us best before booking. Booking.com makes this easy. Once we get to a certain place we just open our booking.com mobile app and look for accommodations nearby. TIP: If you are going someplace during tourist or busy season then it is best to book ahead of time.
If you are using booking.com and you see a property you really want is sold out, call the property. We have found many places that put a select number of rooms on booking.com to get their name out there and to get traffic. They might have rooms available that were not advertised on booking.com. We found this out too late when we traveled with 31 of our friends and family to Dingle Ireland. Now we always call the property just in case.
We have no affiliation with booking.com. We love them because it is easy and convenient to book with them. We love that we can take all our booking information with us by using their mobile app. We always pay close attention to the user reviews because most of the time they are right on target. The user reviews will also give you helpful tips and great information. The property links contain directions so you know exactly where the place is located.
TIP: Use booking.com to find a property and then call or visit the property. A lot of places will offer you the same or even better pricing. They pay booking.com a fee for every rental. Many places will be happy to pass on some savings to you.
If you have never used www.booking.com we encourage you to try it the next time you travel. If you travel off peak you can get some really great last minute deals. When we stayed in Rio we booked 2 weeks prior and ended up at a B&B for half the normal cost.
Booking.com’s main business is accommodations. It is something they know and do well. They do have links on their website for flights and car rental. The flight link will take you to Kayak.com and the car rental link will take you to rentalcars.com.
