Accommodation Booking Sites & Apps

Below is a list of hotel booking sites I personally use myself. You can find a range of family accommodation on these websites, from holiday parks to holiday homes, hotels to resorts.

*Some of these links are affiliate links. (full disclosure)
It doesn’t affect you in any way, but we may receive a small commission for bookings through our site.

Hotel Booking Sites

If you only travel occasionally, consider booking with the hotel directly. You might get a discount & better service.

However, if you’re a frequent traveller that stays at hotels often, we recommend sticking with one hotel booking site/app to reap the benefits of its loyalty program.

Booking hotel booking
After using many hotel booking sites and comparing them over the last decade, Booking.com has the most comprehensive accommodation listings including vacation homes. The loyalty program offers lifetime memberships and there are many accommodations that participate Genius program which gives out perks & discounts.

Hotel Comparison Sites

Holiday Homes

Airbnb holiday home hotel booking
I personally find Airbnb is getting more and more expensive and confusing with fees. However, Airbnb still remains one of the largest holiday home booking sites.
Vrbo holiday home hotel booking
Vrbo is a holiday home booking site. If you live in the Southern Hemisphere, you may be more familiar with the name Homeaway, which is now acquired by Vrbo.
