You may have heard of Trivago, a hotel comparison search engine that compares hotel booking sites like Booking, Agoda, Hotels.com for the best prices.

But did you know, the prices you see on Trivago could also be ‘secret’ prices that may be even cheaper than the original booking site!

What that means, is that not only do you get to save by booking through Trivago, but you also reap the loyalty rewards from the booking site itself. That’s doubling the discounts! Watch the video below to see exactly what I mean!

Hot Tip

  • Trivago is a hotel comparison search engine, not a booking site. When you decide to proceed with a booking, the website redirects you to the booking site. So if you have any issues with reservation or hotel, go back to the booking site you chose, not Trivago.
  • Don’t forget to change the currency to your local currency.
  • Always click on ‘see more’ to see the full list of hotel prices. Sometimes, the top ones may not always be the cheapest ones.

Alternative Hotel Comparison Websites

If Trivago isn’t for you, there are always plenty of alternative options. I personally haven’t used the other websites long enough to comment, but if you’re searching for alternative options, here are some popular ones.

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.

It doesn’t affect you in any way, but we may receive a small commission for bookings through our site.

Hot Tip

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.

Hotel Booking Sites

hotels.com hotel booking
I use Hotels.com app to book hotels after browsing through hotel comparison sites. The loyalty program is my favourite and customer service has been excellent so far.
Trip.com hotel booking
Sometimes I find the best prices on Trip.com, so I use Trip as an alternative hotel booking app.
Agoda hotel booking
Agoda also offers some of the best prices around, and its rewards system is simple to use and is one of my go-to hotel booking apps.
Booking hotel booking
Occasionally, the hotel I’d like to book is only available on Booking.com. This site has the most complete list of accommodations.

Holiday Homes

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.

New Zealand travels: use Bookabach.co.nz
Australia travels: use stayz.com.au
Airbnb holiday home hotel booking
I personally find Airbnb is getting more and more expensive with fees, so I don’t use it often anymore. However, Airbnb still remains one of the largest holiday home booking sites.
