Here I share with you my favourite travel links and travel resources. Check out my trusted travel partners and consider Booking with them.

FIND CHEAP FLIGHTS

Travel resources Airlines

Google Flights

GOOGLE FLIGHTS

One of the best flight search engines out there, Google Flights lets you enter your departure airport and it shows flights from all over the world on a map. You can see where the cheapest destinations are. You can’t book here, but you can check on flights before booking your flight.

VAYAMA

Vayama is a new (and fun) way to search and book international flights. The interactive (and cool) map tool is a great way to access a wider selection of airlines, routes and fares, many never previously available online. Vayama provides more flight choices to select from, so you can find the lowest prices and best schedules. Try it out!

Booking

BOOKING.COM

Booking.com has been one of my favourite travel resources for years. It provides a great resource and booking site for cheap hotels and other accommodation. Their interface is very user-friendly.

Hostelworld Logo

HOSTELWORLD

The best hostel accommodation site with a large inventory, friendly search interface, and highest availability. I use them for all my hostel bookings. Since they bought their competitor Hostelbookers, they are the biggest one there is.

Couchsurfing Logo

COUCHSURFING

This website allows you to stay on people’s couches or spare rooms for free. It’s a great way to save money while meeting locals who can tell you much more about a city than you will find out in a hostel/hotel. I have used this website dozens of times and the site also has groups where you can meet up for events in your city.

 

TOUR COMPANIES

If you’re looking for a small group travel company for your Canada adventure, you have come to the right place. Intrepid has a wide selection of tours in Canada, so you can make most of your visit if you are on a limited time schedule.
