Choosing the accommodation for your holiday can be one of the most difficult parts of the planning process so it’s no wonder that thousands of travellers turn to to help them.

The website lists almost 300,000 properties in more than 200 countries, including hotels, vacation rentals, apartments, guest houses and resorts, and all are at very competitive prices.

Why choose

  • Around 300,000 properties to choose from
  • Price Guarantee
  • Easy to use website
  • Handy app
  • Rewards program

In the UK and Europe there is a huge range of accommodation to choose from so there’s something to suit every budget.  Whether you prefer the homeliness of a B&B, the luxury of a high-end hotel, the space of a self-catering apartment or cottage, or something in between, you’re sure to find it on

Some of my top accommodation picks in Europe and the United Kingdom include:

  • An apartment in a luxury Palazzo in Rome
  • A Country House in County Kerry
  • A castle stay in Amberley
  • A loft apartment in Paris
  • A luxury hotel with infinity pool overlooking Lake Lucerne

Booking online with

The website is really easy to use – simply type in your destination and the dates of your stay and all the available accommodation will be listed.  If you have a particular style of accommodation, or a certain star rating in mind, you can also make your search more specific by filtering from the options on the left hand side.

Many of the properties listed offer free cancellation up until the day prior to check in, so if plans change, you won’t be out of pocket.

There’s also a app which makes it easy to keep track of your bookings on the go.

The Price Guarantee is available right up until the day before you check in.
