TRAVEL RESOURCES AND SHOPPING GUIDES

We often get asked which sites we use to book our accommodations, flights and tours. Below you'll find some of our favorite online booking resources. This list is comprised of those companies we have personally used and would recommend to you as travelers.

This page contains Amazon Affiliate and/or other affiliate links which means we may earn a small commission (at no extra cost to you!) should you book or purchase something through our site. These commissions help us to continue providing our website as a free travel resource for our viewers. Be assured, any individual items or booking links below are those we have personally used or experienced on our holidays.

Booking Flights

Skyscanner is our first choice for booking flights. We always manage to get the best prices when using Skyscanner. Their “Get Price Alerts” feature allows us to track prices for potential travel dates therefore giving us the best opportunity to book the lowest prices.

PRO-TIP: If you start each flight search in a private browser/incognito browser, you are sure to get the best deals available. This ensures the site isn't saving any cookies from your previous flight searches.

Booking Hotels

Whether booking vacation or work travel accommodations our search always starts with Booking.Com. With such a wide variety of search options we can filter almost everything we're looking for to facilitate our accommodation needs. We prefer to read reviews on this site than those on the likes of TripAdvisor, as travelers can only review if they've actually stayed at the property.
Who doesn't use TripAdvisor right? We sure do! TripAdvisor is a great travel resource for any traveler. Though Booking.Com may be our first stop for booking hotels, we always make sure to check out TripAdvisor for a chance of a better deal through their multi site search. Though we don't fully rely on their reviews for hotels, we do tend to look more closely at excursion reviews before choosing our next adventures.
Agoda is a great little hotel booking secret! Though we don't use this as often for North American Travel, we do use it all the time when we travel overseas. Agoda offers price match guarantee security and also hosts a handy travel coupons section you can choose from before booking. It's definitely worth checking out when starting your travel plans. You can find some great deals here.

Booking Villa Rentals

As you likely know by now, we are fans of staying in guest rentals when traveling to Turks and Caicos. VRBO is always our “go to” site for booking. We enjoy the accuracy of their location in the search process, leaving us confident that we're booking the exact area we wish to stay.

Booking Cars

Though we try to hire locally whenever we can, especially in Turks and Caicos, it's not always possible. With Expedia, we get the best prices and the best selection of vehicles throughout Canada, USA, Mexico and The Caribbean or wherever our travels take us.

Booking Tours

Viator is a TripAdvisor Company catering to tours and day trips! You can search tours, see what's included, read FAQ's and reviews, then book all in one place! With their “Check Availability” feature, you can plan all your activities before you leave home!

TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

“Essential” may be a very loose term for some of these items but we guarantee, those a little less necessary, will add some fun and adventure to your trip to Turks and Caicos.
