My favorite search tool for flights.  There are a few different ways you can search.  I especially love their map option where you select your start city and it shows prices for cities around the world.

Momondo shows great deals on almost all airlines & their calendar view is so convenient.

The Hopper app is great when you need to watch prices for a flight.  It sends out updates for when prices will go up/down for a flight that you have flagged.

Skyscanner also includes the budget airlines that often aren’t used on Google Flights.  So this is a great site to use for comparing.

Lodging // Accomodations

I LOVE using AirBnb to book lodging, especially if it’s an expensive to visit city.  The customer service I’ve experienced with their team has always been excellent.  Staying in an apartment feels much more authentic often times.

I enjoy using their map & filter features when searching for hotels, and they usually have the best deals.

Deals plus reviews!  Trip Advisor is great because past visitors can post their more accurate images.  I almost always check Trip Advisor reviews before booking.
