One of the questions I get asked the most is, “What are your favorite travel booking websites?”
My answer usually sounds something like, “It all depends on what you’re looking for”.
Super helpful, right?! But it’s the truth.
There are several great travel websites out there and we use many different ones depending on what we need to book.
For the best prices on hotels, look no further than TravelPony.com.
TravelPony.com launched last fall and has over 20,000 hotels in destinations all over the world.
How can they offer lower prices than the big guys?
Instead of spending billions on advertising, they ask their members to spread the word through social media and word of mouth. This allows them to pass the savings on to us.
