4 Lesser-Known Websites for Comparing Stays Worldwide

We all know what it is like to plan your next trip without knowing where to start looking for the best deals and packages. Thousands of websites advertise unique places to visit and hotels to stay in; however, having so many options can sometimes make it even more confusing. To make things easier, we will go through four lesser-known websites you should consider checking out, which may help you compare stays worldwide.

Bucket List Travels

First on this list is Bucket List Travels, an innovative website boasting articles from experienced travel writers on what countries you should visit on holiday and where you should consider staying whilst there. 

You can find considerable helpful information on this website, from the most popular things to do at chosen locations to the top hotels and resorts to book for the best experience. The website has a friendly interface that allows you to filter your search to find something perfect for you. Some examples of this include filtering prices to find a holiday that fits into your budget and accommodating children if you’re planning to go on a family holiday. 

This site provides a vast range of valuable ideas and facts about different travel destinations around the globe. If you find something interesting, you can favourite it and return to it in the future after weighing up all of your options.

You can also find information on how to travel to specific destinations and the best ways to get around once you arrive. This removes the headache of trying to figure it out yourself when you are meant to be relaxing on holiday. They have a wide range of potential holiday options, from significant city breaks such as Madrid and Paris to more exclusive destinations that require a private plane to reach. 


TripSavvy provides plenty of useful travel content covering everything you need to book a fantastic holiday, from hotel choices to restaurant recommendations and itinerary guides. It has garnered a strong reputation for providing high-quality, useful, and accurate content written by people with extensive experience with travel. 

One of the best ways to use this website is to make a list of all the possible places that you may want to visit and then search for each location on this site. You can then learn more about your potential holiday options, some valuable insights, and additional tips about what places to visit or avoid, such as tourist traps and what areas are the best places to stay for travellers.


TravelZoo is a website with over 30 million members worldwide; however, many people still don’t know about it. They specialise in offering exclusive deals and unforgettable experiences for exceptional holidays. 

One of the best features of TravelZoo is that they do the hard work for you by partnering up with thousands of travel providers across the globe to source the best deals for you.

There is no downside to taking advantage of TravelZoo’s service, so it is worth checking out. 

Lonely Planet

The last website on this list is Lonely Planet, which has been around for many years and has information on almost any destination worldwide. The writers for this website are experts in providing everything from sightseeing recommendations to suitable holiday destinations, to even what food and drink is available, and a vast amount of other helpful information.
