Top 6 Booking Sites to Score Cheap (& Free) Rooms — Updated: 2019

Wanna score cheap or even free accommodation?
Here are some booking sites that would help you save money while traveling.

agoda (cheap accommodation / hotel)

Agoda – If you’re traveling around Asia, Agoda offers the cheapest hotel rates. This site accepts Paypal, online banking, and credit card payments. They also offer Free Cancellation on selected hotels so you won’t have any problem booking in advance and having to cancel later. – is pretty much similar to Agoda since these two booking sites are owned by the same company — Priceline Group. However, if you’re traveling around Europe, offers more hotel listings and better rates. They also have Free Cancellation Policy and Book Now, Pay Later.


Airbnb – If you want to stay longer without paying a lot and feel like at home during your travels, Airbnb is the best and the cheapest option for you.

What’s good about Airbnb is that you can use the facilities which are not available at most hotels. You can also contact the host directly for more inquiries about the accommodation and get some local information about your destination. I highly recommend this booking site. I personally use this when I travel for a longer period.

trusted housesitters

TrustedHousesitters – With an annual membership fee of $119, you can connect with home and pet owners around the world and score a free stay at their home while they’re on vacation.

In return, you are expected to take care of the house and their pets. Usually, you only have to feed the pets on time or take a walk with their dog so you can have most of your time exploring the area which is the main purpose of this platform.

  1. Hi April,
    Loved your suggestions for saving money while on a staycation! I aggregate Bed and Breakfast accommodations in India through my own portal ( As you have mentioned and what i have seen, People are bored of the same old hotel accommodations and love staying with a family to get a feel of home away from home. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hello, Ambuj!
      Couldn’t agree more:)
      I still love hotels but I prefer staying with a host and learn about their culture.
      Will be checking your portal:)
      Thanks for dropping by!

  2. Hi April,
    Of the sites you’ve mentioned, I’ve only used AirBNB before, but it was fantastic!!! Honestly, hotels are so boring compared to some of the places on AirBNB. I’m a big fan of super modern apartments and you can easily find something really nice on AirBNB for less than the price to stay at a generic hotel. I’m completely sold on AirBNB and probably won’t use any other company to find a place to stay in future.

    1. Hello, Cath! i feel you! i’m so in love with Airbnb too! You get more than what you pay for plus the homey feeling. Totally great!

      Happy Travels! :)
