Search quickly and efficiently
Traveling today is cheaper, faster and easier than ever before. Access to global databases via the Internet allows you to plan almost anything. Giant combine servers searching millions of offers are available 24 hours a day. Just fill out the modest and inconspicuous search box and press "Enter".
Below, I have gathered information on selected search engines divided into categories, thanks to which you can plan your trip and stay anywhere on the globe. I do not intend to publish here the addresses of all search engines, but only a few selected ones that I personally find most useful.
Definitely the most enjoyable and most convenient tool for looking for cheap flights. In addition, it operates probably on the largest database of carriers and flights. It is rare to find a cheaper flight in some niche search engine. There are several similar: kayak, Momondo or Google Flights, but for some reason this is the most popular.
Detailed description how to cleverly search for cheap flights and showing how you can on your air ticket itself save over 1 PLN 000 you will find in a separate article: How to search for cheap flights and cheap flights? [GUIDE]
Proven, huge car rental base. It happens that the prices through Rentalcars are lower than directly on the rental website. Its great advantage is that it includes offers from even smaller, local rentals, which in many places are definitely more favorable than the prices of large chain stores. The weak version of the website for the phone is a definite disadvantage. After opening the website on the phone, there are no basic filters in the search engine (e.g. you cannot select the rental companies to which you want to limit the search result), therefore the list of results is very long and it is difficult to find the offer you are interested in.
One of Rentalcars' largest direct competitors. The website is also available in Polish (you can switch the language after entering the website).
The search results are presented in the form of a very practical table, which clearly shows which offers are the cheapest. I often visit this search engine because of the convenience of price analysis.
The youngest of the search engines I propose, which makes it the most modern. Perfectly suited for use in phones, it includes a full set of search filters, in no way inferior to the desktop version.
In addition, the scope of information for each offer is well organized, the amounts of deposits, credit card requirements and other issues important when renting are clearly described. Big + from me for the readability and transparency of offers!
The search engine is rated very highly by users.
From the technical point of view and the quality of the description of car rental offers, in my opinion it is unrivaled.
Car rental tutorials
Car rental rules are different in different countries, and even in regions of one country! There are places where you can find great offers, or where you need to be especially careful about something.

Parking at the airport
Cheap and proven parking lots at Polish airports. Booking in advance guarantees an additional discount: 10, 20 or 30% (depending on advance notice).
Compared to the prices in basic parking lots, this is a real gulf. I recommend checking out!
A thing most don't remember… parking! After all, you have to leave the car somewhere, if you reached the airport with your car. It can be done expensive (without preparation by simply entering one of the available parking lots) or cheaply (often even in the same parking lot) by booking a place in advance via the Internet.
The search engine proposed by me (the largest in the world) allows you to book parking lots in 44 countries, in over 400 locations and with 1000 partners. There are default airport parking lots, as well as parking lots from independent, cheaper service providers. Devilishly good parking database and booking tool in one place.
After entering the website, you may be a bit surprised, because despite the fact that the website handles thousands of bookings a day around the world, its graphic appearance is still like from a different era 🙂
The best network of bus connections at the moment, serving connections in Europe. In addition, a huge number of national, local bus connections. Simple booking and purchase of a ticket via the internet. It must be said that the prices are very attractive. Very friendly connection search engine. Reservation with 1 one month in advance guarantees a big discount on the ticket. Reductions for earlier bookings even reach 70%.
Coach tickets search engine in Poland and Europe. In Poland, it supports nearly 100% of carriers. It allows you to buy a ticket online and print it yourself. The search engine is unfortunately not as smart as in Skyscanner and does not suggest ready solutions. You can even say that it's coarse. You need to show a little patience.
Through the site booking.com I find most of my accommodation. I have tried many different alternatives, but usually it ends up with booking.com. For regular customers they often have additional discounts, which make the offer often unrivaled. I would recommend.
Ways to search for the best deals on Booking.com on specific examples, allowing to save several hundred zlotys, I described in detail in the entry: Cheap hotels on Booking? Of course! Check how to find comfortable and cheap accommodation! Barcelona, Rome, Paris ... wherever you want!
I am more and more convinced to AirbnbThis is mainly due to the activity of the portal displayed by employees Airbnb in case any problems arise. Airbnb most often it is on the client's side (i.e. ours), unless our complaints are simply irrational - well, you know.
So far Airbnb I treated it with a bit of reserve, because on this website there are houses, flats and accommodation rented by private persons and I was afraid that such a private owner might have a rather loose approach to the subject (unlike a hotel or guesthouse). With time, however, I found out that hard politics Airbnb it brings great results towards the owners of rented premises and the quality of the rental services is really good. In the meantime, offers of hotels (mainly smaller ones) and guesthouses have also appeared on the website. The offer has become very interesting and it perfectly extends what is available on booking.com.
It's definitely worth it look for good deals on Airbnb!
Would it be nice to be able to buy a train ticket for trains throughout Europe, without leaving home, by computer or phone, and in addition through the website in Polish? Sounds fabulous, but today it is a fact. The largest international rail ticket sales platform has launched its sales platform in Polish! Now you can buy a train ticket all over Europe at the same price as in the ticket office at the train station. Do you want to go by train from Córdoba to Malaga, or from Palermo to Catania? Here you are! You click in Trainline - [click], you are looking for a connection, you buy and you drive!
Aaah ... something else! Let it be funny one of the few carriers whose tickets are not on the platform are carriers from Poland 🙂
