Where to book accommodation.
These days travel agents are as obsolete as video tapes. With all these resources available online you can DIY anything from your honeymoon to how to make a bull whip from para-cord.
Here are my top sites for booking accommodation in SA. (and when to use each one)
SA venue – This site is probably the most found one when searching for weekend getaways or last minute accommodation. I do however find that there are loads whom don’t list on their site.
Safari now – Safari is an older, established site. (Many little vineyard and country cottages use them as a booking system) They are very easy to deal with when you need to contact them. Great customer service.
Bookings.com – I use this site for work travel. It has such a wide variety from hotels to BnB’s. What I like most about it is the way you can refine your search. Need wifi and breakfast buffet? Easy find on Bookings.com.
Air BnB – GREAT for strange getaways. You can rent a little flat in the city for a night or two or a villa in Spain if you please.
Lekker slaap – Lekker Slaap has the most incredible local little places on it. I use this site when looking for places that sleeps a few people. Friends getaway vs just Os and I. it feels as if many of the coolest little places are hiding away on this site.
Groupon – Hey look, Groupon is what Forest Gump would call a box of chocolates. You never know when you are going to get a coffee liquor dark chocolate or that kak one with the moerse nut inside it.
Daddya deals – Total hit or miss. Sometimes they have amazing deals and sometimes they are R5.00 off if you sleep 6 people and stay 8 nights.
By searching these sites listed above you are sure to find what you are looking for. Whether its a work or personal trip. There is something for everyone.
