With competition at an all-time high, finding the right site for your holiday can be difficult. Below is a list of 5 of our favourite sites/apps to use when planning out Annual Leave.

Unforgettable trips start with Airbnb. Find adventures nearby or in faraway places and access unique homes, experiences, and places around the world. Finding a place to stay in advance or last minute for the right price is simple with Airbnb. Their apps UX and UI are perfect for the new wanderlust or the seasoned traveller.

3: Frommer's
As an American I always assumed Frommer’s was an imaginary guide book created for the movie Eurotrip, but it turns out it is not fictional and does have everything imaginable when planning out adventures in a new destination. ‘The essential destination for planning the perfect travel excursion’

4: OpenTable
Make online reservations, read restaurant reviews from diners, and earn points towards free meals. One of the best things about traveling to a new place is trying out the local food, but waiting forever for a table can be a nightmare. OpenTable can help with booking and extensive reviews so you have a better idea of what you are getting into.

5: Duolingo
When traveling to a foreign land part of embracing the culture is also learning a bit of the language. Even if it is just how to ask for directions, or where to find the nearest loo, having a few keys phrases is essential. ‘Learning with Duolingo is fun and addictive.’
