Do you want to know how to make the most of your BookingBuddy cashback? Read on to get inspired on how you can start saving!
With BookingBuddy, holiday bargain-hunting doesn’t need to be difficult or time-consuming. Launched back in 2003, BookingBuddy allows users to find and compare the best prices from several travel providers and online travel agents using just one search. Other 'metasearch' sites usually compile their findings into a single set of results, which – while convenient – can make it difficult to see the full extent of what each seller is offering. BookingBuddy allows you to enter a single search, and see full results from multiple sites in one place. You can move between different sellers and adjust your travel details on any of them if necessary, and play with their search result filters to narrow down your options. And now you can earn cashback too, there’s even more reason to shop for holiday deals using BookingBuddy.
When you’re trying to find accommodation for your next trip, let BookingBuddy hook you up with some of the best deals on hotel rooms across the globe. Whether you’re after a B&B in Brighton or a five-star hotel in Dubai, BookingBuddy makes it simple to see what all the major online travel sites are offering and get the most for your money, whatever your budget. Choose from an endless list of destinations and filter by number of guests and number of rooms to see your results. Once you've searched, BookingBuddy's unique interface means you can tweak your search for each travel seller, adjusting dates and applying filters to find the best options – and you won't even have to leave the site!
In recent years, the number of airlines offering low-cost flights has soared. That’s great news for holidaymakers, but with so many airlines now promising to bring customers the cheapest airfares, it also means that you need to spend extra time doing your research before you book. When you use BookingBuddy to search for flights, it does all the hard work for you. It'll trawl through airline websites, online travel agents such as Expedia and flight comparison sites such as Skyscanner, so you get a complete view of the market and see who’s really bringing you the best value. You can refine your search to flights from your local airports, and, when you’re searching for flight + hotel deals, you can also choose flexible dates to see if there are lower prices available on the surrounding days.
When you plan your holiday using BookingBuddy, you’ll have all the best deals from over 140 travel companies at your fingertips. BookingBuddy conducts its searches using a database of travel providers that includes major companies such as Expedia, Opodo, Lastminute.com and Tripadvisor. BookingBuddy also scans the search results of leading flight search engines like Skyscanner and Momondo to unearth the cheapest offers. With such a huge range of trusted travel companies to search, you can be confident that you’ll be getting the full picture of what’s out there, all in one convenient place.
It’s not just flights and hotels that BookingBuddy can help you out with when you go on holiday. If you're travelling somewhere remote, planning a road trip or just want the freedom to get out and about on your own, use BookingBuddy's car hire search to organize a hire car that'll be ready and waiting when you arrive. BookingBuddy scans prices from car rental companies such as Sixt and from comparison sites such as Autorentals.com and Rentalcars.com, bringing you cheap rates on everything from convertibles to people carriers.
If you’re always on the hunt for the best holiday deals, stay ahead of the game by signing up for travel deal alerts from BookingBuddy.

That way you'll be in the loop when it comes to the latest news on cheap flights and discounts on accommodation and package deals.

Looking for holiday inspiration? Here are five ways of using our BookingBuddy cashback deals to get the best value on your next getaway…
Fancy a cheeky weekend in Paris? A shopping trip to New York? Whether you’ve left it a bit late or you’ve been holding out for a last-minute bargain, BookingBuddy is the place to go when you’re scouting for deals on hotels in the near future. Thanks to their huge database of travel providers, BookingBuddy will up your chance of finding a knockdown price on accommodation for the next few days.
Maybe you're thinking bigger than a weekend in Paris. If you’ve got big plans for your next holiday – an epic trip across the US and Canada, perhaps, or an extended stay in Australia and New Zealand – use BookingBuddy to help with the research you need to plan it out. Browse and compare offers from different travel providers to find out what’s on offer and see how far your budget will stretch. If you’ve got more than one destination in mind, try comparing flights and accommodation costs to see which offers the best value for money.
Why not make use of all of BookingBuddy’s search tools to plan the ultimate family road trip? Share an unforgettable experience as you drive through some of the world’s most breath-taking landscapes. Take in the views along California’s Pacific Coast Highway or stay close to home and discover Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Hiring a car will give you the freedom to stop off and explore whenever and wherever you choose – but when you're going to be on the road a lot, it's crucial to get the right vehicle, so use BookingBuddy’s car rental search tool to find a cheap rate on the perfect car. Look for good entertainment systems and plenty of space to keep you comfortable and pack in all your luggage.
The combined hotel and flight package bookings offered by many travel companies are an excellent way of getting the most out of your holiday budget. When you use BookingBuddy's “Holidays” search tool to look for package deals, you could end up saving up to thirty percent on what you’d have spent on the same flights and hotels separately. Because prices vary on different days, you can also choose a degree of date flexibility to help you hunt down the cheapest options. As well as this, you have the option to specify a price range per person and choose from different board types – from basic room-only and self-catered arrangements to all-inclusive deals with food and entertainment included.
If you’ve suddenly got a free weekend coming up, why not seize the opportunity to go on a mini-break? Go to BookingBuddy to help you snap up a last-minute deal. Look online on Thursday, or even Friday, to find final reductions on weekend flights and hotels in cities across the world. Even if you don’t strike lucky this time, you’ll still be making money on your searches thanks to Quidco's cashback offers. And, if you’re signed up for BookingBuddy’s cheap travel and hotel alerts, you’ll be the first to know about any future opportunities for a spontaneous getaway.

To get information about protection, check the terms and conditions of the seller you book with after your BookingBuddy search.
