You may think the hard decisions are behind you when you finally settle on your travel destination, but really, the hardest decision is yet to come: What booking service should you use to make your reservations? From hotels to flights and car rentals, the right booking provider can potentially save you hundreds of dollars in travel fees.
Booking.com is one of the world's biggest booking services, seeing over 850,000 room night reservations every day. Their guaranteed low prices and their comprehensive website draw a wide range of international travelers, from those traveling for business to vacationers traveling for leisure. Booking.com has contracts with over 630,000 properties worldwide, a scope that the company uses to leverage great prices for their customers.
Booking.com works with hotels, B&B's, homes, apartments and hostels in over 212 countries, so chances are, you'll find a great deal on accommodations wherever it is you're traveling. Not sure where you'd like to go? That's not a problem! Booking.com has a handy "Explore Destinations" tab that allows prospective travelers to select a few options and let Booking.com do the legwork! From countries, regions, continents or even something as vague as "tranquility" and "sightseeing", Booking.com will take your criteria and generate a list of recommendations.
Like many companies in the online business, Booking.com sees its fair share of competition. Expedia.ca, Hotels.com, Bookit.com, Hotelopia.com and itravel2000.com are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to travel sites vying for your booking. Naturally, as a savvy Canadian traveler, if you're going to choose Booking.com, you want to know the perks:
- Low rates and no booking fees

When it comes to great prices, Booking.com knows a thing or two about getting Canadians great deals.
