trivago_logoYou may have seen their commercials on TV, but like me, you may have chalked them up to just another website like Expedia and Hotels.com. That would be a mistake. Trivago is the real-deal and much better than the rest.

This search engine compares results from over 200 booking sites (like Expedia, Hotels.com, and others) to get you the best rate at over 700,000 hotels worldwide – all with one click. And it’s free. You don’t even have to register to use the site, although there are some benefits if you do – such as remembering your preferences.

How good is their “best” rate? On average, users save 35 percent more using trivago than they would by booking the same room another way. Plus there’s the time you save by not having to do all those price comparisons.
