Travel itself can be an amazing experience, but the preparations beforehand can be a real headache. Are you going to search and book a hotel? Maybe you’d prefer Airbnb? Or for the truly adventurous, couchsurfing is always an option.
With so many possible paths — and so many possible websites to use — it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But with AllTheRooms.com, you can forget everything else and rely on a single tool when looking for lodging.
In a nutshell, AllTheRooms is a search engine that simultaneously searches through databases for hotels, Airbnb, couchsurfing, and more. If you don’t have a particular preference and would like to consider all options, then this is the perfect tool for you.
Of course, you can also filter by certain lodging types (e.g. exclude couchsurfing hosts) in case you aren’t comfortable with this or that.
AllTheRooms is connected with hosts from around the world, so no matter where you want to go, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to find a place to stay using their services. Give it a try. You may be pleasantly surprised.
