Be­ing able to book flights, ho­tels, tours, and at­trac­tions on­line is a god­send. We no longer have to open mul­ti­ple web­sites and strug­gle through phone calls to for­eign tour of­fices – ev­ery­thing's just a click away! But, there are some things that can go awry with on­line book­ings. Some­times, servers fail and book­ings are lost. Scams are aplenty and many peo­ple walk into them un­aware, los­ing thou­sands of dol­lars in the process.

Book­ing web­sites that com­pile flights, ho­tels, and pack­ages also of­ten come with a hid­den fee. For ex­am­ple, you might come across a fee for us­ing a debit card on book­ing. com, while Agoda charges a set fee for can­cel­la­tions. But there are also perks – for ex­am­ple, Agoda has a loy­alty scheme that gives you dis­counts af­ter book­ing a num­ber of times.

Here’s how you can get the most out of your on­line book­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, and have stress-free hol­i­days!
