Travel aggregators: yes or no?

In this list of the best travel apps, we have included several travel aggregator apps. These are websites and apps that help you find flights, hotels, and car rentals (sometimes also cruises and other travel deals) and compare options from a variety of providers. Think Expedia, Orbitz and

However, keep in mind that booking directly with a travel aggregator is not always the best option. Yes, sometimes you can get a good price, but having a middleman makes it much more difficult, if not impossible, to deal directly with the airline, hotel, or rental car company if something goes wrong. Instead, booking directly with the provider makes it much easier to add a cancellation policy, purchase a modifiable ticket, and discuss solutions to any issues that arise. Travel aggregator websites are good for research, e.g. B. to find average prices, flight routes and times, but only book through them if you're sure not to speak directly to the provider if a problem arises.

Uber operates all over the world, and while the options within the app vary from place to place, the general concept is the same everywhere.
