TRAVEL SERVICES and PRODUCTS
My Travel Op has traveled throughout the world. In our travels, there are certain travel or retail providers that we use (many extensively) and believe in. Some of the primary companies we use and/or recommend are listed below.
If you would like to browse the company’s website for their travel-related services and products, click on the company banner and you will be taken to their website. If you make a purchase, we will receive a small commission which helps us maintain this website. Our commission does not impact the cost that you pay for the service or product.
Air travel, lodging and car rentals
We use booking.com extensively for lodging reservations throughout our travels. Booking.com has very competitive rates everywhere we travel whether it’s a large hotel or a small guesthouse (bed and breakfast).
Hotels.com is another excellent lodging reservation site that we use frequently. They provide a free room night with every ten nights that you book through them. We find them extensively throughout the world and their rates to be very competitive

There’s a whole world of amazing sights, hotels, travel companies and gear manufacturers out there – and we want to tell you which ones we think are best. But we never compromise our opinions for commercial gain. If you read something written by a Lonely Planet author, you can guarantee they’ve been there, had a look for themselves and are telling you what they really think. It’s trusted advice from a trusted source. We’ve been reading Lonely Planet Guides as long as we can remember and there is so much information packed into these guides we couldn’t have learned what we have and seen some of the places we’ve seen without them, we highly recommend using them to plan your next adventure!
