Today I would like to introduce a new hotel reservation site, Yonderbound.
I get it. There are already so many hotel booking websites out there, so why would you consider using another?
Trust me, this new one is worth a look.
Yonderbound is somewhere between a regular booking website and Pinterest (you all know how much I love Pinterest!)
You can create a Yonderbox, which is similar to a Pinterest board, and pin your hotel to the box. For example, if you are traveling to Bali, you might start pinning different hotels in Bali that you would like to stay at. This is a lot of fun for travel planning geeks like me. If you’re planning a big trip, he can keep all your accommodation options in one place.
When you’re ready to book, all your hotel options will be displayed in a box for you to easily find them.
One of my favorite things about Yonderboxes is that you can view other people’s boxes. Basically, someone else can do all the heavy lifting and hotel research for you. Use other people’s Yonderbox for advice, inspiration, and trusted reviews.
It’s hard to find affordable hotels in London, so I’m very happy to be able to search for Yonderbox.
There are benefits to creating a good Yonderbox, which can earn you Yondercredits. If someone finds and books a hotel through your Yonderbox, 70% of the net proceeds will be credited to your account as Yondercredit.
Recommend it to friends and family, or make your Yonderbox public for everyone to see. If you provide a lot of recommendations, you could potentially earn a lot of money on your next hotel stay.

Other things I love about Younderbound
It’s linked to TripAdvisor
You can read TripAdvisor reviews directly on Yonderbound, so you don’t have to go back and forth.
Prices include taxes and fees
The price shown is the price you will receive. No need to go to checkout and suddenly have to pay an additional 22
It’s great for travel bloggers and making recommendations
If you’re a blogger or a frequent traveler, you’re probably often asked for hotel recommendations. We get asked all the time, so Yonderbound is the perfect place to compile these recommendations. No more long emails. Just a quick link to Yonderbox!
How’s it looking price-wise?
Of course, the most important factor when ultimately making a reservation is price. I’ve spent a lot of time comparing Yonderbound to other hotel booking sites. In most cases there won’t be a huge difference in price (if there is any at all), but Yonderbound is often £5-£20 cheaper per night.
I’m very happy with Yonderbound’s pricing and planning. It’s nice to finally find a site to plan your trip and get inspiration from, but it’s also a great place to actually book your hotel stay.
Lots of choice
Yonderbound currently has 383,693 accommodations worldwide, from 5-star hotels to hostels. Perfect for all types of travelers, or those like me who regularly switch between budget and luxury travel.
Many options to view and refine your search
Anything I don’t like?
Yonderbound is a new site (still in beta), so there are some creases to iron out. Some hotels may be duplicates and hotels outside of your search area may appear in your search.
