Accommodations are a necessary part of any travel budget, but with an abundance of hotel booking sites, home stays and short term apartment rentals, travelers have more choice than ever before.
We asked USA TODAY 10Best readers to vote for their favorite booking site or app from a field of 20 nominees. After four weeks of voting, the results are in!
Taking home the title of Best App/Website for Booking Your Stay is HomeExchange.com, a membership site that allows users to list their home on the website and search for homes to swap with in more than 150 countries.
The top 10 winners of this category are as follows:
- Booking Now
Other nominees in the category Best App/Website for Booking Your Stay included Airbnb, Couchsurfing, Expedia, FlipKey, Hipmunk, Hostelworld, Hotels.com, HotelsCombined, Priceline and Stayful.
A panel of experts picked the initial 20 nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote. Experts Kash Bhattacharya (BudgetTraveller), Kim Orlando (TravelingMom.com) and Lydia Schrandt (10Best Editor) were chosen based on their extensive knowledge of budget travel.
10Best and USA TODAY extend their congratulations to all the winners.License the 10Best Readers' Choice Award Logo
