I love planning trips. Researching things to do, reading up on history and culture, planning my itinerary. It’s fun.

There are, however, parts of trip planning that can be tedious.

Trying to find a cheap flight can be stressful. Booking accommodation can be too. I mean, how do you know if a hotel is actually good? How do you know what reviews are legit?

While I’ve gotten pretty good at picking out hotels when I go somewhere new, I’m also not afraid to leave a hotel if it’s not what I expected. But that’s a big hassle, wasting time and money in the process.

Fortunately, there’s a website I recently came across that can help make the hotel booking process a bit easier. And it can save you money too. It’s called Plannin.


What is Plannin?

Founded by two former executives of, Plannin is a free membership site that helps you save up to 40% on hotel bookings. As a member, you’ll get exclusive discounts on hotels worldwide. They have over 2 million properties on their site, and more are being added all the time.

In addition to searching for hotels as you would other online booking websites you’re familiar with, Plannin lets creators make accounts that you can follow. That way, you can see honest reviews from bloggers and influencers that you already follow on social media. You can also follow them on Plannin for future travel suggestions and reviews.

They currently have over 1,000 creators on the platform. And since they share actual photos and video content of each hotel (because they stayed there themselves), you can book with confidence knowing the photos and videos of the property are accurate and up-to-date.

How It Works

Plannin is super easy to use. You simply visit the website and sign up (it’s free).

Once your account is created, you’ll be able to start searching for hotels in the same way you would on traditional travel booking sites. However, when you search, creator-recommended hotels pop up first, with highly-rated hotels from Plannin’s trusted hotel supply partners (, Priceline, and Agoda) populating the list next.

You can also display the results on a map if there’s a particular area of your desired destination that you want to stay in.

At a glance, you’ll be able to see each hotel’s nightly price, star rating, amenities, a few photos, and key features like whether there’s free cancellation, free breakfast, or a pay later option.
