If you plan to book your South Tyrol trip by yourself, here are our go-to travel resources. After exploring the region for a decade, these are the tried and tested platforms and tools we use to find the best deals and travel stress-free. ✅
Best Accommodation Resources
When possible, we book accommodations through a provider vs. directly with the hotel. If you need to cancel or make changes to a reservation, it is much easier. Plus, by using a booking platform you can earn loyalty discounts and rewards points not available with most hotels.
Booking.com is our top choice for finding the best prices at virtually every hotel and resort in South Tyrol. On top of that, their mapping and filter tool makes it super easy to find the ideally-located accommodation matched with our preferred amenities and services. ⇒ SEARCH
Expedia is our second go-to booking platform. You can sometimes find a sweeter deal and more available properties. By the way, if you are a member of Hotels.com rewards program, use their platform, It is owned by Expedia and provides the same search results. ⇒ SEARCH
Rental Car Resources
South Tyrol has an excellent public transit system, but if you want to freely explore the region we recommend renting a car. Our trip planning guide details everything you need to drive in Italy safely and confidently.
We have great luck finding the best car rental deals on Discover Cars. As an aggregator site, they do the hard work for you and find the most affordable choices. In addition, they offer free cancellation and provide 24-hour assistance in English. We also like to check Auto Europe if we cannot find the car we want on Discover Cars. ⇒ SEARCH
Travel Insurance Resources
Travel insurance is the most important item to purchase before traveling to Italy. You never know what can happen while traveling abroad. And most health insurance plans don’t cover international travel. Purchasing the right travel insurance plan upfront covers injuries, illnesses as well as accidents and trip cancellations that may occur.
For only a few dollars a day, it is well worth the expense. To compare the best trip insurance plans, we use Yonder and Travel Insurance Master. Both are fast, convenient, and offer a variety of plans so you can find the right policy for your trip.
Money-Saving Tip: If you need to purchase items for your trip, check MountainSteals.com. They are an online outlet store selling top brands at up to 60% off. We shop here first before looking anywhere else. ⇒ SEARCH
If you are interested in learning Italian or German (or practically any language for that matter), we highly recommend Babbel. We purchased lifetime access at 50% Off and love learning with it. Both fun and addicting!
