Have you heard of the new travel planning and hotel booking platform called Plannin

It was designed to help you find all the hotels your favorite creators (like me 😉) have stayed at – with access to deep discounts (we’re talking up to 40% off compared to what you would find on other sites, like Booking or Expedia, for example)!

On Plannin, creators add their personal tips, photos, videos and things to know about their favorite hotels. 

It’s a brilliant way to sift through all the impersonal and anonymous (and sometimes fake, AI-generated) hotel reviews on other sites. 

But the best feature is that many of the 2 million + hotels worldwide are up to 40% less than the exact same hotels you’ll find on other sites. 

All you have to do is create a free account and you’re all set to find great deals.

I’ve added all my favorite hotels I’ve stayed at so you can browse through my recommendations the next time you’re planning a trip!

As a way to say thank you for helping me reach 75,000 subscribers on YouTube, I’m giving away a $250 (usd) credit to use towards booking your next hotel stay on Plannin! 

All you have to do is sign up for your free account here and you’re entered to win!

Entries are accepted now until April 15, 2024 (so…maybe share with a friend who’d be kind enough to take you along if they win)! 

Contest now closed – stay tuned for another giveaway in the future!

Here’s How Plannin Works

If you’re planning an upcoming trip but haven’t booked your accommodations yet, take a peak around Plannin and see what kind of deals might be available for your destination.

I searched some random dates (maybe not so random…perhaps this is a hint for future content coming your way 😉) for April 28 – 30, 2024 and saw that the Cosmopolitan was on sale:

As you can see in the images above, the exact same room for the same dates is $109.87 cheaper than Expedia on Plannin!

Here’s a more affordable option in Las Vegas – the Flamingo Hotel (with one of the best pools on the Strip):

Again, the exact same room at the Flamingo is $39.25 less expensive than if you booked it through Booking.
