Whether you want to visit the Alhambra in Granada, Picasso Museum in Malaga, climb the Giralda in Seville, or even hop on a plane to London, travelsupermarket.com will help you find the best deals for hotels, car rentals, cruises and flights to and from the UK.

Their system searches hundreds of travel websites to offer users unbiased, real time availability taken from all sorts of suppliers including no frills and charter airlines. EasyCar, Sol Melia, First Choice, British Airways, Thomas Cook, EasyJet, Monarch Airlines, ebookers and more.

The basic idea behind the site is to help users avoid wasting precious time and energy studying all the options one at a time. The key to their success is simple. By giving users access to more than 650 scheduled, low cost and charter airlines, 200,000 hotels and over 200 car hire providers and then ranking the results in order of price, it’s a sure way to avoid spending hours trawling through the Web.

The site covers all the bases. In particular it tracks hundreds of different companies to find the best deal for buying travel insurance online. All you have to do is fill in a few basic details: dates of your trip and your age, and it returns a list of results in order of the price of the premium, including information about the cover you’ll get in a clear tabular format. Holidayextras, insurefortravel.co.uk, Top Dog Insurance, AA. The list is endless. When faced with so many choices travelsupermarket.com does all the groundwork. Just remember: they only offer travel insurance policies for UK residents.

Part of Moneysupermarket.com Group PLC, travelsupermarket.com is a fresh, simple and user-friendly tool for helping English-speakers find great deals on the internet. It’s parent website, moneysupermarket.com, has provided consumers with a tool to compare personal finance products and save money since it was set up in 1999. Personal loans, credit cards, mortgages, current accounts, savings accounts, mobile phones, broadband and shopping. Motor, home, health and travel insurance. If you’re looking for any of these services in the UK, give it a shot!

But that’s not all. Behind the scenes is an inspirational story. Simon Nixon dropped out of university in 1993 to set up a mortgage sourcing magazine taking advantage of a gap in the market: the lack of a mortgage comparison product. By 2006 the resulting website, moneysupermarket.com, had made more than 100 million pounds. At present travelsupermarket.com, an offshoot of the original site, generates an average of 3.5 million visitors per month and when asked about expansion to cover more flight combinations their answer was simply “watch this space”. Dynamism and energy in an entrepreneurial internet company that won’t cost you a thing.
