The Ultimate Travel Resource Guide

I've spent a considerable amount of time collecting my favorite travel tools for you guys! Here is every one of my resources in one place. From getting cheap flights, to good rental cars, and proper wifi, you'll find it all!

Flights

Google Flights

This is my personal go-to. This site allows you to search and track flights worldwide and get notified by email when the prices change. Checkout my three-step guide to planning a trip abroad. 

Skyscanner

Skyscanner is a popular flight booking site that allows you to search all flights, everywhere. You can also choose an entire country as opposed to a city to find the cheapest options. Filter for flexible dates and times.

SeatGuru

SeatGuru.com is a website that features aircraft seat maps, seat reviews, and a color-coded system to identify superior and substandard airline seats.

Cars, Trains, Buses

Omio 

This is a European travel aid, find bus, train and flight tickets around Europe in one place. They even have an app!

Rome2Rio

Rome2rio searches any city, town, landmark, attraction or address across the globe with thousands of multi-modal routes to easily get you from A to B.

 

Rentalcars.com

This site offers the best rental car prices around the globe, and has a great 24-hour cancellation feature in case you run into travel delays.

Accommodation 

Airbnb

This is one of my favorite sites in the world. I have stayed at over 100 AirBnBs. These are home rentals that private citizens have put on the market. You can find great deals and wonderful, unique homes. 

 

Booking.com

This is a travel agency headquartered in Amsterdam. They have access to 120,000+ hotels and have great features that allow you to find the best prices. 

 

HostelWorld 

If you want to stay in hostels, this is a must! Hostel world has great review features where you can see how recent travelers felt, and they have the greatest variety, especially around Europe. 

Activities

Airbnb Experiences

This is a new feature by AirBnB, and it is wonderful! Locals sign up to give you a tour, or experience in their city. I’ve done walking tours, photos shoots, and beer baths. See all my experiences here

TripAdvisor

Tripadvisor, Inc. is an American online travel company that operates a website and mobile app with user-generated content, a comparison shopping website, and offers online hotel reservations as well as bookings for transportation, lodging, travel experiences, and restaurants.

 

Google Reviews

I am an avid google reviewer. Any place listed on google will have google reviews, and this is a great place to consider a hotel, restaurant or business abroad. 

Other Helpful Sites

The Points Guy

The Points Guy is an American travel website and blog that produces news and stories on travel, means of accumulating and using airline points and miles, politics and credit cards, in particular credit card reviews.

 

Seat61

This site specializes in overland travel. If you want to know how to get around a certain country, Seat61 will tell you. 

Pinterest

I love using Pinterest to plan my travel! This is a great place to go for travel inspiration and city guides. 

 

FlightsFrom

This is a great direct flight tool. The idea is being able to explore destination opportunities through non-stop flights from a specific airport. It's a tool to set up your business meeting or weekend holiday based on your time schedule and your closest airport.

Travel Gear

Nook E-Books

Reading is my favorite relaxing activity while traveling. I have a nook that I load with a few books before I leave. The charge lasts weeks, and it is so convenient. 

 

Travel Charger

Don’t forget your portable charger! The worst thing ever is running out of juice, while your driving through the middle of a foreign country. These are cheap and worth every penny. 

 

Canon EOS M50

Have a real camera has made travel extra enjoyable for me. I have a great starter camera I bought last year in Prague. And I am obsessed.

 

Universal Converter

Having one of these babies is so clutch. This converter works everywhere in the world.

VPNs and Digital

DropBox

Getting a DropBox is a great idea. It is an online hard drive that gives you protection while you’re on the move. I constantly upload photos just in case my camera gets stolen. 

 

Boingo

If has wifi hotspots all over the world, and in flight.

 

Express VPN 

When you connect to public or Wi-Fi networks in places like airports and cafés, hotels, anyone on this same network can potentially steal your data! Use a VPN like this one to stay protected.

 

Skyroam

Get unlimited WiFi in over 130+ countries around the world for as little as $9 a day or $99 per month! This is a great option if you’re border-hopping. 

 

Skype

Everyone knows about using Skype for video calls home for free — but it’s also very useful for cheap calls anywhere in the world. I just found this out, but it’s great for making calls home from abroad.
