best-travel-resources-2018/

Hello, there reader

If you are tired of trying out many travel websites for the best flights, accommodations, gears, and gadgets, look no further. After years of full time/part time traveling, I’ve spent hours trying to figure out how to travel cheaper and better. This is a collection of the best travel resources when it comes to flights, accommodation, gear, travel insurance, and more.

I have personally used all of these items listed here and recommend to you. Let’s go!

Find Cheap Flights

TIP: Remember to use an incognito window for searching or clear your browser’s cache after searching to avoid price increases!

1. Skyscanner

Sick of going through hundreds of airline websites to find that cheapest flight? Look no further. Skyscanner lets you search “everywhere” to see where is cheaper to fly to and from! It also lets you search full month if you are flexible with dates. I was impressed to find the lowest one-direction prices per day over the month so I could change my dates to adjust for lower prices.This saves a lot of time of multiple queries to compare the best dates. This is my first go- to website for comparing between flight prices.

2. Momondo

I started using Momondo frequently now because I tend to find cheaper flights here than anywhere else. I like the filter by airline alliance, which is also helpful when trying to earn frequent flyer miles in a particular loyalty program. It also displays an overview of information about your route and the factors that affect the price.  You can refine the filter by selecting the tabs along the top, Airline, Seasonality, Days to Departure, Airport, Day of Week, and Time of Day, you’ll see a separate breakdown of these price factors. You’ll learn how far in advance you should book your flight for the best price, which months are the cheapest or the most expensive, and which airlines tend to offer the lowest prices for your route.

3. CheapOair

The best thing about CheapOair is their price drop payback perk. It has extensive partnerships with top travel brands and a wide breadth of inventory. Hence I find it worthwhile to check out their diversified travel services and score the best flight deals. Recently I needed to change one of my flight and based on my previous experience with online travel sites, I was thinking it was going to be a hassle to get it sorted. However, because of their quality customer support, it was resolved in no time.

4.  WhichBudget

If you are a frequent flyer and constant traveler, you should benefit from this site. This is a great website that tells you exactly which budget airlines fly between destinations.  I have used it myself plenty of times.

Find Suitable Accommodation

1. Airbnb

Like myself, you must have worked hard for your travels and excited to plan your adventures. Good news is – I have partnered with Airbnb to offer my readers $50 to book their next accommodation. If you would like to take advantage of $50 credit, click here.
Throughout my travels around the world, Airbnb has been the first place I look up for my accommodation because I love the feeling of being home even when I am away in a new country. I’ve also written about being a good guest while doing Airbnb which you can read here.

2. Agoda

Do you want the best price for a fancy hotel stay or a cozy backpacker? I find that Agoda most often has the best rates for booking hostels and hotels. They have the best selection and almost always have the lowest rates in Asia in particular, but in recent years they’ve expanded well over the rest of the world. I like their Insider deals and love how you can also earn flying points with your bookings!

3. Booking.com

Another one of my go-to resources for accommodation planning. They have a great selection of hotels, usually very low prices, and no fees. I love their Deals of the Day!

4. Hotels Combined

If you want to a  website to search all the top travel sites for the best hotel deals. Then you have found it! On top of that Hotels Combined will even refund the difference if you find a cheaper price with one of the sites listed in their search. Thye have made how quick and easy it is to compare prices.

5. Couchsurfing

It is a community of world travelers dedicated to connecting and sharing. Couchsurfing is far more than just free accommodation though. While you could stay for free around the world and pay it forward and/or reciprocate, you can also use it to find local community events and meet people in different cities. I have also written a blog post re Couchsurfing fees which you can read it here.

Travel Insurance

World Nomads

I recommend World Nomads for almost all travelers. You can buy and claim online, even after you’ve left home! Travel insurance from WorldNomads.com is available to people from 140 countries. It can also be easily extended as many times as you’d like and the site is easy to navigate. It’s designed for adventurous travelers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities. As with all insurance, be sure to read the fine print and make sure it’s right for you.

Overland Travel Resources

1. Skyscanner Car hire

I like how instantly you can compare prices with Skyscanner car hire. Then book directly with the car rental company of your choice. It’s so easy! You can find cheap car hire fast and hit the road as soon as you land. You can also hire cars for between airport transfers as well.

2. Seat61

Do you want to know how to get around a certain country via train or overland? Seat61 will tell you! I recommend it because it has an incredibly comprehensive guide which is full of information on train and overland travel around the world.

3. Greyhound, Megabus, and Bolt Bus

If you want to save money then, these are your best bets. Long-distance buses generally have air conditioning, reading lights, adjustable seats, and free wifi. In Laos intercity buses, there were none of the facilities mentioned above but a double sleeping bed inside the bus! Australia’s national coach operator, the Greyhound, offers hop on hop off passes for popular routes, short trip passes and flexible passes based on the number of kilometers you wish to travel.

I have personally used all three of them during my travels to Europe, Australia, and Canada. It was hard not to when you can get $1 fares on the Megabus and Bolt Bus. I once traveled from Florence to Pisa for $1 on the Megabus and from Auckland to Rotorua for $1 via Intercity Bus in New Zealand.

4. TrainLink for Australia

I find Train travel is a convenient, affordable and scenic way to explore Australia. TrainLink runs services between Sydney and the regional centers of New South Wales and along Australia’s east coast to Melbourne, Brisbane, and Canberra. There are also spectacular rail journeys such as The Ghan and Indian Pacific, which sweep across the continent, offering comfort and a sense of nostalgic slow adventure.

5. RailEurope

If you aren’t sure whether to buy your tickets directly from your destination’s train system or through a booking site, I recommend using Rail Europe. They make it simple to do everything from planning routes to checking times to buy tickets.

6. Virgin Trains

There is no booking fee here! One of the reasons why I used it and recommend to book trains while traveling in the UK.

7. Vacations To Go

If you are you looking for a cruise at an unbelievably low price, I recommend checking out Vacations To Go first. This private membership site (which anyone can join) displays rock-bottom cruise prices that you won’t find anywhere else.

Travel Gears

I have created a list of 7 best travel gadgets for 2018, which you can find it here. Below are the travel gears I use personally and consider essentials.

Swissgear 1900 ScanSmart Laptop Backpack

This is my day bag. I store all my technology products here ie: my Laptop, photography pieces of equipment, chargers, as well as my valuables, and never leaves my side while traveling. My favorite part is unobstructed, ScanSmart lay-flat design that helps speed through airport security by allowing laptop-in-case scanning through TSA X-ray machines.

Osprey Sojourn

If you are tired of not well-made backpacks. Consider Osprey Sojourn. It is so strong and sturdy, yet not too heavy. I love how this works as a backpack but if need as a rolling suitcase as well. I like to use this for my long term years long trips.

Mountain Designs ESCAPE 30 L

Now, why do I have a third backpack listed here? Because dear reader, my life has changed from a heavy backpacker to a minimalist one. This change took awhile but glad I finally made the change and couldn’t be happier. This backpack comes fully padded with back support, durability and more. My shoulder feels good! Perfect for a minimalist and/or good choice for a night to about a month’s trip.

Pacsafe Portable Safe

Have you ever been to a hostel or accommodation where there is no safe? Now, you can put your belongings in here and lock it to the strongest thing in your room (pipes are best, but use whatever you have). Use it with a quality combination lock so you don’t have to worry about losing the key.

eBags Packing Cubes

You will be amazed how these packing cubes will help you fit in more than you thought you could and take you from squashing everything in your backpack to organized and efficient packing. I use the flat Spacepak for dresses and larger items. The eBags ones are long and narrow and I use one for tops, one for bottoms, and one for underwear, bras, bathing suits, and socks.

Safety Whistle/ Pepper Spray/Rubber Doorstop

These are so lightweight, I recommend it to all the travelers of all genders. If you are endangered, trapped under something, lost or isolated in the remote areas, sea or deep in the forest or mountain high; a loud whistle brings attention.  Hopefully loud enough to alert people to your location.

Pepper Spray, on the other hand, could be useful in situations where someone is not respecting your personal space.

Another safety item I recommend is rubber doorstop. Usually, you will have a lock if you have a private room, but just in case, you don’t shoving a doorstop beneath the door will make it difficult for people to enter your room.

Travel Smart Containers

If you are worried about spilling your shampoo or body wash or even your contact lens solutions; it makes sense to purchase these containers. They come in various size and travel-friendly with a ziplock bag as well. Must have when you travel with carry on only.

I must tell you I walk A LOT! I feel I can see, smell and get better vibes of the new places that way.  So, if you also love walking around good quality walking shoes is a must. I recommend Nike Air because this pair of shoes has lasted me longer than any other walking shoes and is super duper comfortable.

Shoe Heaters

If you are going to be hiking or trekking somewhere a bit chilly like I did in Mt Everest Base Camp, the Therma CELL Heated Insoles can keep your feet both warm and dry throughout the journey. They incorporate water resistant material and an in-built shoe thermostat to make your trip as comfortable and high-tech as possible. Also, they come in various size.

A No-sand Beach Bag

Let’s say you’re planning to explore the 40-plus miles of sandy beaches in Orange County, California. (Check out www.visittheoc.com!) You need to bring a beach bag along, but you remember how impossible it is to keep the sand out of those bags.

Now there is a solution. The Sandless Beach Tote is made of woven strands of PVC and/or PE material that are ideally spaced to drop the sand but nothing else. And the material is also mold/mildew resistant, so there’s no need to worry about moisture. Its strong stitches won’t easily break, and it has a handy pocket inside to keep your phone/wallet dry.

All Clear UV Purifier Bottle

In many rugged areas where more and more people are going on adventure-travel excursions, it’s possible you could lose access to pure drinking water for hours on end or even days. You can’t risk drinking bacterially infected water, but you have to quench your thirst. And you might even have this sort of problem in a hotel room in some remote areas, not just out on the trail.

The CamelBak All Clear UV purifier bottle solves the problem. It can purify virtually any water into safe drinking water in only one minute. The system kills off harmful germs with UV radiation. It can handle a little less than a quart at a time.

Travel Photography

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Digital Camera

This has been my favorite Camera so far. I love how my pictures come out crisp and colorful. It also has a screen which is useful when vblogging. You can check out what I meant on my Instagram which is here.

GoPro HERO4 Silver

This is my good old Go pro that I take with me everywhere. I recommend it because it is small, light weight and waterproof. I have had made many memories with this trusted iteam and looking forward to more.

SanDisk 64 GB Memory Cards

I been using SanDisk since my first camera which was back in 2009. They build quality memory cards. I recommend getting at least two, just in case something happens to one of them.

All-in-One Memory Card Reader

Do you think it’s a hassle of plugging your camera into your computer? This memory card reader will fit cards of all sizes and make an easy transfer to your computer. The reader supports all popular SD memory card formats, including SD™/SDHC™/SDXC™ memory cards, UHS-I SDHC/SDXC memory cards, and microSDHC™/microSDXC™ memory cards. It is also compatible with the latest UDMA 7-enabled CompactFlash cards.

 

Technology and Digital Resources

Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5

This is one piece of technology I truly admire. I love its camera and changeable battery options. So, if you ran out of battery you don’t have to go around looking for charging plug ASAP; you can simply put another one of your fully charged battery. I also recommend getting an unlocked phone as it is extremely helpful when you want to use oversea’s sim cards.

MacBook Air

I was a windows girl and loved it. However, I have now made the switch to Macbook because of its light weight and convenience. Thanks to my dear sister for this wonderful present. This is a debate between Apple or windows laptops and phones. As for my personal use of the internet, creating presentations, blogging, emails, editing, movies, music- Macbook air seems to be the right fit.

iPad

Remember those times when it’s too small to read on your phone and too big to read on the Laptop in bed? I was there too! Then 2 years ago I bought Apple iPad. I’m impressed how it is still going strong without any technical issues. It is handy to read books, has a backlight option to read at night! It is nice weight, slick, and comes with a touchscreen. I even use it for editing my Youtube videos.

Seagate Expansion 2TB External Hard Drive

I highly recommend this item if you have a laptop and lots of pictures. This is a quality hard drive for a good price. And is extremely easy to use and save all your pictures, movies and more.

PRODA Rechargeable Power Bank 10000

This is another travel item I always carry with me unless I forget. Whenever I take this out, people always ask me about it. My PRODA rechargeable power bank holds enough power to charge my phone  SIX  times and can charge an Apple device, USB cord, or microdevice. I use it Everyday. Oh, and it has a light! That is always handy at nights when camping or trekking.

Skross World Travel Adaptor 3

This universal adaptor will have you covered for almost everywhere in the world. I bought it 2 years ago and still travels with me everywhere I go. (Keep in mind that some countries with unusual plugs are best off picked up upon your arrival in the country.)

GoTenna

When backpacking in remote regions, it’s not uncommon to lose your cell phone signal. GoTenna is a small radio plus antenna that can fit into your pocket. It works in tandem with your smartphone to help you communicate with other smartphones up to 50 miles away in any direction (under ideal conditions). It just might save your life, get you “un-lost,” or let you communicate important information to your travel partners who aren’t right there with you at the moment.

Mini Power Strip

When you return from a long time without power like I did during my Mount Everest Base Camp Trek and need to charge everything you own in a hurry, from phone to laptop to iPad to multiple camera batteries, this lets you charge several devices from a single outlet.

Boingo

Usually,  most Airports have free wifi between 30 mins to an hour. In case they don’t or you are traveling to a new country like Japan or South Korea where you have to be a member of WIFI networks to use WIFI (Boingo is a partner). Boingo makes it easy to access Wi-Fi on any device at more than 1 million hotspots worldwide, including airports, hotels, cafes, stadiums and more. It has a variety of plans for you to access them.

Dropbox/ Google Drive

I keep ALL of my important documents backed up in Dropbox and Google drive because hard drives can fail and laptops can be stolen.  My passport, visa papers, contracts and more. Dropbox has a subscription fee module like iTunes but Google Drive is free. However, I highly recommend both of them.

Skype

If you are traveling and want to call or video chat for free- it is a useful app to have as long as you have WIFI. And the best part is – Skype also lets you make cheap calls anywhere in the world, whether your bank at home, a hostel abroad or a client call overseas.  I top it up to $200 about once a year. I love how easy is it to make that international call or meeting now.

    Never heard of Momondo before. Thanks for that link. A lot of those links were ones I (and most travelers) were already familiar with but you had some that I had not seen before, which was a great resource. Maybe you should consider an addition to the post like “travel links off the beaten path” for some of the other resources that readers might not be as familiar with.

    Have you had any dealings with momondo? All of these are great resources. For someone who travels this is much needed!

    Wow, you have some great travel resources here. I can’t live without Google Maps and the Rome 2 Rio app.

    So true, it’s endless searching the web for the best deals when you’re preparing for the next trip. Nice that you’ve listed all those sites for best flight deals, didn’t use some of them so far, but I’ve bookmarked. 😉
    And as for the photo gear, I wouldn’t trade my Canon camera for anything, even though it’s been used for several years now! 🙂

    I love Vacations To Go. I use them every time I book a cruise. I also rely lot on SkyScanner to help our family save on flights. There some resources here I haven’t heard of yet and I am excited to look into them.
