Useful travel websites

Hello to you, reader! If you’re reading this, you’re probably not so keen on organising your trips with a travel agency. You prefer to do your planning on your own, don’t you?

Well, that requires quite the effort and skills which can be extremely helped and improved by this list of websites covering different areas of your travel. Of course I skipped the obvious ones like Skyscanner or Hostelworld. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Enjoy!

Transport

Busbud

Skiplagged

  2. These are really helpful especially for first time travelers. I like the Foodspotting site. Would be great to get cuisine from places you stay and not just the commercialized stuff you can get back home. Will bookmark this!

  3. I have definitely bookmarked your page. Being a somewhat seasoned travel, I appreciate the fact that a large portion of the sites you’ve introduced are new to me. I’ll especially look forward to checking out skiplagged and foodspotting.
