Useful Links

Thanks to the Internet, there are a ton of resources we can check for practically every topic imaginable. Before, our problem was that sources of information were few and far between. Now, we have a different problem: far too many sources, and not all of them reliable at that. To help you out, I’ve listed the three sites I personally use regularly when planning my travels. Enjoy!

Kayak.com

At first glance, Kayak.com seems like a lot of the other websites out there that help you find flights and hotels for your trip. Beyond that, however, Kayak also lets you look for package deals for your trip.  In addition, Kayak also presents projections on how the prices may change based on date or time of the booking! While most websites that offer similar services in a pinch, Kayak is the one I like the best.

Accuweather.com

Regardless of what mode of travel you prefer, knowing the weather is always a must. Even if weather stations don’t get it right all the time, it’s still better to have an idea of what Mother Nature may be throwing against you. So far, accuweather has been my go to site for travels both here and abroad.

Backpacker.com

While primarily a website for people who love the outdoors, backpacker.com also offers a lot of great tips that can be used by people who travel in general. It offers pointers on how to pack properly, how to deal with situations that may be a hassle when away from the city (super useful when backpacking in out-of-the-way places, both here and abroad), and recommendations on travel gear.
