All of these sites are life savers when it comes to planning, budgeting, and finding the best deals. Can’t recommend them enough!
Airbnb: This booking site is becoming more and more popular since it’s a great alternative for lodging. It is not nearly as pricey as hotels and can cost the same or even less than a hostel. You can find great accommodations and a chance to get the local experience.
Triposo: Looking for accessible information about your destinations before and during your trip? Triposo is the easiest way to get inspired, learn about culture, places to visit, and access tips and itineraries from other travelers. The best part… it works offline!
Rome2rio: The easiest way to plan your travel itinerary, especially if you’re on a budget. This site helps you search any city, town or landmark and shows you how to get from one place to another, including all kinds of transportation with all pricing options.
Kayak: Good ol’ Kayak… oh so commercial, but oh so useful! After checking for possible itineraries on Rome2Rio, this was my go-to for finding the cheapest flights possible (including flights on Ryanair).
