Welcome to my travel resources page!
Most people agree that travelling is amazing but it can also be very stressful and hard to navigate.
Where should you go? How do you find the cheapest hotel? And could you get a better deal on this flight somewhere else?
I'm here to help you! So I've put together a list of my favourite travel websites that I use when I travel. These websites inspire me, help me keep track of everything and find me the best deals
Momondo is my go-to search engine for flights. It always seems to find the best prices and makes it really easy to specify your requirements for the trip.
Another great thing is the "Take Me Anywhere" function which helps you find the best travel destination for your needs.
Skyscanner is a great alternative or addition to Momondo if you want to double check the prices you found and make sure you got the best deal.
It compares flight prices across multiple sites and also has an explore function so you can get inspired to visit some new places.
You can't say search without saying Google, and now that they have Google Flights, travelling is no different.
It's the fastest way to look up flight times and prices - just do the search on Google and they will show you all the available results or press the link to their explore function.
AirWander is the perfect way to make the most out of your trips or long flights by adding stopovers.
A stopover is a layover that is more than 24 hours, which gives you the possibility to explore multiple destinations on your trip or make those long flights bearable by adding a break in a nice city.
Hopper is my favourite app to track the flight prices on a specific trip or just to get notified when there's a good deal.
I always set up a tracker for the weekends I know I'll be travelling and Hopper notifies me when it is the best time to buy the tickets, but I also use it to get inspiration.
Hotels.com is my go-to site for booking accommodation when I'm travelling. I always find very nice and affordable places and with their reward system, every 11th night is free (based on the average of your previously booked hotels). (If you are new to Hotels.com, get $50 off your first booking)
Airbnb connects you with homeowners who rent out their apartment/house. It is a great way to get a feeling of how the locals live or to get a chance to stay in the non-touristy parts of the city. (If you are new to Airbnb, get $35 off your first stay!)
TRVL is a new way to look for hotels. It searches the top hotel search engines for the best prices and lets you be inspired by local experts or other travellers.
Click the link to see my favourite destinations or use the search bar at the top of the site to find the best price for your own dream destination.
Hostels aren't for everyone, but they are very affordable and a great way to meet other travellers.
Hostelworld is the best way to search for hostels around the world with their database of over 35.000 properties in 170 countries.
Couchsurfing is a unique concept where people offer their spare room or a couch to travellers from around the world for free. It is not for everyone, but if you don't mind the idea of sleeping on someone's couch it's a great way to meet the locals and save some money on your trips.
Hotel Tonight is a great app if you are the impulsive type or if you are on a road trip and don't want to book accommodation in advance.
It gives you a list of available rooms for the night and often saves you a lot of money because it's cheaper for the hotel to give you a discount than to have an empty room. (If you are new to Hotel Tonight, use my code ANMRCK to get $25 off your first booking)
TripAdvisor is a great all-around travel planner. It lets you search for activities, restaurants, flights, and hotels and you can add all of it to a personal travel plan that you can share with your friends or family, so you can plan together.
I use it to keep track of all the things I want to see and do and to read other people's reviews of a place.
Just like TripAdvisor, TribHobo lets you create a custom plan for your trip and suggests the best hotels and activities.
You can even ask it to fill out the itinerary for you, and it will come up with the best plan for the time you have.
Roadtrippers is the best site out there if you are planning a road trip in the States. It lets you plug in the things you want to see and automatically calculates the best route. It also helps you find things to do, restaurants, hotels and gas stations near the route.
If you want inspiration you can use the pre-made guides and adjust them to fit your own needs.
Tripit is my go-to site for keeping track of my trips. It automatically imports all of your plane tickets, hotel reservations, etc., and creates an itinerary that syncs with your calendar so you never miss a thing.
The pro version gives you real-time flight alerts, helps you find the best seat, checks if you can get a fare refund, and many other things.
Most people know Lonely Planet for their amazing guidebooks, but they also have a ton of online guides with beautiful pictures and very useful maps.
If you prefer to be inspired visually instead of through reading, check out their videos which will definitely bring out the wanderlust!
Rome2rio lets you look up the fastest or cheapest way to get from one place to another. Just simply put in your departure and arrival locations and it searches for all the available routes.
I often use this tool to figure out how to get to smaller cities that don't have their own airport or to travel distances that aren't long enough to fly.
Citymapper is my favourite transportation app. I use it almost every day in Copenhagen where I live and if it is available I use it when travelling too.
Citymapper gives you a complete overview of the public transportation with live arrival times, prices and multiple transportation methods.
They are constantly adding new cities, so keep an eye out for your hometown.
