Travel Resources

To get good value for money and travel more, you need to have great travel resources. This page lists a bunch of websites and services that I personally use when planning and booking my trips.


Accommodation Booking

Offering more than 800,000 hotels, hostels and apartment worldwide. They also have a free cancellation policy and a best price guarantee.


Find unique home’s and apartments all over the world. It’s a great way to live like a local and save some money compared to traditional hotels. I even have $25 of free credit off your first stay.


The Best Hostel booking website, I use this to search and book all of my hostels when backpacking around the world.

Finding Flights


Skyscanner is my favorite  flight search engine. With great search options allowing you to search from locations to “Everywhere” it’s a great way to find cheap flights. Head  over to my Cheap Flights Page for more tips on finding a bargain flight.


Expedia is one of the biggest online travel companies. With lots of options to search for flights and hotels. I usually check them as well as SkyScanner when looking for budget flights.

Finding Transport

The Man In Seat 61

The ultimate guide to finding train travel anywhere in the world. Lots of information on times, routes and prices. If you are planning a train journey anywhere in the world this should be your first stop.



Looking to extend your trip by volunteering in a hostel or farm. With lots of listings in many countries.Workaway is my favorite website for finding volunteer opportunities when travelling.


Similar to WorkAway, HelpX is another volunteer website great for finding placements in farms, hostels, B&B’s and anything in between.

Travel Gear

World Nomads

My favorite travel insurance provider. I have used them on all of my trips in the last 6 years. from small weekend getaways, working holiday insurance, long backpacking adventures to most recently my 12 day trek through the Himalayas.
