Ultimate List Of Travel Resources To Help You Travel Smarter

All the companies and products below are helpful to plan your trip or to design your own travel blog. I use all of them because they make my life easier. I will continue adding products to this list when I discover more.

TRAVEL RESOURCES ACCOMMODATION

Agoda is an amazing website to book hotel rooms. When I am travelling in Asia I do not use any other website. You can rate accommodations that you have booked online via Agoda and receive in return reward points which you can redeem for free nights.
Booking.com is another great platform to look for hotels. Low prices, great selection and an easy to use interface!
AirBnb connects you to homeowners who rent their apartment or house. You can use all the comfort and pay only a fraction of the cost of a hotel room.
Hostelworld is in my opinion the best website to search for hostels. You can find rooms and beds of more than 35.000 accommodations in 180 countries.
On Couchsurfing you can find people from all around the world that are offering their couch or spare room for free to travelers. It is a great way to save money on accommodations and at the same time you meet locals. In my opinion it is the best way to experience the real culture of a destination and to make new friends.

TRAVEL RESOURCES AIRFARE

Momondo is the first website I use when I am looking for a cheap flight. It searches a lot of different airlines and you can look for flights to a specific airport or any airport within a country or even continent. Moreover, you can choose an exact travelling date or search for the cheapest flight within +/- 3days. This is especially interesting when your travel destination and/ or date is flexible.

TRAVEL RESOURCES TRAVEL INSURANCE

SafetyWing offers a flexible & reliable Digital Nomads Travel Medical Insurance at just a third of the price of similar competitor plans. Click here for my full review.
When you are going on a trip you should definitely get a travel insurance. I recommend World Nomads. It covers health problems, Lost, Stolen or Damaged items such as phones and cameras as well as Cancellations & Delays.

TRAVEL GEAR

The Highland Trail Backpack from Jack Wolskin is so far the best one I have traveled with. It is super light, comfortable to carry and has sufficient pockets to organize your stuff. I especially like the dual access main compartment. The backpack is available for both men and women.

There is a discussion about whether a Macbook Pro or Macbook Air is more suitable for travel bloggers. In my opinion it is the Macbook Air because it has the big advantage that it is so super light and therefore easy to carry along while travelling. Moreover, the Macbook Air is sufficient to get my work done; e.g. photo editing, writing emails, updating my blog etc.
