Useful Travel Resources That You Should Check to Plan a Trip

Different people like to plan their trips in different ways. Some are happy just booking a flight and winging it the rest of the way, while others prefer to know exactly where they’re going to stay, what places they want to visit, and what restaurants are nearby to eat in.

Regardless of how detailed a plan you intend to make, there are several useful travel resources that you should check that could provide you with helpful information to plan your trip:

  • Official government websites are a great resource for information about the visas you may need and you should check your own government’s foreign ministry equivalent. Some, such as the US State Department will provide additional information as well regarding immunizations, fees, and safety conditions.

    Aside from that you could check the official tourism website of your destination for helpful advice as well.

  • Flight comparison websites such as SkyScanner are a useful resource to help you plan your flight and find cheaper tickets. Nowadays there are several such websites available, and if you want to be thorough you could search on multiple websites just to check that you have the cheapest fare.

    Aside from that websites such as that list special deals and discounts for certain locations may be helpful for budget travelers.

  • Accommodation resources will let you browse through the accommodation available in the places you want to visit. Some such as and Airbnb offer a wide range of accommodation ranging from budget to luxury options. 

  • Destination guides, travel blogs, and travel videos are all excellent resources that you can easily find all over the web and will allow you to research your destination. Between them you should be able to find ample information about anything you want to know, including places of interest, activities, food, transportation, culture, and everything in between. 

    It is generally best to look for resources that match your interests or budget – such as specific budget travel guides or blogs, or travel videos that focus on the types of activities you’re interested in.

Between these resources you should be able to get as much information as you need to plan your trip. Be sure to save any information that you think will actually be useful while you’re traveling on your mobile device, so that you can refer to it at any time.

If you’re want to save video or audio files but are worried that they won’t fit in your mobile device – you can always convert and compress them. For example you could use Movavi Video Converter for that and convert M4A to MP3.

At the end of the day always remember that it is better to have information and not need it, than it is to need it at not have it. That should be your ethos as you plan your trip, and as much as you may ‘wing’ some parts of it – you should be aware of what to expect, at least roughly.
