I love to plan and do research before a trip! It gets me exciting for my upcoming travels. There are tons of travel websites and apps that are supposed to help you to have an unforgettable trip. Trying out a bunch of them myself, I discovered that not all of them are worth your time. Here is my collection of travel resources that I use personally.
This is my all time favorite travel website. You can use it to find amazing hotels, great hotspots and fun activities. Everything is reviewed. The app also allows you to download offline city guides.

This website is in my opinion the best and easiest way to compare hotels and find the right fit at the best price.
Rome 2 Rio
A travel search engine that offers the world’s transport information. It shows you all kinds of options to and from any location including your travel time and the price.
Different country, different money. Well, in most cases. Easily convert your home currency to the locals currency and vice versa.

Follow people, who inspire you or locals that share great tips. I love to discover places through Instagram! Check out my Instagram here!
This is an obvious one! I still like to use actual maps when discovering a city, but sometimes you need the help of your mobile friend.
Simply search in the app store for your destination and offline maps and you will probably find a few apps, that will navigate you in case you don’t have any internet.
You have probably encountered some situations that have required some knowledge of the local language. Besides that, it’s always nice to be able to understand a few words in a foreign language.
In a world with social media, finding wi-fi is always a big deal. This app shows you a map with all wi-fi spots near you, so that you can connect with home while traveling.
During my stay in Milan, we used Uber for the first time and it worked perfectly. Uber is your own private driver at a great price. I can only recommend it.
PS: Use this code (pdav3ue) to get 10€ off of your first Uber ride.
