We are busy working to identify the very best complementary resources and programs for our visitors. Why is this important? Because we want to provide you with up to date relevant information so you will come back to visit again – and tell your friends!.
As much as we enjoy writing about travel, it does take time, and our reward comes when you use our travel partners. You will find links to some around the site, but most are in the booking section. Also, don’t forget the great selection of tours we have made available that can make your experience one you will never forget! You will also find a complete list of our these resources on our Travel Partners page.
So in addition to the helpful resources below, if you are looking to book a trip, take a tour or even just buy a book about travel, please check with one of our partners first. We specialise in providing you the resources to find the best possible price for your travel budget.
That said, we thought you might like to see some of the resources we have found helpful. Check back, because these are updated regularly:
Ready to go? First thing to do is check the weather, and a great great place to start is the Holiday Weather website.
If you are really a weather junkie and want to be amazed, try the Norway weather site, yr.no. Not just for Norway, you can get hourly forecasts for almost anywhere on the planet – and we’ve found them almost weirdly accurate!
Want the latest facts on your destination? Use the World FactBook.
Travel health information can be found at the US Center for Disease Control.
Travel is for everyone, and even if you have a disability, you should make every effort to get out and see the world. Almost all of our content is our own, but when Laura Miller contacted us about her article, Travelling with a Medical Condition, we thought it was important to share it.
Nurses Forum provides forums, nursing jobs searches, free resume postings, information on schools, news, travel nursing and more.
We also like the handy XE.com Travel Expenses Calculator. This is essentially a multi-currency expense report creator to help you keep up with your expenses, regardless of if you travel for business or pleasure, wherever you go in the world.
There are lots of train sites out there where you can get schedules, but most are really focused on their own national rails. The best, however, is Germany’s Deutsche Bahn’s site, Die Bahn which has outdone them all with schedules of anything that moves on rails anywhere in Europe. An added bonus is that if you are traveling in certain countries (Germany of course is one), the timetable even gives you the platform number. No information on where on the platform to stand, but we expect they will add it soon!
And finally, if you are a frequent traveler, MoneyCorp can provide a broad range of currency conversion services.
Car Hire Companies are out of control! Need to hire a car in Europe? The state of the industry is terrible! Practically all the car hire companies won't even rent to you unless you take their [...]
