The best travel sites to help you plan the perfect trip

Jun 29, 2022

Traveling can be a great way to log off, relax, and recuperate from the stress of everyday life. But planning your next travel adventure? That can be a downright existential hellscape, a task that can quickly turn from exciting to tedious as you try to juggle various destinations, figure out the best time to travel, how to find the best deals, and what to do when you actually get there. And that's just the basics. Factoring in canceled flights and the hoops you need to go through to travel in our current day, the idea of traveling can eventually inspire a dull but persistent sense of dread. Fortunately, that's where the internet comes in. There are a variety of websites and apps designed to take the stress out of traveling and make sure that planning your next trip is as fun and easy as possible. For example, apps like HotelTonight(opens in a new tab) , which will help you find cheap hotel rooms on extremely short notice, and SitOrSquat(opens in a new tab) , which will direct you to nearby restrooms while you're already on the road, should be a part of the essential toolkit for any travelers. So whether you're you're looking for travel inspiration, trying to find plane tickets on the cheap, or looking for ways to make your life easier once you're on the ground at your next destination, here are the best apps and sites for travelers. If you're looking for travel inspiration: Armchair adventures begin with InstagramCredit: Getty images Instagram started as a simple photo-sharing app, but as the platform has developed over the years, it's transformed itself into a must-have app for travelers. With new features like the ability to turn on notifications for specific users (which lets you stay up-to-date with your favorite travel 'grammers), Instagram maps that let you explore photos taken at specific places, and the ability to save photos that inspire you, Instagram can be a great way to keep abreast of everything that inspires you to travel. We recommend following National Geographic , for a sneak peek at some of the most unique parks of the world, and With The Locals , which invites guest 'grammers from all over the world to curate hidden gems from their city. Snap Maps give a great insight into far flung places.Credit: Snapchat We've got two words for anybody surprised that Snapchat is an essential tool for travelers: Snap Maps . The feature, which launched in June 2017, shows users what other people are snapping, in real time, at any given destination. That means whether you're taking a digital tour of an area while trying to decided on your next travel destination, or if you're already on the ground and looking for your next activity, Snap Maps can help you discover hidden gems at any destination. Traveling with familiesCredit: Earth Trekkers For travel inspiration, you can always go to Pinterest — or you can also head to Earth Trekkers , especially if you're looking for family-friendly tips. Julie, Tim, Tyler, and Kara — two parents and their kiddos — spent a bit over a year traveling around the world, and they're looking to keep going. Apps to help you get up and go Credit: Francesca Tirico/ Unsplash TripAdvisor is your one-stop-shop for travel. Not only will the site help you book a flight to your next destination, but it'll also help you find hotels, vacation rentals, restaurants, and more. But the true beauty of TripAdvisor is its price comparison feature, which will show travelers where they can find the best deal when booking a trip. And who doesn't want to save a buck while traveling? Credit: Christopher Neugebauer/ Flickr If you don't want to have to juggle searching through multiple sites to look for and compare travel deals, Skyscanner is for you. The site uses a self-built technology to search through hundreds of travel sites for hotels, flights, and car rental deals. Plus Skyscanner launched a Facebook Messenger bot in 2016 to better help you book tickets on the go. Credit: Momondo Momondo is a travel search website that offers a cheap way to find flights, hotels, and car rentals. Rather than booking your tickets directly through the site, Momondo links out to the relevant booking sites, which means extra fees aren't tacked onto the price of your airfare. In other words, you can find flights that are good for your wanderlust and for your wallet. RoadTrippers is an invaluable toolCredit: RoadTRIPPERS You don't have to fly somewhere to embark on your next great adventure. Roadtrippers is a travel planning platform that will, as its title suggests, help you plan unforgettable road trips. Not only will Roadtrippers show you how to get from point A to point B, but it'll also create for you the most interesting route to your destination, highlighting great locations off the beaten path. Roadtrippers also let you sort based on things to do, sleeping, food and drink, "weird stuff," and more, which means your road trip can be as direct or as whimsical as your heart desires. If you're ballin' on a budget Credit: Nomadic Matt You don't have to pay exorbitant prices to be able to travel. Nomadic Matt specializes in budget travel, and promises to help you "travel anywhere better, cheaper, and longer." The site's founder, Matthew Kepnes, originally started out as a blogger , but over the years, the site has expanded, publishing everything from advice on how to save money for your next trip to suggestions on how to find cheap airfare and hotels. Then, once you've booked, the site also sells budget travel guides for destinations ranging from Paris to Bangkok. Credit: Hopper If you're looking to save money on airfare, Hopper is for you. By watching and analyzing ticket listings for billions of flights, Hopper will tell you when is the best time to buy tickets for your flight, when an airline drops ticket prices, and even help you calculate the extra fees accumulating while you plan your next trip. Credit: StudEnt universe StudentUniverse(opens in a new tab) bills itself as "the world's leading travel booking service for students and youth." With the goal of making travel easy and accessible to young travelers, StudentUniverse will help you find cheap flights, hotels, tours, activities, and more. Whoops! I Shoulda started planning sooner! Credit: HotelTonight When it comes to booking last-minute travel, HotelTonight(opens in a new tab) is the best of the best. The site helps you find last-minute hotel deals, or deals for hotels up to a week from your search, which means you'll always find a place to stay, even if you procrastinated. Credit: Google If there is one word that explains the strength of Google Flights it's "speed." With filters that let you sort based on the number of stops on your trip, the airline, time of day, and more, Google Flights offers travelers a quick and comprehensive look at available flight options. And with new features like the ability to predict delays , Google Flights will not only help you get to your next destination but make sure you're informed as you embark. If you're looking for a place to crash For when you need a place to stayCredit: Airbnb When Airbnb(opens in a new tab) first launched in 2008, it was a great way to find cheap and quick alternatives to staying in hotel. Now, Airbnb(opens in a new tab) is so much more than a platform to help you find a place to stay. With listings ranging from Mario-themed homes to homes designed to indulge your inner Star Wars ner d (and even the opportunity to go ghost hunting in Donald Trump's childhood home ), travelers can find sleeping accommodations that are just as exciting as the excursions at that their chosen destination. Audio walking toursCredit: detour Detour(opens in a new tab) is a great way to explore new locations, especially if you're traveling alone. The app curates more than 100 audio walking tours in 17 cities and counting, offering expert insights and additional information on locations ranging from The Vatican to Fenway Park. Helpful apps for once you're already on the road Credit: weather underground You know what they say: knowledge is power. Make sure you are prepared (and dressed weather-appropriately) for your day's adventures with Weather Underground(opens in a new tab) while you are traveling. With more than 250,000 personal weather stations, Weather Underground provides hyper-local forecasts. And in addition to the weather, the app can also show travelers what the temperature "feels like" at a given location, monitor things like air quality and flu outbreaks, and tells you the time of sunrise and sunset. Credit: SitOrSquat When you gotta go, you gotta go. SitOrSquat is an iOS and Android app that'll help you find public bathrooms so you can do the do, even when you're in an unfamiliar place. Credit: Google A language barrier should never stop you from traveling. Google Translate, available on both web and mobile, offers quick translations of more than 100 different languages. The app version also offers features like image translation that allows you to use your camera for instant text translation and offline translation, which makes translating on the go simple and easy. Expand your travel perspective: Traveling while queerCredit: Nomadic boys As a member of the LGBTQ community, traveling can have its difficulties for a whole host of reasons, most of which are rooted in transphobia and homophobia, like the experience of going through airport security and which nations are safest to travel to . Thankfully, there are a few sites dedicated to helping find those answers, like Nomadic Boys , Couple of Boys , Foodie Flashpacker , and Two Bad Tourists . Credit: On She Goes On She Goes is a travel platform designed to help women of color "travel more confidently, more adventurously and more often." With a mix of articles ranging from " What is travel safety for women of color in a racist, sexist world " and " Travel & financial anxiety is real but don't let it ruin your trip ," city guides, and travel tips, On She Goes is a must-read for anybody planning their next big trip or just wanting to find a community of fellow jet-setters of color.
