Cool Cousin is a desktop and smartphone platform that gives travelers the chance to connect with vetted locals who share their interests and discover recommendations for eating, drinking and meeting people in their city’s favorite spots. As a ‘Cousin’ you will be able to help local businesses, as well as form connections with an international community of explorers who are looking for more than just the typical tourist traps.

 

The central feature of Cool Cousin is the ability to view individuals’ city guides, including categories such as food, coffee, nightlife, shopping, arts, culture and outdoor activities. Not only can these be filtered to view only the items that interest you, they can also be downloaded to view in offline mode. I find the ability to do this incredibly useful, particularly when I am on the go as data roaming charges can be vastly expensive, while using data runs down the battery on smartphones significantly faster than when it is deactivated.

 

Another aspect of the platform that I especially like is the level of detail provided for each recommended establishment. As well as helpful information on things like opening times and address, you can also read the personal perspective of the ‘Cousin’ and why they have chosen it as one of their suggestions. You can discover characteristics of the place that would otherwise be difficult to find out, such as atmosphere or the best time to visit. This makes for a far more personalized experience when searching for recommendations, particularly in comparison to guidebooks or travel documentaries.

 

What’s more, if you feel as though there is information lacking and you would like to find out more from the local, there is an easy messaging service for the platform that allows users to connect directly with the ‘Cousins’ and ask questions to add depth to the recommendations.

 

One area I feel they could make improvements is their ‘Stories’ section, which features a range of articles from various writers on lots of city-relevant topics. While the content is fine, there is no area for readers to leave their own feedback, something

Pros
  • Filter categories
  • Offline mode
  • Lots of information on various locations

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
