Gap Year is a social network and travel advice website committed to providing users with helpful information on taking a gap year. They offer expert tips on travelling, volunteering and working abroad, as well as inspirational ideas, opportunities and products.

 

The website is easy to use, with a search bar allowing users to enter keywords to quickly bring up suggestions. If you are not sure exactly what you’re looking for, there are plenty of inspiring ideas on the homepage divided into categories, including tours, volunteering, internships, summer camps and working with animals. My favourite section, however, is the one featuring inspirational articles about backpacking and gap years. All their travel articles are written by people with first-hand experience and offer advice on everything from making friends in hostels to taking the perfect photo.

 

Another feature of the platform is the packages they offer, or ‘Experiences’ as they are called on the website. These range from art tours across Europe to journalism internships in Australia, and can be selected from anywhere between a few days and a year. However, that being said, for me a lot of them seemed to be very overpriced for what they included. A 22-day trip from Madrid to Berlin cost upward of $3500, far more than you would spend in three weeks if you were budgeting by staying in backpacker hostels yourself.

 

A section that I found very useful, however, was the packing guide. This entails a travel checklist for backpacking, which provides advice on what clothes to bring, essential travel documents, travel accessories and even the best backpacks to buy. Packing can often be the most stressful part of planning a trip and this free guide is a great resource for reducing some of that panic.

Pros
  • Easy-to-use website with keyword search bar
  • Travel articles provide useful information and advice
  • Packing guide helps make planning a trip stress-free
Cons
  • ‘Experiences’ on offer are very expensive

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.
