Lonely Planet have been dealing in all things travel since the 1970s, producing  and selling guidebooks, phrasebooks, kids books, travel writing and photograph guides by the millions.

 

Their online shop is a fantastic place to browse their products, set out in an aesthetic and minimalistic style with a whole host of categories to select from. They offer free shipping when you spend over €35 in their shop, while you can easily get in contact with any queries you may have by filling in the simple contact form.

 

One of my favourite inclusions on the Lonely Planet online store is the ability to quickly compare guide types. These give a brief breakdown of what exactly you will get in each of their different categories of books, from city guides to phrasebooks. By giving a brief overview of what is included, it helps you to decide which product will best suit your preferences before rushing into buying it.

 

A sector of the website that I like in particular is the ‘Pocket Guides’ section, featuring more concise guidebooks containing pull-out maps. There is an option to ‘Look Inside’ giving you a short preview of what to expect, and you can choose between buying the print copy, eBook or both. You can also easily ‘Share’ the product via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or email, useful, for example if you want to recommend it as a gift idea.

 

An obvious downside is that the website only deals in books and there are no external links to suggested products to buy elsewhere. Furthermore, there is no option to add products to favourites in order to view later, meaning you will have to go back and search for the product from the start if you decide to buy it at a later date.

Pros
  • Free shipping after spending €35 and contact form to easily ask questions
  • Quickly compare guide types to find out exactly what is included in each
  • Option to view previews and share products
Cons
  • Only offer books with no external links to recommended products
  • No option to save products for later

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.
