Since its founding in 2012, MovingWorlds has helped thousands of young people find skill-based volunteer opportunities around the world. It connects travelers to start-ups, nonprofits, and other social impact organisations that provide a free place to stay in exchange for definable skills, such as marketing, communications, engineering, design, photography, architecture, financing, accounting and consulting. There is no limit to how long or short you must stay, making it a very flexible service in comparison to those that demand a minimum period.

 

A feature of MovingWorlds that I think is brilliant is the online training provided by the company, with great customer support offered throughout. Once you have joined the programme and found a match for your skills, you will receive access to the MovingWorlds Global Leadership Guidebook, as well as invitations to monthly ‘webinars’ with industry leaders. This helps hone your skills and learn something new, that can then be taken into the work sphere once you are back home.

 

Another great feature is the MovingWorlds online community forum. Forums have long been resource places to gain insight, ask questions and contribute to ideas, and the MovingWorlds forum does just that. After signing up, you get full access to the forum, allowing you to develop cross cultural leadership skills, gain exposure to different sectors and explore current trends and challenges in the social impact space around the world. Their blog is also a useful addition to the platform, containing a whole host of articles on various topics, such as the benefits of volunteering overseas and the different ways in which volunteering has helped other people develop.

 

A drawback that I encountered when looking through the platform was the price of the subscription. The membership fees range from $250 to $4,250, and do not include the cost of getting to the destination. This makes the service an expensive option for those travelling on a budget, particularly in comparison to sites like Workaway, which charge just $35 for a 2-year membership. As the programme is only volunteering with the accommodation provided, it can prove to be an expensive exchange, and will not be the first choice for travellers on a shoestring budget.

Pros
  • No time limit for length of stay
  • Online training in specific skills
  • Access to online community forum and blog
Cons
  • Expensive service for those travelling on a budget

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.
