r/Shoestring is a subreddit that is perfect for travellers looking for ideas and tips on how to get around on a budget. With a following of more than 640,000 subscribers, it has become one of the best resources around for the frugal travellers amongst us, where people can ask questions, post photos and let others know their thoughts on how to travel on a shoestring.

 

One of my favourite parts of r/Shoestring is the first hand accounts of trips abroad, usually accompanied by a series of photos taken whilst there. These often provide more useful and up-to-date information than you’d find in a guidebook, particularly if searching for a cheap getaway.

 

Also, unlike a guidebook, if you have a question then you can simply ask on the page. Although everyday hundreds of people share their alternatives to pricey destinations and where to find the best deals, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can post a question and you can be sure that someone will be on hand to answer it. This is perfect for planning a trip since you can take the advice of someone who has been there to help budget for when you arrive.

 

One of the downsides that I encountered when using r/Shoestring was that it lacks any external content in the top menu, such as suggestions for the best places to book flights, reserve a room, book a train or rent a car. A few links to their recommended websites would make the subreddit even more comprehensive, as there is no really easy way to find out the information without posing the question yourself or scrolling through to see if someone has already posted about it.

Pros
  • First hand accounts give accurate and up-to-date information on a range of different locations
  • Ask questions to help plan for a trip away
Cons
  • No links to recommended websites
  • Sometimes difficult to find the information you’re looking for

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.
