Travelex is a comprehensive currency converter whose instant calculator makes for a very quick conversion across nearly 50 currencies. The website also displays results against other popular currencies, including Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars and Euros, meaning you can easily see what the current exchange rates are.

 

The difficulty is in changing both currencies, as the website will only display exchange rates against one currency depending on where you’re looking from. For example, if you are looking from the US, you can only compare currencies in relation to US dollars, which limits it to an extent.

 

The ‘Historical rates’ tab allows you to view the exchange rate between two currencies in the last month, last three months, last six months and last year with an easy to read graph so you can see if it’s a good time to buy. There is also an option to buy the currency via the website with the simple click of the ‘Order Now’ button.

 

However, my favourite feature is the section under the currency converter that calculates how much money you will need to convert based on your travel itinerary. It takes the average costs of the all-important travel essentials and combines them with the live exchange rates to help you work out a budget for your travels. I found this to be extremely useful when it came to exchanging money as it gave a good indication of how expensive things would be before setting off.

 

You can also sign up for free email updates on exchange rates that you are interested in. If you’re planning on going abroad but want to make sure you get the best rate, Travelex will send you an email when it’s a good time to buy so you get the best value for money. This is a great feature and can mean big savings on your currency conversion costs.

  • Historical rates tab shows exchange rate between two currencies up to last 12 months
  • Budget calculator to help you plan for next trip
  • Email notifications on exchange rates you’re interested in
Cons

  • Can only change one currency at a time

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.
