Worldpackers is skills exchange platform that connects a community of thousands of travelers and hosts worldwide. Users can choose between three different types of programme: ‘Work Exchange’, which entails working a few hours a day in return for accommodation, ‘Social Impact’, where travellers volunteer in NGOs, schools and social projects, or ‘Eco Program’, that entails learning in eco-villages, farms and permaculture projects.

 

Searching for hosts is phenomenally easy, with a search bar and a range of filters available to help you quickly narrow down results to match your preferences. You can choose from a wide selection of skills, from web development to teaching languages to looking after children, while you can also select the specific style of travel you’re after, be it contact with nature, metropolis or party atmosphere. I particularly like the star rating attached to each hosts’ profile based on verified user reviews. This helps to give a good indication of what it’s like living and working with the host from people who have already experienced it.

 

Another facet of the website that I continually resort to is the ‘Content from the Community’ section, which features a variety of different articles containing tips, guides and inspiration offered by other worldpackers. Posts include ‘How to work with social media while abroad’, ‘Dos and Don’ts of solo travelling as a girl’, and ‘The best travel apps that will help you save time and money in Europe’.

 

An obvious drawback to Worldpackers is the cost. Whereas similar websites, such as Workaway.info charge a yearly membership, Worldpackers charges $50 USD per trip confirmation, meaning if you plan on making multiple trips in a year it can get quite expensive. Although there is an opportunity to travel for free by getting endorsements from friends, without this it can be quite pricey.

Pros
  • Range of filters to help narrow down search
  • Star rating gives good idea of what to expect from each host
  • Travel articles provide tips, advice and inspiration
  • 24/7 support and personal travel experts available before, during and after trip
  • Mobile application available to download for free
Cons
  • More expensive than alternatives, such as Workaway.info

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.
