Whilst travelling should be, and is mostly fun there’s a whole heap of stuff you need to do beforehand, such as booking tickets, getting accommodation, travel insurance as well as whole host of other travel considerations.
So here YPT lists some of our top travel resources that we either personally use, or recommend to make your travel adventures slightly easier.
Young Pioneer Tours are the leading budget travel operator to North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Soviet Europe and whole host of other great off the beaten track locations. Check out our site, and let us plan your next adventure.
AirBnB is an absolute game changer offering something to suit all tastes and budgets from private rooms to full on penthouses with pools, that make a great change from dank hotels and soulless hotels. Follow our link for a discount on joining.
Booking.com is without doubt the go to site for booking global hotels, tending to have listings in even obscure locations. Follow our link for a discount on your first booking.
One of the best options for booking hotels in South-East Asia, that also offer points and the ability to pre-pay by credit card.
If you are traveling in China no one even comes near Ctrip it terms of prices and range of hotels (you can also book Chinese train tickets). Have a great app and offer the ability to pay by card.
The original hostel booking site, tried, test and truly get the job done. Beware of imitations.
Whilst there are a lot of flight booking websites most do not even come close to Momondo. What really sets these guys apart is that unlike other sites they are list budget operators.
If you are traveling in China Ctrip not only offer the best choice of hotels, but also flight, and more importantly train booking via credit card.
Not a ticket booking site, but a game changer none the less. You type in two places (such as Rome and Rio) and this site tells you all the different ways (and prices) to get there.
There are a lot of travel insurance companies out there, but alas most of the them don’t cover the places YPT travels to. World Nomads do! And strongly recommend them.
Amazon offer a ton of great travel gear such as multi-plug adapters, and the travelers best friend, the Kindle.
We are periodically looking for full-time, part-time, and seasonal staff. Check out the link for latest postings.
TEFL is one of the best paying and easiest ways to travel the globe, but to do this you need a recognized certificate, something these guys can do provide.
Blogging and hosting
