Resources

Every journey starts with a search. And the web is at your finger tips!

When searching for a flight, accomodation, car rental I only use services online because they are easier to use and I can always look at several options on my own or with travel companions. Below you’ll find the ones I use more frequently and they work pretty well.

Apart from travels, all the equipment I usually look for and need for the orienteering events themselves I also serch and buy it only, mostly. Under the travel related links, there are a few I use for all the orienteering and race related gear.


TRAVEL GUIDES

Whenever you need a travel guide for your next destination or a good travel book to read on those long airplane or train rides, or even not sure where to go next and in search of ideas for adventures to come, Lonely Planet is the place to go! There is even an app with guides, tips and advice. Check it out!


FLIGHTS

Momondo is usually my first step to my next journey. Here you can find the best flights according to your need and you can decide if you want the cheapest, the fastest or something in between. From there you can jump to the travel website of your choice and make your purchase.


ACCOMMODATION

Hotels.com is the platform I use the most to take care of accommodation for my travels. It’s very easy to use and most properties have options like pre-paying or only at the hotel, or free cancelation that can be done till a few days before the trip. It also has a Rewards program that offers a night stay that can be used anywhere for every 10 nights paid (from different stays), which is great.


CAR RENTAL

When it comes to finding the best car rental deal for your next travel, this is for me the best option to look for it! Auto Europe has long-standing relationships with the industry’s top suppliers like Hertz, Avis, National, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise and Europcar that allows them to offer the best rates to travelers at over 20,000 pickup locations in 180 countries worldwide. And you can save up to 30% too!


TRAVEL INSURANCE

World Nomads is an amazing insurance company designed by travelers for travelers. Besides their great travel insurance they also have insurance for adventure activities! Check out the link and you’ll find that among these there is one you may be familiar with: Orienteering! WOW! So besides insuring your travel with lots of different coverage options you can also insure your participation in an Orienteering event anywhere in the world!
