Do you have any online travel tools you'd like to share that have helped you in planning for your trips, or online tools you used during your trips?

Here are a few that I'm sure most of you have already heard of these:

Universal Packing List

Seat Guru

Time Zone, International Dialing Codes, Distance Calculator etc.

If I come across any others, I'll post it here.

World Weather

Currency Converter

World Electricity

Measurement converter (i.e. inches to centimeters, liters to gallons etc.)

International Dialing Codes - I actually found a better site than this for Dialing codes, but I didn't bookmark it and have yet to locate it again Frown

Map Tool - Great for making a little online map of places you've been, whether it's a map of all the cities you've visited or a local map with you fav coffee shops in your town. They can be shared too!


If we get some more responses, any way to make this a best of the boards thread, mods??

Alas, your link to Universal Packing List is dead.

Is this what you're thinking of? Universal Packing List
