Planning your own trip is not an easy task.

Below is a small sampling of useful articles to help make travel easier for you.

Divergent Travelers Resources

Websites We Use

Travel Planning

Lonely Planet Forum

A really great place to get firsthand information from other travelers.


Get the facts and learn about the destinations you are wanting to visit.

Exchange Rates

You should always check currency conversion rates when you arrive in a new country. BEFORE you exchange any money!


We book most of our hotels through this site. It’s a great resource of hotels and offers great deals.


We love renting apartments with AirBNB to have more relaxed stays. If you’re not on AirBNB already, the link above will give you a $35 credit.


This might seem odd, but we use TripAdvisor to read hotel reviews and on occasion book rooms too.

Hostel World

Sometimes, even we stay in hostels. You can find great private rooms in hostels if you know where to look or you can find good deals on dorm rooms.



Most of our flights are booked through Skyscanner. They show all airlines, even the budget ones.


Occasionally you can also find good deals here. Worth a look.

Travel Insurance

World Nomads

One of the best travel insurance companies out there. They offer coverage for adventures activities and electronics too.


Basic travel insurance coverage if you spend more time in the city.
