Travellerspoint: a resource site made especially for travelers

    About Travellerspoint


    Travellerspoint was started by brothers Peter and Samuel Daams way back in 2002 to create an international meeting point for travelers across the globe. 

    As such, Travellerspoint’s objective is “to enrich the traveling experience by offering numerous services, content, and products that have significant perceived and added value for travelers worldwide.”

    Upon opening Travellerspoint’s homepage, you will be greeted by a friendly and easy-to-navigate layout. Accessing the site is a breeze because it loads fast and smooth. 

    Once inside the Travellerspoint website, you have the option to create an account or not but I do suggest creating an account for you to fully enjoy all the features of this site.

    Main tabs


    The main navigation menu is composed of the following tabs: Travel Forums, Book Accommodation, Create a Travel Map, Plan a Trip, and Start a Blog. Clicking on each tab will take you to specific pages containing rich information and relevant details.

    Travel Map


    Let me begin by discussing one of the more interesting, and probably most functional, features of Travellerspoint, which is the Free Travel Map. This tool provides users a fun, free, fast, and simple way to visualize their trips.

    Travellerspoint’s free travel map is a great feature to help travelers plan their upcoming trips as well as chart their past adventures. 

    With this map, you can add notes, photos, resources from other websites, and even your blog entries to build a detailed narrative of your journeys. Conversely, you can embed this map into your own blog or share it as an infographic.

    Travel Forums


    Travel Forums is the community page of Travellerspoint, a venue for friendly discussions about anything related to travel. 

    This is the place where you can post your questions and get answers straight from expert travelers themselves. I checked several topics randomly to see how the discussions go and I was happy to note that the exchanges are pleasant and indeed helpful.

    Accommodation booking


    Furthermore, if you are looking for hotels, just click on Travellerspoint’s Book Accommodation Tab where you will be taken to a page where you can search for accommodation deals based on popular cities or continents. It even lets you search for hotels per country.

    When you click on, say, a city or country, you will be taken to a page containing a list of the available hotels in that particular area as well as a view of the hotels on a map to give you a good perspective of the property that you are interested to book.

    Travel blog


    Travelers who are looking to start a blog may also do so at Travellerspoint. It’s free to use; just choose a username and a theme, and you are all set. 

    Once you have signed up, you may access your blog by typing yourusername.travellerspoint.com in your browser URL address bar. Publishing is also easy because the interface is simple and very similar to other popular blogging platforms such as blogspot.com and wordpress.com.

    Lastly, Travellerspoint also allows users to submit their travel photos. Those who have submitted good quality photos have the chance to be featured in Travellerspoint’s homepage.

    Epilogue


    All in all, Travellerspoint is a well put together travel resource site. It was founded by travelers for travelers so it contains only practical information as well as useful tools for organizing and sharing one’s trips.

    As a social networking site, Travellerspoint is a great portal for connecting with individuals who share the same interests as you. 

    Unlike other social networking sites, what I like about Travellerspoint is that it has no clutter or deluge of unnecessary information. What you get is a clean interface and a highly active community of global travelers.

    2. This seems like such a good resource! I've never heard of it before. I love the driving tours. My husband and I were just trying to plan a roadtrip to New England and we were using GoogleMaps and it definitely wasn't easy. We'll try again with Travellerspoint. Thanks for the recommendation!

    3. What a wonderful resource for travellers! I am wondering if the map feature you described is a map of other people's travels, or can you make a map like that for yourself? If so, that is an amazing treasure to find!
