Travel Basics and Tools
This chapter describes websites that you may need to help you to research your trip. As well as the web address, I have also given a brief description of the functions of the website. I have grouped the websites according to their type or use.
This section includes how to find the answers to questions such as;
- Time Difference
- Weights and Measures
- Emergency Money
- Electricity and Telephone Connections
- Travel Gear
o Travel Tips
o Theme Parks
You may find some of these links on travel websites on the page/menu option called ‘Travel Tools’. Others may be websites in their own right.
I recommend that you set up a ‘Travel Basics and Tools’ folder in your browser’s ‘Favourites’ option to ensure that these sites are always close to hand.
