Check the following travel sites for reliable and up-to-date information.


1.      XE.com

Check XE.com for reliable, mid-market exchange rates. Along with an easy-to-read grid of conversion rates on the homepage and a host of other tools, this site offers calculators for travel expenses, credit-card charges and, obviously, currency conversions.

2.      Eurail

Trains are often the fastest and cheapest way to travel within and between European countries. Though a favorite American Web site for checking timetables and booking tickets on European train lines is RailEurope. But you might be able to catch better deals directly from European railways’ sites, if you don’t get lost in translation.

3.      FlightStats.com

FlightStats.com can help you plan a smooth trip by advising you on the best time of day to fly from a specific airport and which terminals to avoid for connecting flights. You can also view live updates of flight delays, and sign up for free e-mail and phone alerts.

4.      WebFlyer.com

At WebFlyer.com, you can see how your miles convert between programs, learn about changes to your frequent-flier program and discover how to maximize the value of your mileage awards when you redeem them for merchandise or services

5.      ePassportPhoto.com

To get a professional passport photo you’ll pay about $15, which can add up for a family. Instead, take your photo with your own digital camera, then upload it to ePassportPhoto.com, which will help you size it properly before printing on your home printer. The best part: You can redo your picture as many times as you like.

Bonus mention:

InsureMyTrip.com

You never know when an emergency situation will spoil your travel plans. Buying travel insurance from agencies and travel providers, such as cruise lines, is usually a crummy deal because of price markups and restrictions on filing claims. At InsureMyTrip.com, you can compare plans and prices from multiple insurance providers with just one search and narrow your search results by specifying the kind of coverage you need.
