These are some of the websites that helped me when I travel:

Currency Exchange – Transferwise

I trust using Transferwise to send money home and vice versa. I found that Transferwise offers the best exchange rate at a low fee. Also, I like the fact that they are very transparent about their fees so I know exactly what I will be receiving.

Travel Insurance – World Nomads

I bought travel insurance through world nomads when I was doing my working holiday in Australia. I love how easy it is to access affordable and flexible travel insurance any time online. Even when you are traveling, you can still buy your insurance to start the day you purchased and you have the option to extend if you decide you want to travel longer. I have made claims through the travel insurance with no issue and the staff was pretty helpful.
