    Update 08/12/2016 - Official travel alerts and warnings for travelers

    Friday, 08/12/2016, 07:23 PM, By: travelario-Staff

    Update 08/12/2016 - Official travel alerts and warnings for travelersDue to an increasing number of unforeseen and potentially dangerous events worldwide (such as wild fires, demonstrations, natural disasters) travelers are required to stay up to date with what's going on in their destination. Government agencies such as the Auswärtiges Amt in Germany provide their citizens with important information about the current situation. To make sure that travelers using travelario will not miss this information, we now integrate these warnings right into the guides of the affected cities, regions or countries (only active if you select "German" as your language, e.g. for Thailand today). We will add government agencies for additional countries in the future.

    UPDATE: This service has been expanded with travel warnings and alerts of the US Department of State (Travel.State.Gov) which will be shown if you select "English" as your language.

    Update 08/12/2016 - Guides for every map with real-time information

    Friday, 08/12/2016, 06:33 PM, By: travelario-Staff

    Update 08/12/2016 - Guides for every map with real-time informationOver the last few weeks we've gradually added new functionality for what is going to become the guide section of travelario. Every map will have its own guide which will provide a different view on the locations included in the map as well as real-time information about this city or country. For instance the guide for Bangkok, Thailand now includes the current local time, currency rates and weather with more information available when you click/hover over the icons. Furthermore you can find the current bestsellers for travel guides on Amazon.com or Amazon.de and links to important resources such as the official website for the specific city, region or country.

    We have also added a comment system provided by Disqus on every page. If have have suggestions or comments, feel free to add them there. We will continue to add more and more information in these guides on our journey to provide both travelers and locals with the best tools possible for trip planning and orientation when already there.
