About

BorderHelper prepares you for your next border crossing, with thousands of reviews from travelers just like you. The idea for the site started in 2009 when I [rode a motorcycle from the USA to Argentina]. I searched all over internet (blogs, forums, info sites) for information on the next border I faced. Lots of information was availble but finding it was a real struggle.

BorderHelper was born in 2013 when I decided it was time to give back to the traveling community and build the site I wish I had before I went traveling. Like my how-to-guide for [Motorcycling in Mexico], I wanted to build a resource that continues the spirit of travelers helping travelers.

So please, poke around, read reviews and leave comments about your own experiences crossing borders.

If you've found these peer reviews of border crossings useful, and want to help out the community in return, tell other travelers about this site. Link to it on your website or blog, mention it on Facebook or Twitter, and recommend this site whenever someone you know needs to cross a border. Thank you for your support!
