Travel Resources

A lot of people ask me how can I afford to travel so much. A  part of the answer lies in the choices I make when it comes to flights, accommodation, tours, etc. With so many options on the market, it’s very easy to get lost and spend hours of searching online before coming across a good deal but don’t worry; I got you covered. In this section, I’m sharing some of the companies that helped me save hundreds of dollars while traveling.

DISCLAIMER: Yes, some of the links below are affiliate links but NO, I don’t earn any money on your expense. On the contrary, most of these affiliate links offer discounted prices and you’ll be getting a discount every time you book something using these links.

Skyscanner searches a lot of different websites, including budget airline websites that most sites miss. It’s a great site to compare prices before booking a flight.

Momondo browses small websites no one else does. That’s why they have the best deals (most of the time). Whenever I book a new flight, this is my first choice.

Honestly, Cheapoair isn’t as good as Skyscanner and Momondo but their affiliate program I’m a part of offers amazing discount to anyone booking through their affiliates.

Which budget

When you’re on a strict budget, Which Budget gives you a quick overview of the cheapest flights from a destination, regardless of dates. It’s a great option if you have an open schedule.

Looking for the cheapest route with difficult flight combinations? Flystein uses some of their secret sauce combined with miles and points to get you the cheapest deal possible.

student universe

Student Universe is one of the best travel booking sites for students and young people. If you’re a student or a youngster, you can get hefty discounts on flights, hotels, tours, and much more.

Booking.com logo

Booking.com probably doesn’t need any additional introduction. However, what you might not know is that by using the link below, you’re getting 10% off on all bookings.

agoda logo

Even though available worldwide, Agoda is my go-to choice when traveling around Asia. Most hotels are a part of their network and from my experience, they have the best deals in the region.

Hotels might not always have the cheapest price but they give 10% back in the form of cashback you can use to book hotels; the best loyalty program for accommodation I came across.

The prices Choice Hotels can offer you are nowhere near as cheap as other websites on this list but if you’re looking for luxury accommodation on a budget, you can’t get any closer than this!

Room Mate Hotels is based on a simple philosophy that the best way to travel is by visiting friends in each city. Every hotel on their list is more than a hotel and has the characteristics of a true host.

trainline

When traveling in Europe, train is the way to go. If you’re wondering where to find good deals for rail lines around Europe, this is the right place for you!

Auto Europe is one of the largest car rental companies with 20,000 car rental locations in 180 countries and prices that are hard to beat even by local companies! The best part: you can compare different rentals around the web before booking!

sta travel logo

STA Travel claims to be the world’s largest travel company for students and young people and having used their services personally, I can vouch for them. They offer cheap flights for students but also a lot of local transportation and tours options.

sixt logo

Even though not as widely available as Auto Europe, in the countries in which it is available, it offers close and sometimes even better fares. Additionally, with the link below, you can get up to 10% off (worldwide) on your next rental. 

goasia

No one can compare to 12Go Asia when it comes to bus/train travel in Southeast and East Asia. 12Go Asia is a must for all budget travelers in the region; it’s the cheapest and one of the most reliable transportation booking websites in Asia.

It probably doesn’t matter much whether I vouch for World Nomads or not because brands like Lonely Planet and National Geographic already did that. I can only add that they have great customer service, are available worldwide and have very competitive prices.

I love this Aardvark’s marketplace because it’s a platform that collects travel insurance offers from different brands worldwide and compares them for you, making your choice a lot easier. Just fill out an application with your requirements and see all available offers.

Seven Corners Travel Insurance AardvarkCompare

My second go-to choice when it comes to travel insurance is Seven Corners. Many people already know that Seven Corners has great policies and covers all types of insurance for all types of travelers and just like many other travel bloggers out there, I can vouch for them.
