FINDING FLIGHTS

GOOGLE FLIGHTS

Google Flights is the new standard in finding airfare. Their calendar view makes it easy to pick the date with the best price, and they’re always up to date with deals and promotions from different airlines

Use Momondo to find out when the best time to fly is. They offer a matrix that highlights an entire month, meaning you can compare prices and, if you’re flexible with dates, find the lowest price possible.

While most online tools will only show itineraries where all flights are on the same carrier or at least partner airlines, Kiwi doesn’t limit its search in that way.

An Onward Ticket is a flight reservation made by a real travel agency that can be helpful for visa applications or if you want to enter a country without purchasing a return flight.

ACCOMMODATION

As a full-time traveller or nomad, renting a furnished apartment is a must and Airbnb is the most comprehensive listing and booking site for short to medium term apartment rentals in the world.

If you are travelling in South-East Asia, we have found Agoda to be most useful. They have established direct relationships for more hotels, hostels and guest houses than any other booking site in this part of the world and is by far our most used option when travelling in Asia.

If you are booking more traditional accommodations, i.e. hotels, hostels or holiday apartments, Booking.com should be your first stop. We use them all the time for ‘home-stay’ options in South East Asia as they have by far the best inventory worldwide, and hotels listed on the site are not allowed to sell rooms at a lower price elsewhere.

Hostelworld is the number one resource for researching and booking hostels all over the world. They have a database of seemingly every hostel in existence with accurate ratings and reviews from real users, with a very easy booking system to boot.

They compare the prices of all major (and not so major) booking sites and in the past, we've saved up to 30% by doing a quick search on Trivago. It primarily features hotels, but there are also some hostels and similar listed.

FINANCE

TransferWise is the BEST way to transfer money overseas and between currencies. The new Border-less Account is a game-changer - one account to send money, receive money, and spend around the world up to 8x cheaper than banks.

With free inter-currency transfers for up to £5000 per month and a free debit card for spending and cash withdrawals (first £200 per month fee free) in over 150 currencies, Revolut could potentially save you a fortune in fees while travelling.

Apart from the free basic account which offers great benefits such as free ATM withdrawals in the EU, zero-fee swiping worldwide and TransferWise integration, the paid N26 plan offers free worldwide ATM withdrawal as well as travel insurance. This might just be the ultimate account for travellers.

WorldNomads provides cover for what’s important for travellers from over 150 countries. Trusted reliable underwriters - value for money with the cover you need. They have been our 1st choice for 2 years running.

Excellent value travel / medical insurance for long-term travellers and nomads. Specifically being able to get cover on a month to month basis makes SafetyWing well worth considering.
