Resources

Over the years we’ve tried a lot of different services and products, some have been replaced with newer better models or systems, and others have remained consistently good throughout.

These are the products and services we use time and time again when travelling, they have been put through their paces, so we’re more than happy to recommend them to you.

FLIGHTS

Skyscanner pulls the cheapest flights on the web, and allows you to search for specific dates or month-long ranges so you can find the best deal!

Going, formerly Scott’s Cheap Flight Club is a travel membership that alerts you to crazy flight deals to help you go on that dream vacation for less.

Before we select our seats on a flight, we always check out SeatGuru as this free website has insider tips on the best place to sit on any plane.

ACCOMMODATION

Airbnb is the largest vacation rental website and covers 191 countries. Whether you’re looking for a couch to crash on or a castle to stay in, Airbnb has you covered.

I book 99% of all our hotel stays around the world using Booking. The company has over 2 million+ properties in 220+ countries and often has the best prices.

Vrbo focuses on ‘entire property’ vacation rentals around the world. If you’re looking for extra space & ammenities then this is a great choice.

I use Expedia for booking a DIY package holiday that includes flights and accommodation as well as car hire and attractions. There are often great discounts for multiple trip components.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is something I never compromise on.

Sure, it’s annoying spending money on something that isn’t really travelling.

However, I speak from experience when I say you’re going to be incredibly grateful that you paid up for great travel insurance when you need it.

TOURS & ACTIVITIES

I book the majority of our tours through Get Your Guide. They have a wide variety of different tours available around the world at a really great price.

Intrepid Travel is a small group adventure travel company. The company offers more than 1,100 escorted tours worldwide with average groups of 10.

For those outside the UK I reccomend purchasing theme park tickets from Undercover Tourist as they always have the best prices.

For UK residents I reccomend purchasing theme park tickets from AttractionTix. They have incredible prices and amazing customer service.
