Travel Tips and Resources

We’ve created this page to share the brilliant stuff we’ve found along the way, including resources we use on a daily basis. We hope you might find something of help here.

Travel Resources We Use Daily

Our number one go to house and pet sitting site. We’ve been members since we started. By far the largest selection of house and pet sits around the world! Build up reviews every time you sit for someone, making it easier to get selected for the best sits.

We’ve been usingĀ  the Revolut card from the very start of our travels. Its a load up as you go visa card with a simple app enabling you to hold a wide variety of different currencies. Exchange money instantly on the go at brilliant rates. Free to use too!

We’ve found this a great company for our travel insurance needs. There are plenty out there, but unfortunately at our age there’s the need to list a pre-existing condition and the quotes have still been reasonable. Flexible policies have been useful for us.

Our number one go to accommodation booking portal. By far the largest selection of low cost rooms but the biggest advantage is free cancellation. Book early on free cancellation to get the best deals and if your plans change cancel at no cost. Win Win!

We use this price comparison site to search for most of our flights. From experience we’ve found that they sometimes come up with some fantastic prices for flights, give the option to multi search airlines if you have two or three stops and you can also set deals alert.

We’ve had some real bargain rental cars using this comparison site, especially in the USA where we got fully comp deals at such great prices and free cancellation too. They sometimes have some great reductions as well making it our personal favourite.

Books that have given us some ideas for when we settle down!
