I would like to share with you some of my favorite services and tools that I use all the time when preparing our trips. I will be also adding here some travel deals every now and then, so that you could benefit from them.
|My favourite service for booking hotels and all kind of holiday accommodation. I always try to use other websites, but end up on Booking.com anyway. So, it's my go-to website when I need to book holiday accommodation. The prices here are normally much better than on other websites.
|Get up to $30 off your first trip with my link. Airbnb.com is our favourite platform for renting apartments all over the world. Check out my detailed guide on how to rent a holiday apartment through Airbnb and not get disappointed.
|I like using Agoda.com when I need to find accommodation in Asia. Normally they have the same hotels, hostels, villas as Booking.com does, but sometimes you can find villas or homes that are not featured on Booking.com and prices can be a bit different.
I use Momondo.com to find cheap flights to any destination. I really like the interface and the filters that allow choosing the best option. Normally this website gives you the cheapest price available, very often better than you can find on Expedia or Kayak.
|Skyscanner.net is another great tool that you can use to find the best flights available. I normally search for tickets on Momondo and then go to Skyscanner and compare the prices and the flights, since sometimes the information and the flights' cost differs. Also, Skyscanner has an option to choose a whole month and make a destination "anywhere". Like that you can find the cheapest flight to the cheapest destination throughout the month that you are after. It's a cool tool for when you want to go somewhere cheap, but you don't know when or where.
|HolidayPirates.com is one of my favourite platforms when it comes to searching for incredible travel deals. What you need here is being flexible. Sometimes you can find offers that allow you to plan ahead and book a trip in a few months, but some offers require to leave for holidays right away. You'll find here flights and accommodation to various destinations at ridiculously cheap prices!
Travel and Health Insurance
|Buying travel and health insurance is very much a necessary thing when doing any kind of traveling, especially long trips where anything can happen. Don't play the hero and forego insurance, chances are you'll regret it later. World Nomads Travel Insurance is a favorite with digital nomads, although we usually find better deals with local companies in Spain. You need to do some comparisons, but World Nomads is the only travel insurance service we found specially catered for long term travelers and digital nomads.
