This is something I get asked a lot. "Should I bother getting some at all?”, “Is it worth it?” and “What if I don’t use it?”. The short answer is that you really do need travel insurance. Some countries actually insist you show that you have it before they give you your tourist visa so better safe than sorry....
Aside from your passport, this is definitely one of the most important things you have on your person when you’re on the road. Without it, you are pretty immobilised and having the right cards in your possession can make your travel a whole lot easier. Handy Hint: Go for an international bank that will have ATM’s in several locations around...
It’s most definitely not a big secret to anyone that flights are often times the biggest chunk of your travel budget and it is no wonder that the aeronautical industry is so competitive as they know people shop around. Most of us aren’t in the luxury travel market and will always opt for the cheapest flight possible. Pinch those...
Planes will get you far but travelling by land will get your budget even further. Not always the case as some budget airlines have made it so cheap it actually makes sense to hit the skies but for the most part, land travel is a great money saver and also hosts a whole array of other travel benefits such...
This is one of the handiest money saving tools in your arsenal and I can’t state that enough.

Ok, so the worst of the worst has happened and you’ve lost your bank card or had it stolen.

You’ve asked house cleaning checked all last locations, banks and police stations. Now your card is gone and you have no...
I really hope you don’t have scabies. They are worse than bedbugs and can be very tricky to get rid of. They itch, burn and can be nearly impossible to see with the naked eye. Often the only way to know is by getting a doctor to look and even then, they don’t always get it right. If you...
Many backpackers who have been travelling for a while have got packing their bag down to a fine art. A fellow I met in Nepal could pack his bag in rapid time in a way that meant he got what he needed with his eyes closed. Useful when there’s no power about. Now, not all of us are as...
Probably one of the most annoying travel pests after mosquitos. Bed Bugs are hard to find because you only ever find the bites long after they’ve gone. The actual pain from the bite doesn’t kick in until the chemicals it leaves to delay the kick in wear off and you start the itch from hell. For a lot of...
Ever heard the statement, “Nothing is free in this world!”? Well next time you hear it being said, kindly tell them to shut up.
