Quite not like that, but if you’re interested in getting cold, hard cash, and avoiding ATM withdrawal fees, this might be the ticket.
Besides, we are secure enough to admit when we don’t have an original idea.
Real talk, how much did you spend on hotels and hostels, the Michelin prixe fix lunch, the booze, and flying over the Nazca lines? How much was incurred in foreign transaction fees? (I mean, if you’re that fastidious about the money tracking, by all means.)
There are a couple of things that we want to do differently, though. We want this to include travelers of all genders and walks of life, so even if there’s a little one in tow, we want to hear about this. Plus, the truth is, that in this day and age, many people are using points to pay for a substantial amount of things.
Travel editors also don’t travel like normal people.2 In our gilded life, tourism representatives wine and dine us, and we stand at the freakin’ center of Mexico, in the crypt that houses all the archbishops (seriously).
So we’re relying on you to tell us! Aside from blogging about our occasional, once-a-year vacation where we’re forced to pay for things. 😅3
It’s not just for airfare: thebestvpn recently took an in-depth look about how much more travelers can expect to save on car rentals and hotels by using a VPN.
Actually it can. Not in every situation, but for some circumstances, if the trip is short enough and you’re a great packer, basic economy can be a chance to save some money.
Sometimes business class plane tickets are cheaper than economy class tickets, and sometimes weekly car rentals are cheaper than renting it for less the week.
I believe in defensive traveling. This means things like scanning passports and visas into Dropbox and stashing hidden 50-dollar bills into inconspicuous keychains.
One Mile at a Time recently clued us into a huge discount: Senior citizens over the age of 62 are entitled to a $10 lifetime pass.

This is an easy one to write and that’s because long before KAYAK approached me about writing this post, KAYAK Explore was already a favorite tool in my repertoire, even if anyone barely knew about it.
Asking is the quickest way to get a discount but it’s also the quickest possible way to piss off an Airbnb host.
