Travel Resources

After years of travel I’ve tried out many websites, gear and resources. I’ve spent hours doing research and have come up with some reliable sources that I’m listing under the topics below.

Finding Cheap Flights


A great thing about Skyscanner is that it has an “everywhere” destination option so you can see where you can fly cheap. Another plus is you can choose an entire country.


I’ve used Kayak numerous times and love the ease of using their search options. The only downside is that they’ve recently deleted several budget airlines from the search engine but its still a good site to find a bargain.


This is a good backup site to Skyscanner however, Momondo will occasionally link you to deals that don’t exist. Be sure to read all the fine print!


This is a great site which tells you which airlines fly between destinations.

The Points Guy

Great site for navigating the world of points and miles to obtain free travel. Also the Points Guy tends to report the best deals before anyone else.
