About This Episode:
I by no means consider myself a digital nomad, we have an office and a great staff, but I believe that traveling increases your worldview and is incredible for personal development.
I've learned a few things:
- Look on Groupon or Living Social (They're the same company now, pick one)
- Get an airline miles credit card; Capital One Venture Card is pretty good from what I've heard
- Check out Travel Zoo; only sign up for their top 20 email list otherwise you'll get spammed
- Book closer to travel to get better rates
- Use sites like Orbitz for last-minute deals, but do your first search in an incognito window because they'll cookie you and the price will go up
- Download Google maps for the cities you're going to on WiFi; they'll work on airplane mode (including the GPS, which is EPIC).
- Use public transportation (Trains ROCK), many cities sell a 48 hour or 7-day pass for unlimited public transportation
- Avoid taxis, they can be expensive or untrustworthy, use Uber where available.
- Eat off the beaten path, it won't be what the people really eat and will be 5x as expensive; stay in residential areas.
- If you are confused and need help, walk into the largest name brand hotel, collect yourself, act like you're staying there and ask for help.
- Travel in the offseason; it's cheaper
- Visit sites on a weekday
I've been a bunch of places and none of them hit my wallet hard...
- Cliffs of Moher (Galway)
- St. Lucia
