Momondo is my go-to for finding budget flights. Kayak works well enough, but I’ve found that Momondo does the best job of trawling the budget airlines for the cheapest rates. When it comes to saving money, Momondo is my secret weapon.
In addition to finding cheap fares, Momondo also has lots of cool tools and graphs to help you know when to buy. A favorite feature of mine is a little smiley face which indicates who ‘pleasant’ a flight will be depending on its price, length, connections, etc.
To be fair, there are times when I only use it as an ‘inspiration generator’. I find a few airlines I never knew existed, then head over to their sites and book directly, or search other engines and aggregators. Do your own research, and get the best deal!
Picking a good travel insurance provider is one of the most important things a traveler does before setting out. For me and many others, World Nomads is the way to go. Low prices, ease of enrollment and claim-making, and coverage for an extensive range of activities make it the most appealing choice for many intrepid adventurers.

For the longest time, I’ve primarily made do with the automatic settings on my camera. I was just never motivated enough to make the effort to really learn how to use the manual settings. But when Jess from Longest Bus Ride contacted me about her new photography course, I jumped at the opportunity. I’m so glad I did! It was short and very manageable even with my work schedule, but I learned so much. In a mere five days, my photo game got a signficant boost, and I’m looking forward to learning more in the future. I really couldn’t recommend the course enough. Click here to find out more about the LBR Travel Photography Club!
