An obvious Luxury Travel Hack, but one, people don’t utilise. If you have flexibility use it. Better yet couple it with other Luxury Travel Hacking skills such as utilising splitting costs or different types of travel to really give you bang for your buck.
These are our current tips for utilising flexibility to get more bang for our buck:
- Check different dates
- Check different locations
- Check different airports and flights
- Utilising stopovers & layovers
- Utilising carry on luggage only
Spend some time checking out all of these options above to minimise costs. This could simply be looking at slightly different dates or locations. Otherwise if you love hunting for a deal check out different airport and flight options for departure or arrival. An example of this is check all airports in New York to see if there are cheaper options. You will be amazed how much you can save.
Also, incorporating a layover or stopover into your flexible travel is another great way of experiencing more. We utilise the layover with every opportunity we get.
If you are interested in layovers the posts below are super helpful:
Another great way to save some extra money to put towards more luxurious travel is by flying with carry on luggage, also known as hand or cabin luggage, only. You can certainly be strategic and flexible with your packing to save you money.
Most of us avid travellers are usually trying to save a few dollars where ever we can. While doing so can save a ton of cash, especially when following our many luxury travel hacks, it sometimes also has its interesting perks, such as long layover flights.
One of the things that we always include in our packing list is a good and reliable towel. Whether we’re going on a long trip or just a weekend getaway, we make sure that we have one in our bags, you know, just in case. One of our most trusted travel towels are the Tesalate beach towels, from our home country Australia.
In recent years, China has begun loosening its restrictive visa restrictions. Now, travellers can finally have a chance to take a quick peek inside on a layover in Shanghai.
You have your passport, you have your flight tickets, you have your plan, and you are excited. However, in front of you is 20 hours of travel with a 7+ hour layover….YIPPEE! The layover, if you are unsure, is the time spent between connecting flights while travelling across the globe.
