7 Travel Hacks To Help You Save Money

Do you ever find yourself scrolling through beautiful destinations, inspiring photography in places you know would be a life changing adventure? As a person who loves the excitement of new adventures, it can get expensive, but it doesn’t always have to be. Think about your destination, if you’re going to Paris in mid-summer you’re bound to spend a lot of money.

I often get asked how I am able to pull my trips together financially. Today, I’m sharing some hacks that I do to get to my next destination! Here are some of the few tricks I’ve learned to save money on travel.

1. Finding Deals on Flights

When it comes to flights I’ve never spent more than $900 on a ticket, even on the most exotic destinations!

  • Flights are usually at their lowest on a Monday or Tuesday afternoon. Business travelers will usually book most of their flights in the morning hours when prices are higher. Afternoon is usually your best bet.
  • Use flight apps and websites flight alerts. These app will send you a notification when prices are increasing or decreasing.
  • Check prices on less popular flight sites that monitor flight costs. Always read change/cancellation fees before you book.
  • Don’t be afraid of multi city. Connecting flights are known to finding cheaper tickets. I don’t always follow this method because I like to get to my destination’s quicker but it does work!
  • Buying tickets way in advance.

2. Joining a Tour

Tours are a great way to save money on travel. In 2017, I took my first solo trip to Peru & Machu Picchu with a tour. Tours offer packages with some meals included, hotel, transportation, entrance to places. You tend to save a lot more this way. I remember not using a lot of cash in Peru unless I bought a snack or a souvenir because most of my excursions were included. Even where I bought my souvenir’s I was advised by my awesome tour guide where to buy so I can get the best bargain. You also get to see a lot more then if you were on your own. On tours you meet a lot of other like minded travelers, some also traveling solo. I highly recommend tours for female solo travel.

3. Choose Affordable Accommodation

If hotels are too much for your budget, I recommended using Airbnb. It is an online platform that lets you rent out homes, apartments, or rooms from local people. It can often be less expensive than a hotel.

Other affordable accommodations are hostels. I know what you’re thinking! Hostels aren’t for everyone. I love to try new things when traveling and did stay at hostels with a few friends one summer traveling across Europe. I had a great experience and even made friends along the way.

Be sure toalways read your reviews! My cousin who used to live in Ireland recommended a hostel in Dublin to me. It was right on top of Temple Bar, one of the most popular bars in Dublin. Let’s just say I was not happy with him and his recommendation once I got there. But, I also never did my own research!

TIP: Breakfast in hotels. Unless my breakfast is included in my stay I usually avoid eating breakfast in my hotel. I rather go to a local corner cafe spot for breakfast where it’s cheaper and get a better feel of the city.

4. Making Extra Cash

Travel doesn’t have to come directly out of your account. If you have a skill, sell it! Maybe you have a side hustle you enjoy doing that can add cash to that dream trip you want.

5. Choose Transportation Wisely

Public transportation is usually the best and cheapest way to get around a city (depending where). I normally like to walk around and explore when traveling or use ride sharing apps. I usually have a car waiting for me at an airport so I know ahead what I’m spending and feel more comfortable knowing there’s someone waiting for me. Definitely allow the luxury of an arranged ride when you are weighed down with luggage… but otherwise, if you can, use public transportation.

6. Pick Credit Cards That Give You The Most Points

I always use a credit card that accumulate points on purchases. I get a lot of points when I travel and book all my flights with it too. Look into a card that will give you rewards.

7. Use Your Age

Ask about student discounts! If you have a school ID – USE IT! This has worked out for me so many times, even at home in New York. I can still get away with it sometimes… if only to be 22 again!


I hope these simple hacks can help make your next trip more affordable!

11 Ways You Can Get Paid To Travel The World

 

Have you ever considered making a career out of travel? Working your way around the world? Being a digital nomad so you can travel wherever, whenever? Years ago, the idea of working while traveling never occurred to me. I thought in order to travel you had two options: 1) wait until your annual vacation days rolled around, or 2) save up so you could quit your job and budget your way around the world until your travel fund ran out before repeating the process again.

Back then, I knew there had to be another way. I felt homesick for Italy (where I had studied abroad two years prior) and with a yearning desire to see more of Europe, I consulted Google University to see if there was any way I could travel for my job. Not much came up on Google back in 2013, however, I remembered the names of some group travel companies for students during my time in Italy. There are tour guides leading the trips, right? So that’s exactly what I set out to do: be a tour guide.

I applied for a company based in Italy, landed an interview, and got the offer. A few months later I found myself stepping off the plane in Florence, Italy, dragging my luggage across cobblestone streets to the apartment I would call home for six months.

Everyone said I was crazy when I told them what I wanted to do; they would say that when you graduate college you “have to” get an 8-5 job you don’t really like in order to justify your diploma. “Keep your head down for two years” was a phrase I heard many times. When life is anything but guaranteed, “keeping my head down” and droning through my days was the exact opposite of what I wanted – especially when I had a feeling my work + travel experience would boost my resume, not hurt it.

 

Working while traveling is a challenging, rewarding, and growing experience. Not only do you gain valuable skills through your job (or simply by being on the road), working abroad stands out on your resume. When I returned home after working in Italy, my work + travel experience was always a point of conversation during interviews, and it helped me land what was my dream job at the time (yes, it was an 8-5)!

Now having worked multiple jobs abroad, whether it was during my vacation time, between moves, or most recently, online work for my business, I truly believe travel careers are something worth considering for those who feel called to them.

 

 

Here are 11 ways you can get paid to travel.

Location Based Jobs Abroad

There are many ways you can work abroad, whether it is short-term, long-term, or open-ended.

First, you’ll want to consider your schedule, current work situation, and – if you’re looking at long-term or open-ended jobs – if you’re able and willing to move to another city or country when looking at location-based jobs.

After, you’ll need to determine how you’re getting paid and/or if the job covers any travel expenses.

 1. Tour Guide

 

As mentioned above, being a tour guide in Italy introduced me to the world of working abroad.

You can work for a group travel company like I did, which offered full package multi-day trips (this means working overnight and long hours, but you’re literally traveling for work so it’s not a bad tradeoff).

Alternatives could be leading city tours, day trips, or specialty tours (think wine tours or food tours).

2. Work for Your Company at Their International Office

 

Do you already work for an international company? Do they have offices in other countries, and can you do your position at any of those offices? Do you speak the language if the international office doesn’t communicate in your native language?

A friend of mine did this a few years ago. She works for an international hotel chain and was able to transfer to the hotel in London, and her husband did the same with his accounting job. I have another friend who works at a public relations agency and transferred to the New York City office.

Look into it!

3. Work for an NGO or a Government Organization Abroad

There are both NGOs and governmental organizations all over the world. If you have the experience and drive to work abroad in support of an NGO or your country, then it doesn’t hurt to see what’s out there.

4. Educational Conferences

Over the past six years I’ve worked eight conferences as a faculty member for international students, teaching curriculum on cross-cultural communication and business/entrepreneurship. Doing this took me to Europe, China, Washington, DC, New York City, and Yale University. In exchange for the (very) long hours I would get a paycheck and/or travel expenses covered, like flights, housing, and meals.

The conferences I personally worked at ranged from nine days to 2.5 months, and I applied for conferences that worked around my schedule (shorter ones when I was using vacation time from my 8-5 job; longer ones when I was working for myself since my work was flexible).

There are many educational conferences or student travel companies, usually in the summer. Like any event, conferences don’t just need educators or speakers – they need managers and logistical, behind-the-scenes staff, too. There are many roles you can find with this if you’re looking for a short-term work + travel opportunity.

5. Seasonal Jobs

 

Going off the point above, there are many seasonal jobs you could consider if you’re looking for something short-term. Summer camps and ski resorts around the world are two examples that come to mind of places who seek additional help for a short time.

6. Flight Attendant or Pilot

This one seems obvious, doesn’t it?! You are literally traveling for your job and go wherever the plane goes. Flight crew tend to get decent perks and discounts from the airline they work for, too.

7. Cruise Ship Employee

This is another job that has you traveling for work, as you go wherever the ship goes!

Because a cruise ship has a lot of moving parts in order to keep it running successfully, there are a variety of jobs available, even ones you might not normally think of – a few years back I considered applying to be a fitness instructor (out of all positions!) aboard a Caribbean cruise ship.

8. Teach English Abroad

If you’re a native English speaker, consider teaching English at a school abroad. This is a very popular travel job, especially for recent grads, as the requirements are usually pretty simple: be a native English speaker, have a bachelor’s degree in any subject, and hold a certification with TESOL or TEFL. Many TESOL or TEFL certifications can be done online, and there are also companies that will match you up with a school.

You’ll be based in a foreign country and can travel on weekends and school breaks. Some positions might cover your travel expenses, too, like flights, housing, or travel insurance.

Do your research on this one. Luckily, there is plenty of information online you can find with a simple Google or Pinterest search.

Work Online and Travel

 

We live in a fascinating day and age with the advancements of technology. Many people are working a full-time job remotely, doing freelance/contract work, or starting businesses they can run entirely online.
If you have the self-motivation to get work done on your own and an entrepreneurial spirit, then consider these opportunities you can do anywhere with Wi-Fi.

9. Freelance Work

 

When you are freelancing, you are self-employed and work with clients (businesses or individuals). You get paid for the service(s) you provide, whether that be hourly, project-based, or on an on-going basis. You can freelance anything, and if you’re working online, all you need is your laptop and an internet connection.

Many companies that hire freelancers do so to save on costs they would put toward a traditional employee like health care or benefits. Depending on what you’re doing, as a freelancer you can usually set your own hours (get work done on your own time) and work from anywhere.

For the past 2.5 years I’ve worked entirely online as a freelancer, doing social media marketing, Pinterest, and online coaching for various companies. Most of my client work is month-to-month which helps me feel more secure with my income.

I highly recommend looking into freelance work if you are just getting started with your work + travel lifestyle as it doesn’t require you to start a business or create products of your own. You can get started with no upfront cost, and since you’re getting paid for your services, there is no physical inventory you need to worry about when traveling.

10. Start an Online Business

With that said, starting and running an online business is definitely something you can do while traveling. Depending on what you do it will likely take a lot of work, hustle, and determination to validate your offerings, make sales, and keep it running.

But wait, how do you run an online business without physical products?

For one, you could do something service-based, like run a marketing agency or do online coaching. You could create a mobile app. You could sell digital products like e-courses, online memberships, e-books; license stock photos or videos; do consulting, do drop-shipping…the list goes on!

11. Blogger or Content Creator

 

Many people are monetizing their online presence and personal brands, whether it be through blogging, social media platforms like Instagram, YouTube, and podcasts.

This is usually not the quickest route to making money online, though it can be entirely rewarding if you feel passionate about it. Additionally, you can use it as a platform or portfolio for freelance services (before my blog made any money I used it as a portfolio for potential clients to showcase my experience building an audience).

As far as making money as a blogger or content creator, there are many ways to do so. The most popular and common way is to work with brands and showcase products in exchange for exposure on your platform.

Bloggers and content creators often set up affiliate marketing links (earning commission off recommended products clicked through their links) on their blog posts or video descriptions.

Another common option is to consider selling digital products based on the niche of your platform. For example, if you are a photographer you could create and sell an e-book or e-course on photography tips for beginners.

 

There you have it! Use this list as a launching pad to see what is out there in terms of working abroad, or even making a career out of travel. Do your best to ditch the excuses and get resourceful about how you can make it happen!

An Instagrammable Guide To Bermuda

Bermuda is the land of crystal clear waters, sandy, cliffside beaches and pure natural beauty. In the midst of rainy, dreary weather, I was thrilled to team up with Cheap Caribbean, an online travel agency focused on tropical beach vacations, to explore sunny, warm Bermuda with other Dame Travelers in tow on our second Dame Traveler Trip of the year! In between soaking in the delicious warmth and swaying palm trees, the brilliant and genius Jess of The Wondering Dreamer and I took a deep dive into our how-tos travel photography and were able to give our insight and expertise to some absolutely wonderful girls. This deliciously beautiful island nation has plenty of gorgeous vantage points to photograph. But where should a girl start? Jess and I spent a lot of time curating the perfect spots for you to capture some lovely photographs of Bermuda. Here is our Instagrammable guide to Bermuda, its many beaches, outlooks, photogenic alley ways and quiet corners!

An Instagrammable Guide To Bermuda

With two photograph-obsessed leaders like Jess and I creating an itinerary with Cheap Caribbean around Bermuda, it’s easy to see how much fun it is to explore a new place with a camera in tow. Our goal was to give our gal pals the chance to explore the island nation with a photographic eye, while also teaching them how to capture their travels. In between traipsing through sunny Bermuda, we hosted tutorial sessions and photo shoots throughout the trip and even gave the girls a fabulous book of tips for them to keep!

Elbow Beach

If there’s ever been a perfect setting to watch a stunning sunset, it might be right on Elbow Beach. The girls, Jess and I had so much fun savoring the watercolor skies and cotton candy clouds as the sun said goodbye for the day. No better way to end the day.

Exploring St. George’s

This quaint and charming little town is filled with so many gems! Wandering down the narrow streets of St. George is a feast for the eyes – so many textures, colors and sights to see. Be sure to visit St. Peter’s Church and its iconic and photogenic staircase, as well as the many local restaurants and boutiques. We had an absolute ball capturing portraits of each other throughout the city.

Jobson Cove

Nestled and tucked away, Jobson Cove is the perfect little escape. It’s also incredibly photogenic with the craggy stones that catapult directly into the electric ocean blues. Couldn’t you just imagine Ariel from The Little Mermaid brushing her hair in this cove? It’s oh so dreamy!

An Instagrammable Guide To Bermuda

Horseshoe Bay

Bermuda’s best scenes are those that make you feel close to the power of the ocean. That’s why I loved shooting Horseshoe Bay’s volcanic looking rocks and crystal clear ocean tides. Doesn’t this bay look like a place stuck in time? Maneuvering around these rocks was quite a fete, but absolutely worth it!

Sunset On Abbotts Cliff

Who doesn’t love a sunset overlooking a sprawling, colorful scene? Jess and I knew that we wanted to have as many opportunities as possible to capture Bermuda’s iconically gorgeous sunsets, so we did our research and discovered Abbotts Cliff. Although it can be a hike to reach the top of the cliff, all of us did it in dresses… yeah girl power! Taking a few minutes to be grateful, appreciative and mindful on top of the cliff while hearing the crashing and lapping of the ocean waves was so rejuvenating.

Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club

The Hamilton Princess Hotel is the cutest, chicest and Instagrammable lodgings in Bermuda. The iconic millennial pink is the perfect color that pops against the swaying, green palms and the bright sky blue. We had a blast finding tucked away corners to shoot portraits against the pastel pink facade of the hotel! Be sure to sip on some wine or enjoy a luxurious tea here in between beaching, sunning and exploring this beautiful island nation.

Admiralty House Park

Pack a picnic (sushi was divine, if you want to follow our lead!), slip your shoes off and be sure to aim your camera because the Admiralty House Park is so lush… it’d be a shame not to capture its beauty. Feeling so close and connected to the water, dipping our toes in between playing with photo compositions and long talks about the good things in life…. HEAVEN!


If you’re looking for paradise, it’s only about a two hour flight from JFK airport! Here’s hoping when you visit Bermuda that you find peace, relaxation… and capture some stunning photographs along the way!

Celebrating Sisterhood In Sri Lanka: Our Social Media And Photography Workshop Round Up

Celebrating Sisterhood In Sri Lanka: Our Social Media And Photography Workshop Round Up

We’re still reeling from the absolute joyride our very first Dame Traveler Trips  social media and photography workshop was! Today we wanted to spotlight some of our very favorite moments of our time celebrating sisterhood and exploring the beauty of Sri Lanka. Are you ready? Let’s go!

About The Workshop

For our first Dame Traveler Adventure workshop, we joined forces with the genius photographer Laura Grier. Together, we were able to create a ten day trip of a lifetime (organized by the ever gracious and Sri Lankan local, Sherene Hululgalle of Jasmine Vine (Marry Me in Sri Lanka) also allowed us to teach other Dame Travelers the ins and outs of creating keepsake travel photos and using social media platforms to elevate their storytelling online. Dream team? I think yes! The unforgettable adventures that followed are still rolling in my mind’s eye. Each day was stocked with explorations on any traveler’s bucket list – from visiting ruins, soaking in warm waters on pristine beaches, hiking through Tea Country and at sunrise – there were so many incredible experiences, images and moments captured together.

From our very first day in Colombo, relaxing and enjoying the city (in between getting to know each other), I knew we were in for a wonderful adventure together. Our days were balanced with time to experience beautiful Sri Lanka and learn the tricks of the trade of social media and photography. The ancient kingdoms and ruins of Anuradhapura and learning about the mysterious history of the island filled our first few days with wonder and a sense of excitement.

The girls and I threw on our jungle khakis and went on a life-changing drive to see elephants! Seeing these magical, enormous creatures in the flesh was so incredible. Their majestic beauty and the other amazing wildlife we encountered had us beside ourselves.

Journeying to the green hillsides of Camellia Hills, filled with Cyprus and Eucalyptus trees and enjoying scenic train rides to other parts of the island’s tea farms allowed us to see the country with new eyes and provided us with many a photo shoot location! A favorite memory by far is hiking the Adam’s Peak Pilgrimage for two days. The early morning sunrises, scenic vistas and memories made on the trail were timeless.

Heading on to Galle on the south coast of Sri Lanka, we were greeted with some of the most stunning beaches and picturesque fishing villages. Some highlights of our time in the south coast include exploring the rich history of Galle Fort, exploring the charming cobblestoned streets, witnessing the stilted fisherman (an image that will stick with me forever!) and lots of down time on the beaches of Kumu. Of course, with our focus being on creating gorgeous imagery, these experiences opened up a world of opportunities to learn and grow from the never ending charm and detail of Sri Lankan architecture, historic sights and colorful facades.

While exploring beautiful Sri Lanka, it was so nice to be able to retire to a calm, peaceful resting place. We loved all of our unique lodgings, including our stay in traditional tea planter’s bungalows high on the hills and historic townhouses in Galle Forte. Each hotel boasted a special quality and featured homegrown meals, warm and inviting staff members and attention to detail.

Our gorgeous Camellia Hills Hotel was the perfect resting place to relax and enjoy some quality time getting to know each other. We loved their beautiful baths and canopy beds, as well as their gorgeous view overlooking the hills and rivers of Sri Lanka.

Tucked away in the hilly jungles of the island, the Ulagalla Hotel was the perfect place to recoup and relax. Their property truly felt like a piece of the jungle landscape. Walking through their dense trees and lawns was a total treat!

Being able to share my insight in using social media platforms as a resource to engage, connect and curate meaningful content was a dream come true (and let me tell you, having it being set in such a gorgeous locale didn’t hurt either)! Discussing the ins and outs of social media challenges, successes and shedding some light on how we create beautiful imagery online was encouraging and so special. I can’t wait to continue to grow this educational side of our community here at Dame Traveler.

Celebrating Sisterhood

Our time in Sri Lanka ended up being more than just a social media and photography workshop. Each one of us came from diverse backgrounds and beautifully arrayed personalities and backgrounds. But regardless of our differences, our mutual love and passion for travel and celebrating women let us all be open up and learn from one another. It’s amazing what happens when women support each other. I feel like I have personally grown so much from knowing these beautiful souls. What’s amazing about these sorts of Dame Traveler Adventures is that it is a gathering of the minds, hearts and spirits. I cannot wait to continue to host more workshops like this, especially because of all the amazing women I hope to meet through the process.

 

Dame Traveler is all about celebrating the sisterhood of traveling women… and having the opportunity to connect with these wonderful women brings our mission to the forefront. So many friendships made, words and secrets shared and memories captured together!


I promise you that the generosity of the Sri Lankan people, the delicious flavors of their traditional meals and epic landscapes and historical sights are, without a doubt, life changing.
