BIG NEWS: New Budget Travel Guides and Book Updates!

Back in September, I announced the release of a series of travel guides, beginning with five cities around the world. They were handy resources for travelers that got to the point, included off the beaten path destinations, and directed people to more local restaurants and bars. But like all first editions, there was room for improvement. After getting some feedback and suggestions from readers, I took them offline and, though revised versions have been reuploaded and available since January, I […]

Updates From the Book Tour!

As the sun rises in Asheville, North Carolina, it is day 12 of my cross-country tour to promote my new book, How to Travel the World on $50 a Day. This is my seventh stop and I’m having an amazing time driving around the U.S., meeting other travelers, spreading the gospel of budget travel, and sightseeing in my own backyard. Since the book’s release a few weeks ago, a lot has happened and I wanted to share some of highlights […]

How You Can Travel the World Cheaper, Longer, and Smarter (Plus, get FREE stuff)

When I first wrote How to Travel the World on $50 a Day, it was just a small PDF guide with some travel coupons you downloaded from this site. It was meant to be a one stop, easy-to-follow guide for planning your trip. When Penguin publishing approached me to turn it into a print book in 2013, I was beyond thrilled. Me? With a book you could buy in a store? For a little kid who used to write in […]

How to Travel on $50 A Day: The Book Tour

Most people think it seems too good to be true that you can travel across the world on less than it costs to live at home. They believe that cheap travel is a pipe dream. But, as readers of the blog, you know that not to be true, and, in the coming months, I’m going to set out to prove that even more! As you know, next month I launch the brand new awesome edition of my book, How to […]

How to Travel the World on $50 a Day: The New Edition (and Special Offer)

In 2013, I published my first book, How to Travel the World on $50 A Day. However, information constantly changes in travel – tips get dated and new ways to save always emerge, which is why with great excitement, I’d like to announce an even bigger and better second edition of the book is on its way to a bookstore (and Urban Outfitters) near you. I’ve updated and revised existing content and added over 100 new pages of tips, tricks, and […]

BIG NEWS: Announcing the Start of a Budget Travel Guide Series

Today, I’m incredibly excited to share some big, big news about a project I’ve been working on for the last few months. Today marks the official launch of “Nomadic Matt’s Guidebooks” – a series of budget travel guides for destinations around the world. There are a lot of guidebooks out in the world, and each has their own personality. What makes my guides different from Lonely Planet, Frommer’s, Rough Guides, or anyone else? Mine remove the fluff, get right to […]

How to Hack a Free Trip Around the World: 2014 Edition

Travel hacking is a constantly changing world – tips, tricks, and advice that worked even a few months ago can suddenly be obsolete. Deals come and go, programs change, credit cards come and go, ways to game the system end as new ones begin, bank rules change – it’s endless! Nothing in travel is really evergreen. So six months after I released my book, The Ultimate Guide to Travel Hacking, it is time to re-release an expanded and updated version […]

How to Travel Anywhere For Free

Imagine being able to fly anywhere in the world as often as you want — for free. Imagine staying in an overwater bungalow in the Maldives for free. Wouldn’t that be great? Wouldn’t never paying flights and accommodation allow you to travel more? Well, it’s possible — and I know because I do it all the time. What’s kept me traveling for so many years is not great riches, but lots of frequent flier miles and hotel points. Every year […]

Now Available in a Bookstore (or Kindle) Near You: My Guide to Budget Travel

Today is the day. Available at a bookstore (or online retailer) near you is my new book, How to Travel the World on $50 a Day ($10-15 USD depending on the retailer). After over a year in the making, it’s finally here — and I’m emotional about it. But it’s a good kind of emotional. I’m very excited to finally introduce this book to the world: this 272 page, 60,000+ word treatise is the culmination of all my years of […]

Annual Ebook Updates PLUS, Pre-Order Information on My Upcoming Book

I’m going to take a break from travel tips for a second to do a little but very important housekeeping: In a world where things can change quickly, it’s important to always stay updated on the latest information. This is especially true when running an online business and providing help to others who want to do the same. Or helping people travel better. Or helping others find a teaching job overseas. Things just change so rapidly in this day and […]
