Just a quick post today.
Once a year, I like doing a reader survey to learn what everyone thinks of the website, discover ways we can improve, find out about things you like that we’re missing, and get a sense of how you all plan your trips and travel.
We didn’t do a survey last year because, well, COVID and all.
But, with the world opening up again and travel so changed, I wanted to do one now.
These surveys help us know a bit more about you, understand your travel style, how you plan, and give us a chance to get your feedback on what content you want to see more (or less) of here on the website.
This year, we’re going to redesign the website, start taking guest posts again, and further develop our virtual and in-person events series.
So, if you want to share your opinion and help shape the direction of this website, click here to fill out the survey. It’s completely anonymous.
This is a longish survey and will probably take 5-10 minutes to complete, but it will really help us improve this website and guide our future content.
With travel resuming in various stages this year, your feedback makes it a lot easier for us to serve you better.
I would greatly appreciate it if you took the time to complete the survey so we’re able to give you the content you need to travel cheaper, safer, longer, and smarter.
That it’s! If you have any questions, drop them in the comments!
Book Your Trip: Logistical Tips and Tricks
Book Your Flight
Find a cheap flight by using Skyscanner. It’s my favorite search engine because it searches websites and airlines around the globe so you always know no stone is being left unturned.
Book Your Accommodation
You can book your hostel with Hostelworld. If you want to stay somewhere other than a hostel, use Booking.com as it consistently returns the cheapest rates for guesthouses and hotels.
Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
Travel insurance will protect you against illness, injury, theft, and cancellations. It’s comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong. I never go on a trip without it as I’ve had to use it many times in the past. My favorite companies that offer the best service and value are:
- SafetyWing (best for everyone)
- Insure My Trip (for those 70 and over)
- Medjet (for additional evacuation coverage)
