Travel Insurance

Safety Wing

So many travel bloggers recommend Safety Wing as their go-to for travel insurance! WHY!? Because they truly understand travelers and their needs! They offer in-depth coverage which also covers adventurous activities. Safety Wing is for nomads traveling for 4 weeks or more but their pricing is so competitive even if you go on holiday for only 2 weeks, the 4-week plan will most likely be a fair bit cheaper than other insurance companies. They are your one-stop insurance company! 

Best Accommodation Sites



Agoda is our go-to booking platform. This site is especially brilliant for Asia destinations!  Without a doubt, they always find the cheapest rates for Asia accommodation and usually, we can find a room in a hotel there when it shows that it is booked out elsewhere!

Connect your flyer rewards cards and earn on your stay as well!!  We love Agoda!
