Traveling Essentials

Getting Around

We prefer Lyft to Uber because it always seems to be cheaper, and in our experience with the drivers, they seem to be paid more with Lyft. Unfortunately, Lyft isn't available in as many markets. Anyway, Click Here to sign up receive a $5 discount.

Seeing the City

AirBNB is a great way to not only sleep like a local in thousands of cities, but now they offer "Experiences" that are hosted by locals and are a unique opportunity to see and do things that you wouldn't have known about. Use our link to get $40 off your first stay, and $15 toward your first experience. Click Here

Getting Around

Uber, the ride share giant is more likely to be in the area you'll be in. We haven't taken a taxi in years because we enjoy the transparent pricing and ease of Uber. Click Here to sign up and receive $2 off your first three rides.

Storing Your Stuff

BagBNB is our go-to resource when we have less time in a city. Lugging around your luggage can be a deterrent and can slow you down from getting all your sightseeing in. Click Here to sign up and have thousands of storage locations in over 100 destinations at your fingertips.

Packing Essentials

Her Bag

This cute bag is perfect for any trip whether you're jet setting across Europe, or on a road trip across the states. With a separate compartment for your shoes, you don't have to worry about getting your clothes dirty or not having enough room for more sandals, heels, and trainers.

Travel Steamer

This little guy heats up quickly and works great to steam the wrinkles out of clothes while traveling. I'll get you stopped at TSA 80% of the time, but still worth it.

His Bag

My husband highly recommends this bag. One thing he always says is: "A man should never pack more than he can carry." Because of that, you'll notice that it doesn't have wheels, but we think this makes it more durable. It also looks great, and works great as a carry-on.

Hair Straightener / Curling Iron

This two in one has an adjustable digital temp, and is dual voltage so you can use it pretty much anywhere in the world with electricity. Perfect for someone who wants to fix their hair while traveling, but is tight on space!
