How do we travel for less?

For years I've scrolled through Instagram trying to work out how these travel bloggers afford to live such lavish lifestyles and travel so well.

As a travel journalist myself I know that while FAM and Press trips are an incredible way of building an authority within the travel industry they're far and few between. I got sick of waiting for the phone to ring and decided to find a way to travel and earn at the same time.

A year ago I finally discovered the secret to travelling smart in the form of becoming a home/travel based independent travel agent. By joining this business we're now travelling more and smarter than we've ever done before as a family and the best bit... I get paid to do it!
