Travel Tips and Hints

Making Friends Backpacking

Making friends whilst travelling not only adds to the experience but can also cut costs when looking at hiring rooms and accommodation. Hostels are a great place to meet people and other backpackers.

Creating a Budget

At first creating a budget and daily cash allowance may seem boring and unnecessary but hidden costs always make an appearance. The last thing you want to have to do is pay for items on credit whilst abroad.

Backpackers Travel Insurance

Make sure you purchase the right travel insurance, not every travel insurance policy will include backpackers moving from one country to another

Buying a Rucksack

Buying the right size rucksack is essential, too big and it will slow you down, too small and you'll be living in one pair of jeans and a t-shirt. We've collected some of the best rucksacks on Amazon on our rucksack page.
