Exclusive deals, offers, hacks and honest recommendations to our readers.
Booking hotels – we recommend Booking.com. We always use them as they are always reliable, good value and never had any issues. You can also pay when you arrive which is great.

Holiday rentals, houses and flats – Airbnb is our favourite for this. An excellent website allowing you to have either a shared experience with a host or to book a holiday rental or home all to yourself.
Avoiding currency charges – we recommend Monzo. It is an incredible way around bank charges. Simple to sign up, get your card sent to you, top up your card and then you are able to spend money abroad without getting hit with big bank charges. Alternatively, you can use Transferwise, which we also use. It’s pretty much the exact same service and the rates are also fairly similar.
Running our website
Web hosting – we recommend SiteGround. We’ve used a number of hosts but are now happy with this we provider as it is extremely fast, secure and the customer service is excellent.
