AirBnB – House, apartment, and shared accommodations around the world. There are often weekly and monthly discounts offered by hosts. / Sign up through this link and get $40 off of your first accommodation; completing your first stay will give us $20 in travel credit!

HelpX – Find volunteer opportunities globally, often in exchange for free, or discounted, room and/or board. We assisted in teaching English in Mexico and Thailand for one week (each) and house and pet-sat two kitties for a couple in Greece for one month.

Trusted Housesitters – House and pet-sitting opportunities worldwide – You stay in a local’s home for free! We house and pet-sat a Whippet mix dog for a family in Edinburgh, Scotland, for a week and five small dogs and two cats for a family in the London suburbs for six weeks. / Get 20% off of your membership by signing up through this link, and we’ll get two free months added onto our existing membership!

Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card – Taking advantage of credit cards that offer bonus points have saved over $3,000 on airline tickets to date (seriously)! The card we recommend is Chase Sapphire Preferred. All you have to do is spend $4,000 in purchases in the first 3 months from the date you open your account. For us, we got started on working towards this minimum spend amount before we left for our trip. We put expenses we have anyway, such as groceries, on the card and then paid it off in full from our checking account when each monthly bill was due. This could be a great way for you to cover the cost of your flight(s) partially, if not completely, for future trips! If you apply for the card through this link (and your application is accepted), you’ll receive an offer for 50,000 bonus points if you meet the minimum spend criteria ($4,000 in charges to the card within the first 3 months of opening your account), and we’ll get 10,000 bonus points credited to our account, too.

Uber – Through this mobile app, request a local driver on-demand. It’s basically like a taxi service, except the cost is disclosed up-front based on your pick-up and drop-off locations you specify when requesting the driver, you receive the driver’s name, photo, license plate number, and car make/model in advance, payment is arranged through the app (rather than directly with the driver), and the driver is in their own vehicle instead of a taxi cab. / Get $5 off of your first four rides when you sign up through this link, and we’ll get a free ride!

Booking – If you reserve an accommodation through Booking with this link, you’ll get $20 credited to your account once you stay (and so will we)!


Fitness Pro Travel (Fit Bodies, Inc) – Vacation at luxury beachfront resorts in exchange for teaching fitness classes! This company works with resorts in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. I taught two Zumba® classes per day for one week at Secrets Huatulco in Oaxaca, Mexico. / If you book a trip through this link, I will receive an 8% affiliate discount on a future booking.
