Best Travel Gear 2017

After years and years of experimenting with travel gear, I have finally found some of the best travel gear and created a list. The best travel gear lists my favorite travel gadgets and items I have been using for my travels to over 60+ countries.

Scott’s Cheap Flights

Finding cheap flights can be really hard…it can take hours or days of researching. Luckily, Scott has taken care of all of the hard work so you can sit back and jump on these crazy cheap deals when they fit your travel needs. My favorite thing about Scott’s Cheap Flights is the fact that they only send the BEST deals. They don’t flood your inbox with a $50 off sale. Normally, it is a crazy deal like 50% off or sometimes a $600+ discount!  Sign up today for FREE to start getting the great deals.

If you don’t like the bidding aspect of Priceline then is your best bet. This is a site I have used all over Europe and all of the experiences and hotels have turned out great! For $25 off your next booking use this coupon.

The Secret Traveler Blog

This travel writer from 1Cover has gone incognito to share some of the best kept secret spots around the world and other useful travel tips.


AirBnB has revolutionized the way accommodation is being booked worldwide. The site lets almost anyone rent out their spare room, apartment or accommodation. This system creates a huge supply of places to stay worldwide and gives travelers a great alternative to overpriced hotels. Use THIS link for a $25 credit on your next trip!


Expedia is a industry leader for flights, hotels, cruises and vacation packages. They have a pretty cool loyalty program that can provide some great benefits for future travel.  Expedia is worth checking out and you’ll save a lot of money by booking hotels and flights together.


TripAdvisor is world’s largest travel site, they have great deals on everything from flights to hotels. I love the way they arrange reviews for “Things To Do” in each city. This gives you user reviews for the best things in every city. Tripadvisor also has a huge active community that can help answer practically any travel concerns.


HostelWorld offers the biggest selections of Hostels and Guesthouses in the world. They have a great interface and the phone app is perfect for traveling. You can click the link to sign up for a Free Gold Card  (Eliminates Service Fees for Booking).


Maybe Hostels aren’t your style. Priceline is my favorite and an awesome bidding site for Hotels where you can save a ton of money. Save up to 60% on Hotels & 40% on Flights.


Bus2Alps is a student & backpacker travel company that arranges  the best tours around Europe. If you want to take a trip with informative guides, like minded fun people and travel on a budget this is the tour company for you! After traveling with a lot of companies in Europe, Bus2Alps is by far the best. If you use the gift code “SWIGMEETSWORLD” you will get 5% off any tour! This is an exclusive gift code for my readers.


This is the best site to book tours, they offer 10,000+ tours & activities worldwide. If you want to save money and have a guided tour or just want to find some cool things to do, Viator is your best option.


SkyScanner is the BEST for discount flights in Europe. The site also offers some other great features, my favorite is to select your Outbound City or “To” City as “Everywhere.” Basically this lets you see the cheapest flights to “Everywhere” from your origin city. It is perfect for snagging a cheap flight when you’re not sure where to go!

STA Travel

If you are a student you should definitely check out the discounted flights on STA Travel. They have a ton of travel deals for students, right now you can get some flights to Europe under $600.


Want FREE accommodation, but more importantly a great local experience? There is a couch waiting for you. Couchsurfing allows for you to stay free of charge on a persons couch. It is a really great service and one I recommend for any type of traveler.

World Nomads Travel Insurance

World Nomads has the best travel insurance by far. Travel insurance covers more than just some health problems you might have abroad. It can cover stolen belongings, flight cancelation or natural disasters. World Nomads is recommended by Lonely Planet and National Geographic and many other travel companies. Click Here to get a quote. 


If you are traveling in Asia then this is the best site to find hotels, hostels and guesthouses. There is a huge selection thousands of hotels with a book now, pay later system.
