5 Must Have Travel Tools! | Zaakirah Nayyar

It's pretty affordable to travel, as stated in this post. However, being a freelance and creative entrepreneur, it's not always easy to save money. I have done my research and tested out everything mentioned. Here are my top five travel tools for saving money before, during, and after your trip.

Yes, if you have read this post, there are a lot of options to choose from for accommodations, but I still chose Airbnb because of the home-like feeling they have. It is convenient for me to get a place to crash in for last minute travels. Most Airbnb homes have such unique vibes. I have stayed in three of them so far. A lot of them give me design inspiration. Did I mention it's affordable? Shed dollars off of your first or next domestic or international stay, on me!

Uber
No matter where you go in the U.S., sometimes you just want to get picked up and delivered quickly, especially traveling to or from airports that may not have a convenient public transportation stop. My favorite part about Uber is riding with someone without requiring much speaking. Everything from selecting the vehicle to paying at the end of the trip is all on the app on your phone. Sometimes it's not that easy to depend on someone you know personally for transportation when you are on a tight schedule. Uber is great for out of country trips as well. Word has it that those are the best Uber drivers because they also act as a tour guide as they are usually natives of the country. Trust me, it is cheaper than a taxi or limo, especially if you choose one here!

Say you picked up a seasonal job. You've wanted to try the $5 savings challenge, $20 savings challenge, any other challenge, but you just can't keep up with it, right? One emergency leads to another, and now you’ve completely lost track of your goal. Well have no fear, Digit is here, and it saves for you. If you do happen to notice a difference, they can easily give you your money back all by a simple text demand. They send such fun text messages with my checking and digit savings balances. As a result, I have no need to check my account on a regular basis, especially when I know the balance is small. It works for you, not against you. The best part? It’s completely free to set up! Tell them I sent you!

Do you shop online? Do you like Amazon? Well, earn cashback on all your purchases from your favorite stores. It was so exciting to receive my first check in the mail from Ebates! It was five dollars, and as a bonus, they included a $10 Walmart gift card! It is so easy to set up! There's an app for that on your phone! Make sure you always go there first before shopping OR use it from your desktop/laptop as a browser extension. Be sure to select the option to activate cash back that pops up on the right side of your screen when you visit a retail website. Give it a whirl!

Groupon
In this post, I briefly mentioned Groupon, however, if you have not heard of it before, think of it as an online auction. It’s one of the best places to buy the things you want such as luggage, destination trips, airport parking, and high-quality travel electronics and accessories at a great discounted price but for a limited time only. Explore the amazing world for yourself!


Well, there you have it! What are some of your favorite travel tools?
