New video! Tips for how to afford more travel

By far, the question I get asked the  most is how I am able to afford all the travel I do.  I make at least 10 international trips a year: this year alone I’ve been to a slew of destinations such as Russia, South Africa, Botswana, and Zambia, and I’m currently writing these words from my hotel room in Hawaii, the last stop on my 3.5 week, 8 country round the world trip.

The answer is fairly multi-faceted, and a wrote a very detailed post explaining the various ways in which I make this life of travel work.  However, for those who are more skewed towards the audio-visual side of things, I’ve just posted a video on my Youtube channel talking about my tips and tricks for abundant travel.  So make sure you give it a watch and let me know what you think!

What do you think of my process?  Do you employ any of these practices? What strategies do you use?

    I think that your first tip regarding flexibility – particularly regarding a destination – is one that a lot of people don’t always consider. For me, it is almost always the price that determines where I travel, and I have a maximum amount in mind that I am willing to pay for any given international flight.

    Hi Oneika,
    Thank you for the tips. With your frequent travels, do you use a credit card rewards program? It was not directly mentioned in the video. I have a friend benefits greatly from United Mileage Program however his credit card is linked to his business therefore he can collect many free travel miles. I would not be so lucky and it would take years to get a free flight.

    I’m looking forward to your post on how you packed for RTW trip. Thanks

  • Really great tips! Some of these tips I use myself, but I’m working on the flexibility by hoping to transition to a more digital nomad style, which will actually allow that flexibility (hard to do when you have to give notice at work). Thanks again for the great video and great post!

    I like your idea to just travel and not be concerned about the destination. I’ll keep that in mind when considering that I just need to be open to the experience. 🙂
