2.Where to stay
Perfect to find fully equipped rooms or flats to feel like home. Without a doubt the search engine we use the most.

If you are passionate about animals this is your website. How about free accommodation in exchange for looking after the pets while the owners are on holiday?
The members of this website share their homes free of charge with travellers from all over the world. If you travel low-cost and want to meet local people there is no better place.
The world’s best hostel search engine. If you are looking for cheap accommodation and to meet other travellers like you, hostels are your best option.
3. Travel insurance
There is nothing better than travelling with the peace of mind that if anything happens you are in good hands. IATI is a travel insurer, recommended not only by us but also by a large part of the travel community.
Another big insurer specialised in travel. The coverages differ from IATI so you should read the terms and conditions of both carefully before purchasing any of them.
The cheapest insurance for digital nomads and the one we currently use. Although it does not cover electronic equipment or cancellations, the price compared to other insurances makes it one of the best options if you are a digital nomad.
4. Cards with no fees
Card with no fees when paying abroad. The free plan allows you to withdraw up to €200 from international ATMs without paying any fees, then it’s 2%. Very easy to use from your phone, it allows you to have everything under control in a very simple way.
Another choice when travelling. You are not charged fees for the first €500 you withdraw from foreign ATMs, and after that it is 1.5%.
This is a good option for those who prefer organised trips. When you want to book an organised excursion or guided tour, Civitatis offers a wide range of alternatives to suit all tastes and budgets.
The best car rental search engine. Select dates and compare the different models and companies.
Mobile App to hire cars with driver. The price of the journey is displayed before you confirm your booking, so there are no surprises.
The must-have app to get around Southeast Asia. Like Uber, you know the price of the trip before you take it. Prices are also lower than the street fares.
7. Ebooks and guides
The most complete guides used by many travellers. Wherever you go, Lonely planet has been there already and has written a guidebook.
Digital versions of the guides are the best way to have all the information at your fingertips without taking up much space in your suitcase. Check out these e-books readers for your next trip.
