Travel Insurance


Sometimes life happens… And it gets EXPENSIVE! Be prepared and covered with insurance. I’ve done the homework for you already! Everyone has different needs but these are the top two travel insurance companies I use depending on my trip. Here’s more info on travel insurance and what happened when I travel for FOUR YEARS uninsured! And I have more info for those who are in need of more long-term insurance needs as well.

Dealing with Money


Let’s keep it REALLY simple. I use only three methods of money for my travels. One for ATM and purchases, one for transferring and one credit card. Here’s how to manage your money best while abroad, trust me, I’ve tried all the things already!

Hands down the only travel card an American traveler needs. You get reimbursed for each ATM fee incurred and they don’t charge a dime themselves. Depending on what account you open, you could get $100 bucks (code REFER. nonaffiliated)

THE easiest way to transfer money, especially in different currencies, around the world. It doesn’t hurt to compare, but I’ve found it to be the cheapest.

Phone Plan


There are numerous ways to stay connected abroad without breaking the bank. Here’s everything I’ve used/currently use now. Choose which is best for you. One of the most important things to do before you leave home though, is make sure you have an unlocked phone!

If you don’t want to use any of  these methods below, your other choice would entail purchasing a new SIM card in each country you visit.

Google Fi

Thanks Google! They’ve made it so easy with their GoogleFi SIM card. Unfortunately you have to be in the USA to activate it but otherwise, once that’s done, your phone will work in over 100 countries. This is what I currently use.

T-Mobile

This is what I used for years and it worked great. This is best if you plan on traveling often but not for long durations of time (like years). They offer the best roaming data plan out there right now!

Hot Spot

Don’t want to get a new carrier or  SIM card? Don’t have an unlocked phone? This is pretty much your best best then! Skyroam is great for anyone wanting their own personal hotspot. You can connect up to five devices so it’s even cheaper if you’re with friends. Get 10% off your purchase with code: Nina77
