Extra Pack of Peanuts follows a couple’s inexpensive travels through 20 different countries. Figuring out tricks to spend less while traveling more, the couple has scored $5 plane tickets to watch the World Cup in Rio and stayed in five bedroom mansions for next to nothing.
They use frequent flyer miles and help others to do so as well by debunking the many myths associated with them. Aside from this, the couple also writes posts on how to score cheaper flights without even touching the flyer miles by and which budget airlines to travel with. They also cover travel tips that help their readers cut costs related to credit cards and accommodations. They shared that instead of getting rooms at hotels, they rent out apartments and find other loopholes to the aforementioned topics to ensure that they are getting the most out of the money they spend. If that isn’t enough, the two also offer step-by-step instructions in their blogs on how to find the cheapest car rentals and how to avoid those pesky prints that result in additional pricing for rent.
Also, as they offer a pre-travel checklist among a myriad of other travel tips, the couple covers the more technical side of travel while still documenting the beauties behind their travels and riding the destination inspiration wave. After getting to their destination using flyer miles and best credit cards to their fullest potential, they explore all the hidden gems in that particular destination while immersing themselves in the culture and tasting the very best foods. These explorations have allowed them to create a destination guide about all the things they loved (and perhaps didn’t), which is great because everyone loves getting travel recommendations after saving hundreds on flights and accommodations.
Expect to learn how to make your next vacation the smoothest (and cheapest!) one yet while reading their posts.
