Airbnb is just as clean? Even big hotels can messed up big time, just search "See Which Hotels Were Caught Not Changing Bedsheets for New Guest". People or agents that handle these apartments are not professionals.

OMG! Go incognito when researching -- the best tip ever!
ronnnnie (11 months ago)
thanks for your tip about booking flights. it's always the most difficult thing to figure out flight prices on different days. My tip would be depositing cash from your debit card from local ATMs during your travel.. Even after the service charge, the exchange rate is still pretty good and you can always get smaller bills this way. Also, it makes me nervous to carry so many cash on me, esp. if I'm on a trip longer than a week.

Thank you for the great tip. Bank of america has a travel reward credit card where you get a travel points for purchases and no foreign transaction fee. I use it all the time during travel and pay off my balance when back home. That way, minimum cash exchange required :)

Going to Namibia next Summer. I'm afraid the public transport and airbnb tips won't work for that xD
Cris Rodrigues (1 year ago)
Very very userful info. May I  kindly ask  you a video about how to make your baggage? or perhaps like how to make the ideal luggage, since you travel so much I guess it helps a lot. Considering  that  in some cases   specially when you travel with  a child, you want to make maximal use of your luggage space but do not know how to avoid useless things or forget important ones.Thanks once more.

I never really search in these websites since I use JetBLue when I travel which is not frequent but there are some destinations that JetBLue doesn't offer from Puerto Rico (my country) so I have to do a connected flight but for example to Tokyo there's no flight unless I take one to NYC and then get another airline to Japan but for future trips I'll use these website just to have a look on average prices. .
Sierra Lisse (1 year ago)
Really wonderful tips. I find the Hello Talk and the SkyScanner 'Can't Decide Where' absolutely mind-blowing. So thank you for posting this. It's always lovely and wonderful to watch your videos. The aesthetics are so pleasing and yet so simple. I'm trying to improve my videos bit by bit :D

Thank you so much about planning for trips, especially when traveling outside of the United States! I’ve seen many videos about travel tips and I have to say I learn many new things about planning just watching this video such as the websites and apps that you mention and now I use them to help me plan my trips. Using incognito was a huge surprise for me and I never thought about it until I saw this video. Thank you so much for sharing your tips and recommendations. 😊

THANK YOU for sharing Airbnb!!! I am planning a trip and hotel prices are extremely high during this peak season we must travel in, and the hotels aren't even that nice. I checked out Airbnb and there are some really nice rooms for a fraction of the price as hotels. I have never tried Airbnb before.. great idea!!

My experience while traveling to Thailand, was to exchange money once you arrive in Thailand. The rule of thumb is to bring new $100 bills. You will get a better exchange rate than getting the money from your home bank.
