Over 10 years of experience and support
Hi there, I’m Abi
Today, I’m a full time travel writer and author with work published by National Geographic Traveler and a travel blog that Lonely Planet called “one of the best in the world.”
I’ve travelled to over 60 countries and I love a good road trip!
How much is your time worth?
If you billed the time you spend travel planning, studies suggest that planning errors could cost you as much as $2500 in hourly fees alone. Not to mention any expensive mistakes you make along the way.
You deserve to plan a great trip for less!
These planners streamline your planning with focus and clarity, freeing you up to travel more (or just scroll through instagram or whatever, there’s no judging here.)
Is this a paper product?
Nope! This is 100% digital, meaning that you can download and use it right away. You can print out the worksheets and planning pages that you need and leave those you don’t. Better for the environment, quicker for you.
What’s the order time? These are digital products and so will reach your inbox anywhere between five and fifty minutes. The webinar masterclass takes place approximately once a month, so it will depend when in the cycle you join.
Will this work for family road trips? YES! I’ve travelled through Greece, Louisiana, Massachusetts, England, Wales and Florida with baby and then toddler Lab. I know the realities of a family road trip very well!
I’m planning a solo road trip. Will this work for me?
Yes, absolutely! The planning process is the same and the Handbook specifically has a section for solo travel. I’ve driven across Morocco, Australia and Austria on my own and so I know what it’s like.
What’s the refund policy? As the Road Trip Planner is full of digital downloads, we can’t offer a refund policy on this. Please look closely at the contents before you buy.
Can I edit the downloads? If you have Adobe Creative Suite membership, you can edit the PDF files. However, you won’t be able to edit them within usual word processing software like Google Docs or Word. If this is a feature you would like, please email [email protected] We are always looking to improve our products.
The best time is now
Don’t put it off any longer. Get ready to hit the road!
Just think where you could be with this time saving formula.
With friends on Route 66? Family in California? Or all alone heading into the jungles of Thailand, the sands of the Sahara or the snowy peaks of Europe?
It’s time to give yourself the best chance and get things done so that you can get out and go.
